  • "I know what's best for your dog"

    With a love for animals and with my criminal justice degree in hand, I began my career in animal welfare as a humane law enforcement officer. In my mind, it couldn’t get any better than this. I had such a drive, a pure desire to rescue animals. I would be the voice for the animals who couldn’t speak for themselves. I was empowered. I would find them, rescue them and get them into what I was sure were better, more loving homes.
