How long have you been with PPP?

3 months!

Do you have any pets? What are their names?

Sadly, not at the moment. Ollie was my last, a cat we rescued who passed away suddenly during the night. I grew up with many animals, mostly dogs and we are hoping to rescue more cats and dogs in the future!

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love finding a good book to lose myself in while I drink Starbucks, preferably a Venti Java Chip (delicious stuff!).

Do you have any secret talent or hobby?

For many years, my weekend hobby has been to visit the Humane Society and spend a couple of hours visiting the animals, especially the older and unlikely to be adopted types. It’s so important they all feel some type of love and kindness. It’s also a type of therapy for me as well. Win win!

Favorite part about working at PPP:

Being able to work with dogs has always been a dream and it hasn’t disappointed at PPP! Getting to meet so many different dogs and interact with them in a loving and playful way is amazing!

Favorite/funniest PPP moment:

It’s hard to pick just one moment so I’ll say my favorite times are when I can hold dogs in my arms, loving them like my own. You can feel them relax and melt into your arms comfortably. It’s always so hard to let go!

Favorite/funniest PPP moment:

A moment I thought was just that cutest was having a baby Schnauzer puppy (Freya) in the room with an adult mini Schnauzer (Sofie) who looked exactly like her! The puppy was like her mini-me! It was the cutest thing!

Favorite/funniest PPP moment:

My favorite PPP moment was when a bird flew into one of the open windows and half of Wagger’s Way lost their minds, especially Agnes the Vizsla. To this day, she still watches the windows just in case a bird might fly by!
