The majority of my professional experience was in corporate HR. After having my first child I realized that life is about doing things that make you happy and give you purpose and that is when I found my home away from home at Coyne! I have always loved animals and advocated for their safety so being able to be a part of the day-to-day trouble shooting and hiring at Coyne truly is a dream come true.

If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?

If I could have any animal as a pet I would choose a dolphin! They are beautiful, intelligent, fun, and kind. 

Do you currently have any pets? What type and what are their names?

I currently have a Norwegian Forest Cat named Thor. My favorite thing about him is his ability to sense when I am having a bad day and comfort me. I also love how fluffy and cuddly he is!

What is your favorite thing about working with animals?

I have always loved and advocated for animals. They are kind, non-judgemental, and pure. Animals act in a way of survival without ulterior motives. Animals need us to be their voice and keep them safe from harmful humans.
