I’ve always loved animals and when I got my first dog I knew I wanted my career to have something to do with animals. I decided Coyne was a great start because I’m currently getting my dog training certification and knew that I would be able to interact with and learn their behavioral ways and body language working in kennels. I love it and take pride in the way I impact them.
If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be, and why?
A ferret. I’ve ALWAYS wanted one but never really had the time or environment for them yet.
Do you currently have any pets? What are their names and what is your favorite thing about them?
Yes, I have a dog named Nirvana, 4 cats named Kitty, Indica, Bentley, and Nikko, and a turtle named Otis.
What do you find most rewarding about working with animals?
Just seeing them get so excited when they see you and then obviously when you get to know them more, they get comfortable with you and will cuddle with you in their kennels and that’s probably the most rewarding to me.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?
I go to the beach pretty often with my dog, or do something with my niece.
