I am originally from Birmingham, AL. I moved to the Gulf Coast about three years ago on the whim of exploration and furthering my career in animal services. In that time I finally found my passion and inspiration in aiding sick and injured pets. This career has not only enriched my life with compassion, but also with knowledge and purpose. The reward of helping not only our furry patients but also their human counterparts has truly left a positive impact on my own persona. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my Siberian Husky (Kayan), hiking and exploring new beaches, watching BBC, listening to the latest horror podcasts, fan girling over my anime series and listening to way too much indie-pop music.
- Mickey Mouse has sung "Happy Birthday" to me as an adult....and yes, I cried!
- I have been to both Montreal and Toronto Canada and have seen Niagara Falls from the Canadian side
- I have seen well over 200 (yes, you read that right) two hundred live music events and concerts

Addie moved to the Gulf Coast from Dothan to attend the University of South Alabama in 2011, and now, home is Daphne with her husband Jordan and precious children that have fur, Kevin and Thea. Before working at PAC, Addie worked in the human side of the medical field. While patients with two legs are great, she loves her job as a veterinary assistant because it’s the best of both worlds. Taking care of four legged fur patients AND belly rubs… It doesn’t get any better than that!
- I will pick dessert and candy over “real food” every time.
- I am a fan of all things murder mystery.
- After bringing home 6 cats to foster, I put it in my wedding vows that I would “ask” first next time. Jordan still loves me even after breaking that one 3 months later…
