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.
