I grew up on a farm in upstate NY and have been rescuing animals in need for as long as I can remember (cats, dogs, an orphaned squirrel, injured rabbits, a loon wrapped in fishing line… the list goes on). My childhood dream was to become a Veterinarian and I started down that path until I actually earned my undergraduate degree. At that point, it made good common sense to bail on my aspirations, move to Virginia and jump into the corporate workforce.
After more than a decade at a desk job, however, I realized it was time for a lifestyle change so I officially retired from the rat race. I pursued a job with Canine Adventure because I admire the work they do and knew it would be a rewarding and fun experience. For me, spending time outside, being active, and building relationships with new 4-legged friends is the ultimate dream job!
While I’m not hiking/ running/ playing with my canine buddies, I’m hiking/ running/ playing with my kids (of the 2-legged variety), gardening (through sheer persistence to compensate for my lack of green thumb), volunteering with animal rescue groups, and always trying to learn something new (at the moment, it’s Mycology and coding).
I know first-hand how hard it can be to make sure your pets are getting the exercise, stimulation or break they crave during the long work week. I’m genuinely thrilled to be able to provide that service for you.
