Job Title

Operations Manager

What you do at PAWS

I oversee operations for both volunteer, adoptions and admissions for canines and felines.

Your pets at home

Sky (White GSD), Leia (Tan Pittie), Gandalf (DMH with wobbly syndrome), and Sauron (very round tabby).

Favorite thing about PAWS

The investment put into each Individual animal is awe inspiring and has reminded me what animal welfare is capable of aspiring towards. I feel inspired being here!

What is your favorite movie?

Some of my all time favorites are Gladiator and The Last Samurai, but I also love horror movies- so Pan's Labyrinth is up there as well!

If you could meet any fictional character, who would it be?

I would love to meet Obi-Wan Kenobi

Anything else fun or interesting people might be interested in learning about you?

My formal education is in psychology, and when I first started my bachelors I was heart set on becoming a doctor. I ended my graduate study in social work to pursue animal welfare, as I realized that it is my life's passion. I have never felt more at peace since making the decision!
