Joined the ACOC team in May 2019
Favorite thing or most inspiring part of position at ACOC:
Working with animals and the humans that love them. I enjoy being part of something that contributes to the health and well being of animals. It gives me purpose and personal fulfillment.
I love talking to clients about...
All different breeds and types of animals including cats, dogs, fish, reptiles (snakes specifically) etc. Rescue and adoption-I am passionate about bully breeds how they are still misunderstood.
I have a BS in Geology from Sonoma State University in northern California. I worked in industry (6 years) and as a science teacher (16 years) before changing careers to work in the animal care field. I love to travel to Kauai'i with my husband David. We were married on a beach there in 1998. I am both a cat and dog person...and I have snakes and fish.
If I wasn't so darned good at my job, I'd probably be.....
A stay at home pet mom or living on a beach in Kauai'i.
If I were a superhero, my superpower would be....
If I were an animal, I would be a....
A polydactyl Manx cat named Yeti. Yeti was my sweet girl from 1995-2012. She was like me as a cat-cautious and guarded, but once you got to know her was to love her. And she had the coolest thumbs!!!
What is your favorite ACOC core value and why?
Growth. Having the opportunity to learn and evolve is important to me.
