I currently own 2 Maine coon cats name Maynard and Chino. I grew up with German Shepard and Benji type dog. My favorite part about working at BowWow Fun Towne is the time I spend with a lot of really sweet dogs and the interaction with all breeds of dogs. When not at work, I enjoy cooking, building things and I’ve recently found a love of baking. I make wicked cheesecake! Dogs have taught me many things…..that animals are far better than people, that the most important thing in any relations is trust without it you have nothing and that there’s nothing better than the smile of a pit bull. My goals in life is to keep it simple. If I can find a house with a decent yard, some privacy, a few pit bulls and avoid any drama, I say that’s about all I’ll need to feel happy and complete…. ALL BOXES CHECKED

I recently move to Pacific Northwest from Ohio due to my partner’s job opportunity. Animals have been my interest ever since I could remember. While in third grade, I shadowed at a vet clinic and from that time forward, I wanted to work with animals. I had a part time job working at a dog day care while I attended Vet Tech Institute in Pittsburg, I fell in love day care aspect and decided that this was my path of animal care. My favorite part about working at BowWow Fun Towne is the dogs of course. I also love the aspect of meeting the owner’s and seeing the connections they have with their best friends. When I am not at work, I love to draw, cosplay, and collect comic books as well as game! I’m also super into animas and their biology and psychology. Dogs have taught me no matter how “broken” or “shattered” they still show unconditional love. I strive to live by showing love and kindness to all things and I think dogs are treat teachers. My goal to own my own Elderly Hound Rescue with my beautiful partner.

Currently, I have a German Shepherd name Scarlett. I adopted Scarlett early 2020 and training her has been exciting and challenging. As a young child, I grew up with our family Labradors, Max and Moose. I have also dog sat many time for family and friends. My dogs have taught me that life is short so you should live it well. I have worked since Aug 2018 and my favorite part of about working at BowWow Fun Towne is all the cute dogs. I get to meet and spend my day with them. During my spare time, I watch Netflix, play video games and programming. Since computer science and programming is my interest, my goal is to be a programmer for a video game company.

I have grown up with various animals. I’ve raised horse, rode them in shows and trails. I currently have a chocolate Lab name Diesel. My experience with dogs is owning many breads, all who have and had a special place in my heart. I have dog sat for many of my housecleaning clients for over 20 years. I trained Diesel to be a hunter and he is very successful bird dog. My favorite part about working at BowWow Fun Towne is the special time with the overnight fur babies and the love that we share. I’m an outdoor girl so when I’m not at work, I go fishing, hunting, camping and I also love to crochet and do craft projects. Dogs have given me unconditional love, live in the present, enjoy each moment as it comes and let go of the bad and remember the joy. My goal to have a cabin in the woods to spend all my love and time with my partner, 2 sons, daughter-in-law and my 4 grandchildren.
