What is your experience, including any schooling? I started horseback riding at the age of 6. At 9 years old I started doing 4-H with horses, dogs, and rabbits until I was 18. After that I started teaching group lessons to kids at the barn. I’m currently knocking out classes to apply for the vet tech program.

What types of pets do you have at home and what are their names? Tucker (give me kisses) – Quarter Horse, Cochise – Golden Retriever, Beau – American Staffy, Connor – Tortise, Apache – Domestic Short Hair Cat

Why did you decide to work in the pet industry? Animals have always been a huge influence on my life, I couldn’t see myself doing anything else.

What do you like to do in your free time? I exercise horses for a family. I enjoy hiking, kayaking, anything out in nature.

If you could be any animal, which would you be? A horse – A wise and spiritual animal

What are you passionate about? My dreams, goals, family, animals and work.

What is your secret talent? Being able to stand up and flip off of my horse. Trust is everything.

Anything else you would like to mention? Thank you for giving me the opportunity to love your animals and keep them company while you’re away!
