Start date: August 2010

What is your background?
I have had a lifelong passion for animals, growing up riding and showing horses at a hunter/jumper farm and always having numerous pets. While attending Ohio University, I worked at an equine rescue both training adult horses and caring for orphan foals. After graduating from O.U. in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Managerial Communications and a minor in Equine Studies, I started my career as a vet tech working for both equine and small animal veterinarians.

Do you have any pets currently?
I have two rescues, Dubs (Boxer) and Gracie (Miniature Dachshund).

What is your favorite pet-related memory?
Our cross-country road trip!! Dubs and I drove from Cleveland, OH to Denver, CO for our big move last year. We took our time and stopped to camp in some amazing places. We made some fantastic memories on that trip!

What’s your favorite thing about Embrace?
I work with some pretty amazing folks. We are a close knit family that really believes in the company and what we do. I am one of the lucky ones to be able to say I absolutely love my job!

What do you like to do in your free time?
Anything outdoors! Hiking, camping, snowboarding, fishing and of course riding horses!.

What is your favorite quote?
“If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough” – Unknown

Anything else we should know about you?
I am a HUGE music fan. It’s been part of my life since I can remember (I am, after all, named after the Allman Brothers song!) I love going to shows and discovering new bands to listen to.
