Facility Manager - HR
I became an employee here at Wags and Wiggles back in November of 2013. I have always had a passion for animals, and had worked with them in the past, so naturally I was very excited to be a part of the team! I currently own a 12-year-old Pit Mix named Layce that I love and adore. I often refer to her as my four-legged child. While I have a love for any breed, I hold a special place in my heart for all bully breeds, and hope to add a French Bulldog to my pack soon!
I started as a daycare attendant and from there moved into the kitchen. Shortly after that, I began working in the front office and became one of the facility managers. After being part of the management team, I was given the opportunity to learn more about human resources and business management. I now ensure the well-being of all members of the Wags & Wiggles team. I also facilitate any employee onboarding and scheduling for our RSM location. I am very fortunate to work with such a wonderful group of people, and dogs of course, and to have a job that I love!
EMAIL DANIIn January of 2014, I joined the Wags and Wiggles team. I started working as a daycare attendant, then in the kitchen, and soon I was promoted to Management! I've always had a love for animals, so being able to work with dogs every day is a dream come true for me. I have a Retriever/Shepherd mix named Abbey Road who loves coming to work as much as I do!
I have been with the Wags and Wiggles team since April 2016. I was initially drawn to Wags and Wiggles because I absolutely LOVE animals. I started working in both daycare and the office, and eventually I was cross trained to work in the kitchen and as an overnight attendant.
I have two 6-year-old Siberian huskies named Malachi and Goliath and an Italian Mastiff named Silas. I was recently promoted to an assistant manager and could not be happier because I get to spend more time in the office speaking with all of our wonderful clients!
Being a part of the Wags team is an amazing learning experience for all dog lovers. I love being able to see how the dogs grow and learn from the staff and each other. Ensuring clients that their dogs are in capable, loving hands is very gratifying to me.
I began working at Wags in May of 2016. The job was so appealing to me because of my knowledge and love for dogs! I started out working on the play floor and in the kitchen. I eventually became part of the office staff and am now a facility manager. You may also see me behind the camera on holiday picture day!
I am currently attending Saddleback College and I will be graduating with an AA in Photography in 2020. I plan on continuing my education by getting a degree in business or marketing to help further my knowledge and career. I have two Staffies named Lexi and Lola, and a Schnorgi named Bean. I am a very proud dog mom and I love to spoil my fur babies whenever I get the chance!
I became a team member of Wags and Wiggles in November 2014. I fell in love with the little ones and senior citizens and mainly worked with them. After about a year, I moved into the office and eventually became an assistant manager.
I love the people I work with and I love how each day always has something new and exciting to offer. I am so grateful that I get to work with dogs every day! My first dog was a Maltese and that breed will always have a soft spot in my heart.
In August 2005 I joined the Wags & Wiggles family. I was initially drawn to Wags & Wiggles by my love and passion for working with animals. I have enjoyed watching many of the dogs grow from happy puppies to happy adult dogs, but also get great satisfaction seeing troubled dogs graduate the training program.
I am proud to know I have helped make a difference with these dogs as I see the transformation first-hand. I feel the most satisfaction from seeing rescue dogs come in and get adopted into their forever homes. I am a passionate rescuer, having adopted Cubby, a Australian shepherd and Cola an Australian shepherd/cattle dog mix. I also have another dog I adore, Mason, a (sometimes unruly) Jack Russell Terrier.
I am currently the Operations Manager at RSM, and I help ensure day-to-day life on the play floor run smoothly and that all of the special requests are handled. I assist in the front office and kitchen whenever needed!
Digital Communications Director
I joined the Wags & Wiggles team in May 2016. I had just graduated from Humboldt State University and I was looking for a summer job before starting an internship with Disney World that fall. I loved working here so much that I just had to come back after my internship. My "temporary" summer job turned into my long-term career!
As Digital Communications Director, I oversee our social media pages, our website, our online store, our blog, our newsletters, and our ongoing online classroom project. I also handle boarding quotes, design flyers and brochures, attend marketing events, and assist whenever needed in the front office or in our Small Dog room. I truly love coming to work and am so grateful to be part of such an amazing team! There's nothing more rewarding than working with dogs.
I am a proud dog mom to a 5-year-old Cavalier King Charles named Toby. I am obsessed with Cavaliers and also have a soft spot for Chihuahuas, Spaniel mixes, Pugs, and Black Labs!
