Santanna Vega
Facility Manager

I joined the Wags & Wiggles team at the beginning of 2012 after looking to switch fields from rescue work.  I immediately fell in love with Wags based on their candor and openness to all dogs and their families, an openness to meet and assess each dog personally and professionally.

I initially started in the play area and quickly moved up to supervisor.  I then moved into the front office after expressing my desire to get to know the parents of the dogs I had grown to love so much.

I officially joined the management team in 2015 after my husband and I welcomed our daughter.  Most recently I do more behind the scenes work with staff relations and staff training.  In addition to one stellar human child, I also have 3 fur kiddos: Brantley, Raleigh and Valor; all of whom I thank daily for the endless supply of laughs.  When I'm not at Wags, my hubby and I are always taking the family on new adventures.

I was born and raised in Pismo Beach and then moved to southern California back in 2004.  I studied Kinesiology at Cal State Fullerton.  I’ve always been into fitness and sports and I have served in the Army Reserves.

I have always loved dogs as a kid, but my love for them grew more than ever as an adult.  I have three dogs: two 13-year-old Cocker Spaniels named Jenny and Julie, and one 5-year-old Lab mix named Jackson.  While I love all dogs, I have a special spot in my heart for the Spaniel family.

I joined the Wags & Wiggles team in the summer of 2015.  I started out on the play floor and rotated between our Big Dog and Small Dog rooms.  I eventually became part of the maintenance team.  Now, I work in the front office as one of the managers.

When I am not at Wags, I love to hike, go to the beach, and take long drives with my dogs.  They go everywhere with me and are my rocks!  I also love to listen to a variety of music and play guitar.  If I am not at home, I’m most likely at the gym.
