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.
