The road to my career working with animals started at the age of 13, when I moved from my home state of Texas to Louisiana to give my mom a hand at the Fair Grounds race track. While working alongside beautiful thoroughbreds, I then knew that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since then, my family and I have had every pet from cats and dogs, to reptiles, fish, turtles, tarantulas, and parrots. I’ve worked and volunteered with raccoons, possums, turtles as well as dogs and cats. I love animals, and treat every pet as my own. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my rescue dog Barkley, and watching sports.
