I've been with The Grateful Dog for a little over a year now. I felt very lucky when I was hired here as a kennel attendant, since I always loved to spend my time with animals of all sorts. I've been very interested indogs and cats behavior and their body language, so to work here has given me daily opportunities to watch the cats and dogs that come here and learn so muchmore about them. 

I always wanted to work with animals, so I started working at a veterinary clinic in Germany, where I was born and raised. I soon discovered working for a vet just wasn't for me. It was too sad to see animals sick, hurt, or animals that had to be put down. I ended up becoming a cosmetologist which has nothing to do with animals but in my free time I still enjoyed riding horses and going for long walks with a few of my friends and our dogs. We took the dogs out to play with each other for hours at a time. At home we always had dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and turtles. I also had 2 chinchillas at one point. So when I got the job as a kennel attendant at The Grateful Dog I couldn't believe how lucky I am to be able to be around dogs and cats all day, to take care of them, watch them play, see how excited they get when they come in the door and to help keep them safe and healthy while they are here. I love this job and I think, for me, this is the best job I could have asked for!
