Furry Friends: I have a couple of parakeets, and an African Grey parrot, named Baby Bird. Baby Bird is 20 years old, and just laid her first egg! She created a dome of newspapers on the bottom of the cage, and hung out there for a couple of days. Next thing I know, she is sitting on an egg! And she said to me, "What are you doing?"

Passions: I jam out to Folk music. I worked at a large boarding kennel for 10 years, and also volunteered for a pet-therapy group, and Pug Rescue. I've raised 4 wonderful children, and have 4 grandchildren.

Spirit Animal: An elephant.

Furry Friends: I have a Pug named Nucky, an orange and white Tabby named Polly and a black cat named Jaxx. Nucky has mind of his own but is very obedient. In August he received his CGC title and I am very proud of his hard work getting there.

Education Interests: I am a Certified Canine Trainer and Behavior Specialist. I enjoy what I do because I have fun helping dog owners and families achieve their goals, strengthen the bond with their dog through training and walking and improve the owner and dog’s quality of life. I am pet first aid certified and I am also an Affiliate Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals. I also like to donate my time to rescues when I can. Currently I signed on to train adopted Staffies (Pit Bulls) at Luv-A-Bull rescue.

Passions: I enjoy hanging out with my dog at the park and teaching him new tricks. You can also find me running around Lady Bird Lake or Mueller Park or just hanging around the house doing some yard work.

Spirit Animal: My spirit animal is a Sloth. There's a long story behind that.

Furry Friends: I have one beautiful pet as of now and his name is Pickles! He is a 3 year old orange tabby who can be very sweet but also change on a dime and become a little crazy. You have to earn his love, as you do with most cats, but it's well-worth anyone's time.

Education Interests: I'm currently pursuing a degree in Environmental Science.

Passions: "Creating" is my passion. My mind is constantly putting colors & images together. My hobbies include painting, exploring, and traveling when time allows it.

Passions: I grew up with hiking, camping, and white water rafting being a huge part of my life. My mother was a class 5 whitewater raft guide in California, and we spent most of our weekends outdoors. I love to observe wildlife. I also love the ocean, and I find deep-sea creatures fascinating.

Furry Friends: I'm the proud owner of two little doggies. Asia, my three year old shihtzu, has a cute little snaggle tooth and will do just about anything for attention and Wallace, my 11 year old wiener dog, is blind but that doesn't keep him down. Wallace was adopted this year of APA! They're the best lil nuggets around.

Education Interests: I'm currently a staff member at Austin Pets Alive! I've worked in various other animal jobs and my hope is to continue working alongside dogs for the rest of my life. Animal shelter jobs aren't easy but they're so worth it.

Passions: I love any excuse to crafty, I'm addicted to concerts and music festivals and I love spending days volunteering at various animal shelters in the Austin area.

Spirit Animal: My spirit animal would either be a dog for obvious reasons or a giraffe because I'm almost over 6 feet tall!
