I am originally from Port Orchard, WA, but moved to Colorado with my parents when I was 10 years old. I have loved living in Colorado and am so thankful for all the opportunities it’s given me (like working at Gentle Touch!). I found my passion for helping animals when I was a child working summers at a small owned family farm in Washington State. There I got to care for a variety of animals, most rescued and previously abused. It was such an honor to work with them and connect with the animals there. I even got to bottle feed a fawn and aid in the birth of a calf! After moving to Colorado I took up Equestrian Jumping for a time being and volunteered at an organization called Spirit Ranch, which holds therapeutic equine events for children in need.

I am currently a mom to one fur baby, my dog D’artagnan. When I’m not working, I’m often snuggled up on the couch with him reading a book or watching our favorite shows. I am so excited to further my passion for animal care at Gentle Touch! Moreover, I look forward to meeting you and your pet!
