Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest?

Mardi Gras!

Mountains or ocean?

Both? I like a balanced life.

When did you know you wanted to work with animals?

I adopted my sweet pup Loretta Lynn in 2015 – I had been bartending at the time but after bringing her into my life and seeing the amazing work that can be done to help help animals and communities in need I decided to make a career change. I started at the shelter I adopted Loretta from and when I moved to NoLa I was fortunate enough to make my way to CCV!

Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me..

sleeping in followed by a long walk with my pup, and coffee and gardening while listening to podcasts during the day.

If you could write your own job title that best describes what you do here, what would it be?

I wear a variety of hats at CCV – I do our social media, event planning and I get to coordinate outreach between CCV and communities and animals in need! Dream job!
