When did you start working at Tiny Tails to You?

July 2019

Who is your favorite Tiny Tails animal, and why?

As a part-time animal caretaker here, I love ALL of our animals! There are probably two top contenders: our baby hedgehog, Hogg, because he’s so small and sweet, or Moonpie, our special little hen.

Favorite non-Tiny Tails animal?

I am a huge bird person. I love all birds, and even have three cockatiels at home. It’s neat to have pets that can talk to you and fly around your house!

Do you have a favorite memory from an event?

One time at an office party, a woman cried because the bunny she was holding was SO CUTE. They were happy tears!

What is your favorite thing about working for Tiny Tails to You?

I really enjoy working with people who love animals and love Austin. Our company is like a little family.

Where are you from? How long have you lived in Austin?

I’m from the Pacific Northwest, specifically northern Idaho. I’ve lived here for one year now.

Where is your favorite place in Austin, and why?

Bull Creek. There are endless little spots to relax, hike, swim, and let fish nibble your toes if you sit still enough. As an Idahoan, I would swim there year-round if I could.

What is something you are really passionate about right now?

I love young kids! I have always really cared for little ones and making sure they know how special and important they are. We grown-ups have a lot to learn from them.

What do you do outside of working at Tiny Tails to You (hobbies, other work, etc…)?

•My husband and I are really big into DIY projects around our home. I also enjoy art, cooking, gardening, and spending time with my 5 pets!
