How long have you been at PAWS?

I’ve been at PAWS for 4.5 years!

What's your favorite thing about PAWS?

My favorite thing about PAWS is the dogs! I love watching the shut-down ones open up to volunteers during their time at PAWS. I love watching my favorite dogs go home to their new people (and the joy their new people have in taking them home). It really warms the soul.

What's your favorite thing to do at PAWS?

I love all my roles at PAWS so it’s hard to pick just one thing. I love love love adopting a dog out to a good home as an AC; I love spending time with dogs on my care shifts; And I love snuggling puppies that I foster. I’m so blessed to be so involved in this organization. 

What are your favorite non-PAWS hobbies?

My favorite non-PAWS hobby is traveling.

What's your favorite book? 

My all-time favorite book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak but I have a bunch of genre favorites too. I’ll spare you the list.

What's your favorite place to vacation? 

My favorite place to vacation is anywhere with friends but my most recent favorite was Oahu, Hawaii.
