Favorite thing about PAWS 

My favorite thing about PAWs is the community involved with it. I love how dedicated and loving the volunteers and staff are to these animals. It really warms my heart to go to work everyday and see so many people using their free time to ensure these animals are happy and healthy.  

What you can usually be found doing outside of work?

I am a fourth year student at Penn State so I love walking around campus and downtown State College. I also love to read, play video games, hike, and hang out with my friends.   

Anything else fun or interesting people might be interested in learning about you?

Before working at PAWS I was a dog person, but now I am a huge cat person and I want to own many cats in my future :)
