Role at PAWS

I am a Kennel Assistant. I make sure the dogs have a clean and cozy place to stay between walks.

Time with PAWS

5 months as volunteer, 2 weeks as kennel assistant

Your pets at home

None at the moment, but I hope to bring my 2 cats, Zola and Maalik from Brazil next year.

Thing most proud of about time at PAWS?

Being offered this position :)

Favorite thing about PAWS

The dogs, of course. But knowing that I am helping make their stay at the shelter as comfortable and fun as possible until they find their forever family is very rewarding.

What you can usually be found doing outside of work?

When I'm not at PAWS I can be found riding my bike or drinking a craft beer, often both at once.

What is your perfect vacation?

My (very distant) dream vacation would be to complete the Comrades Ultramarathon that takes place every year in South Africa.

Favorite book

Long Walk to Freedom, by Nelson Mandela

Favorite movie 

Imitation game

If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?

Chihiro, from Spirited Away

What's the first concert you attended?

I have never been to one, but one day I'll attend an Iron Maiden concert.

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

I'm a biologist and I make the best Nutella cake in the world.
