I was born in Raleigh and raised in Cary NC, I moved here with the military and decided to stay in the area and attend school. I have previous experience working in a veterinary office, volunteering with local animal shelters and fostering dogs. I love animals because they have such unconditional love and chose Atlantic because of the welcoming staff and the positive environment. I think some of my strengths come from becoming independent and having the motivation to push myself to do what is best for me and making a good future for myself. I currently have a German Shepard named Athena who I adore. She loves long walks and playing fetch. I am currently in school to pursue my veterinary technician degree.
