Though I am a transplant from Houston, TX, my four years in Austin have been some of the best of my life. I have grown to not only love this city, but I rediscovered my love for animals and natural life here. I live here with two old beagles named Rusty and Louie and though I love them with all my heart, I miss my two cats, Princess and Pounce, who I had to leave in my hometown when I moved away to college. While in Austin, I have volunteered with Austin Pets Alive! walking dogs and in the cat sanctuary. My time here has allowed me to discover my passion for working with animals, which makes me so excited to work with Walk! ATX, and, of course, to care for your fur babies! I treat each animal as I would my own: with love, patience, and a positive attitude. I have a communication degree from St. Edward’s University, so when I’m not walking dogs, you can find me writing or catching up on the news. Some of my other hobbies include hiking the greenbelt, cooking, listening to podcasts, scouring Austin for the best vegan food I can find, and always looking for my next big adventure.
