I graduated from Medaille college in 2017 with a Bachelors in Biology and a Veterinary Technology degree. I began my career with City Creatures soon after. Growing up in New York City I always had a furry friend by my side. I loved how animals always seemed to know how to make their humans feel better and I wanted to return the favor. Even though I’ve only ever had cats (and one dog!) as a child I knew I wanted to work with all kinds of creatures. I’ve volunteered with several wildlife programs in Buffalo, Ithaca and even South Africa! That’s why I chose to work at City Creatures, where we see all sorts of companion and exotic animals. When I decided to live and work in Buffalo, my boyfriend and I only had one handsome cat named Snow (the man of the house). Not long after we adopted Oreo (the one who loafs around), Singe (the crazy baby brother) and a bearded dragon named Beardy! If I’m not working you can always find me cuddling my cats, reading, drawing, playing video games or enjoying an outdoor adventure.
