Though I’ve only been working at OMD for less than a month, I have a few years of kennel/ daycare experience from other facilities. I went to school for furniture design but found myself wanting to work with animals. Like people, dogs have their own personalities and quirks and I enjoy getting to know each dog in a safe and clean environment where they can socialize and play together. I find it rewarding to see a shy or anxious dog become more confident over time. When I’m not working I like to play with my two dogs, Elmer and Bella Rose, or work on an art project.
