Fun facts about yourself?
I worked as a squire and a falconer for Medieval Times in Dallas for six years in the past. I have also worked as a licensed massage therapist specialing in sports injuries and medical rehabilitiation. I am also a professional musician and love to play the harmonica and sing.
Do have any pets?
I have one five year old pit terrier mix named Olivia, that I rescued from a friend who was moving back to England and couldn't bring her with him. Due to her breed (pit bull), my friend could not find a no-kill shelter that would take Olivia. Anyway, my friend posted on Facebook a call asking for anyone to take her so she would have a good home. My initial thought was that I would foster her until Olivia would find a home, but within the first two days I realized Olivia was my baby and no one else could have her!
Any interesting facts and insights about yourself?
Before I joined Camp Bow Wow Colleyville, I was working as an Regional Operations Specialist at GrubHub. It was a fine position, but now where near my passion of working with animals, and particularily dogs, so I am very blessed to find this position and am excited to bring my passion and love for animals to Camp Bow Wow Colleyville. Where I really cut my teeth though was at Medieval Times in Dallas where I was a horse squire, training to be a knight. I learned how to ride and care for horses, how to perform stage knight combat, how to joust - all of it. I lost over 50 pounds quickly as the work was very physically demanding, but I loved every minute of it, especially working with all the horses. After a few years, I was offered the position of Lead Falconer. My job was performing with the birds-of-prey in the Medieval Times Shows, but more importantly taking care of all the birds-of-prey like training them, handling their vet care, feeding them, etc. In my time as Falconer, we rebuilt the entire program for the gound up to be a front facing showtime for the organization. We focused on educational and marketing events all over the DFW Metroplex. I volunteered at the Rogers Wildlife Sanctuary in Hutchins, Texas and helped restore the grounds there and also took care of all the birds in the sanctuary. In the Spring of 2016, I moved from Texas to Colorado and worked at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, as a Mule Skinner (yes that's the real title!) My job was to take care of all the mules and horses at the top of Cheyenne Mountain for the Broadmoor Hotel and lead trail rides for the resort guest up to what is considered Cloud Camp at the peak of the mountain.
How many years did you spend in your previous industries?
Collectively, I have over ten years of direct professional animal care experience, from taking care of large animals like horses and mules, to dogs, to birds-of-prey and have been an animal lover and owner my entire life.
What made you decide to enter the Dog Care Services Industry?
My very first job was when I was 16 years old, I was a Kennel Technician for a veterinarians clinic and hospital in Flowood, Mississipi where my family moved after I was born in Texas. So I have always had a passion for working with animals even since I was a kid. I also worked for PetSmart grooming and was also a park supervisor for a independent dog daycare company in Colorado Springs, before I moved home to Texas.
Why did you choose Camp Bow Wow Colleyville?
This incredible opportunity found me through a series of divine circumstances involving my divorce, my ex wife chance meeting my boss, and the rest is as they say "history." Really and truly - my owernship group is fantastic and incredibly supportiive, honest, hard working, and we love to have fun too!
