Support Staff

I graduated from Cumberland Valley High school in 2015 and I am currently taking online classes to become a Veterinary Technician. I have lived in this area my entire life. I grew up next to my grandfather’s farm in Boiling Springs so my love for animals started at an early age. Right now I have two dogs; an 11 year old Redbone Coonhound named Lily and a 3 year old Golden Retriever, German Sheppard mix named Ben. Animals are my main passion but I also love to bake. I have a real sweet tooth for cookies, cupcakes, brownies, basically anything stuffed full with sugar. In my free time I enjoy playing with my dogs, doing crafts, eating ice cream and watching The Walking Dead.
