I was born in Rockville, Maryland, but spent a number of years living in Grand Turk, Turks and Caicos, a small island in the West Indies, where my parents are originally from. Growing up in the Caribbean is where my love of animals first began. Although it wasn’t common for people to have cats and dogs as domestic animals, I remember having a desire to take care of them and to always feed and nurture them. This has always been a passion of mine.
I joined the Friendship team in 2011 and since then my love and animals has only blossomed. I have held several roles in time here at Friendship, from Client Care Technician, Veterinary Assistant, Internal Medicine Coordinator, and now Specialty Services Supervisor for the past three years. In my free time, I like to spend time with my family and with my fur babies, Zapphara, my 12 year old cat, and Suki, my 10 year old Shih Tzu.
