I have lived in Maine my whole life. This is my first job working with dogs! I work full time here at Uncommon Dog learning more about the pet care business!
I moved to Maine to earn my bachelors in psychology. I've worked with dogs my whole life, and had my own dog walking/dogsitting business in Massachusetts.

She loves animals and has always loved to rescue pets ever since she was a kid. She current 3 rescues are a dog Sammy, a cat Milo, and a hedgehog named Ellie.
I will be a certified dog trainer in October, and I'm currently enrolled at Unity College to receive my bachelors degree in Animal Behavior. Working with dogs in every way I can to educate myself fully before opening my own dog rescue. Excited for the opportunity to grow here at Uncommon Dogs!
I have lived in Maine my whole life and I love animals and all things nature. Animals, especially dogs and cats, have always been my passion for as long as I can remember and I have dedicated my life to their care. I love learning about them in all fields and am always looking for ways to impove the lives of the pets in my care. I currently share my home with 13 rescue animals. 8 dogs, 3 cats and 2 chinchillas and my world absolutely revolves around them. I have worked in the dog daycare field for over 10 years so far with another 5 years specializing in dog and cat nutrition, and have earned several certifications in both fields. I look forward to continuing growing my knowledge and experience in the animal care field and enriching the lives of as many animals as I can along the way.
I am excited to be coming back and can't wait to help Uncommon Dog grow to what I know it can be. For those who don't know me, I have worked in the animal field for 8+ years. Most of those years were in the daycare setting, while the rest has been in animal nutrition. As for my own crew, we currently have two dogs (Raven and Phoenix), one chinchilla (Tobin), one bearded dragon (Smeagol), and two snakes (Ekans and Asmodeus). I look forward to meeting and caring for your fur babies.
