Growing up, I had always loved spending time with animals. I had always had cats or fish, but was never blessed with a dog! Ever since, I have set out to spend as much time with dogs as possible! After coming to Iowa City for school in 2016, I started volunteering at the local animal shelter and fell I love with the pups there. While the shelter only had a couple pups at a time, I wanted to get to know more dogs!

I started working at Pooch Palace in 2018 and never looked back. I graduated nursing school in 2020 and still love getting some time with the pups staying at the Palace each week. I absolutely love getting to know each pup and their unique personality. It is a joy coming to work and getting to spend time with the dogs having a vacation while their people are on vacation too!
