Growing up as an only child, I was never truly alone! I grew up with three dogs, and they were not only my best friends but also like siblings to me. My deep love for dogs stems from the personal understanding that dogs are important members of the family. My parents liked to travel a lot when I was growing up, so I fully realize the trust a family puts in a facility to take care of their fur babies. As a longtime dog owner, I promise the furriest members of your family will be treated as royalty at the Pooch Palace, just as they are at home!

In any opportunity, my greatest passion in life is serving and helping others. In effort to pursue that passion, I’m currently studying Speech and Hearing Sciences at the University of Iowa with aspirations to be a speech-language pathologist. Beyond school, I’ve found the Pooch Palace to be an incredibly meaningful and special place to apply my passion of serving others (furry or not)! I look forward to meeting your best friends and making them feel safe, comfortable, and loved while you are away!
