I grew up in Abita Springs. It is a place that is very special in my heart. After working in different parts of the country, I could think of no better place to raise a family. I love being close to my family and friends. I enjoy cooking, horseback riding, hiking, and playing the piano. It brings me much joy to be able to help an animal in need and care for them with the dignity they deserve. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be able to bring my love of animals to a community that I cherish.
