I am a current dog-walking volunteer and STAR dog coach at the Animal Rescue League in Pittsburgh. I have served at the ARL for about a year. I love spending my Saturday mornings with the pups; they brighten my day and I hope I do the same for them! Growing up with a menagerie of pets fueled my love for animals. I have previously worked at a veterinary hospital and at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. I am passionate about educating the public on animal welfare and health as well as conservation. I also hope to inform the public about the struggles faced by shelter animals, such as pit bill breed discrimination.
I work as a research technician at Magee-Womens Research Institute for the University of Pittsburgh. I look forward to applying to graduate school this summer in the field of biomedical science. In my free time I enjoy rowing on the Allegheny and running Pittsburgh's many hills! I am excited to combine my love of animals with my love of running while raising money for a good cause!
