With Annie’s first words being “Bow Wow”, it was no surprise she chose a career working with animals.  She’s had the pleasure of having many different species in her life from dogs and cats to fish, reptiles and pocket pets. 

Prior to enrolling in Stautzenberger College in January, 2016 to pursue her Associates in Animal Welfare Management degree, she was the GM/Partner at an upscale Mexican restaurant for six years, as well as worked in the fields of real estate and law.  When she graduates, she will continue her career in the animal industry to help as many animals as she can. 

Annie currently lives in the Cleveland area with her beagle, Mina, and her eel, Renfield, and her plecostomus, Kanye, who live in a 55-gallon fish tank.  Annie also enjoys helping her parents at their farm in Pennsylvania where there is an ever-growing population of animals. While at the farm she enjoys going mudding in the pasture on the family 4-wheelers.
