I’m in every sense of the word a crazy dog lady (in a non radical way). I have been with TEAM Dog Rescue since its inception in 2012. My primary focus is running the Events team and community outreach to bring awareness to homeless dogs through our #thinkrescue campaign. On the side, I assist with adoptions and help with our social media. My goal over the next year is to drive TEAMs #thinkrescue campaign, create programs that teach children responsible pet ownership and work closer with the community to grow the organization. Outside of TEAM I love to travel and have witnessed firsthand the dire situation of street animals around the world which inspired my efforts to assist with worldwide animal welfare organizations. Prior to joining TEAM, I spent time volunteering with animal groups in Mexico, Central America and Africa as well was a dog walker at Toronto Animal Services.
