“I have been involved with animal rescue since I was 4 years old. I majored in animal sciences at PSU and am currently Co-executive Director at Animal Rescue, Inc. This is a dream come true for me.

Helping both people and animals through this program is the greatest, most meaningful thing I can imagine and perfectly aligns with my own code of ethics. I'm thrilled to be a part of this mission.”
