Vanessa went to Fairmont State University to pursue her passion in art. While she spent 8 years as a screen printer and graphic designer, she later decided that animal care was her passion and began working for us in 2017. She still continues her art on the side making amazing projects for her friends and family. Her tribe of animals includes 3 dogs (Gizmo, Ponyo, and Kenya), 4 cats (Boobie, Tuija, Lerona, and Jamal), and 2 gerbils (Leroy and Buzz). When she makes time for herself she enjoys doing wilderness exploring, listening to live music, hoarding plants, and creating an atmosphere of love and laughter wherever she goes.
