Karen

Kennel Attendant

Karen's Bio
Karen grew up in rural eastern Washington, helping neighbors with their dogs, goats, cows, and horses. After living in Belgium for a year as an exchange student, she went to WWU and graduated with a degree in English-Creative Writing. Considering the available career opportunities within that field, she eventually found a calling in professional pet care. Her passions include cradling her rescue dog (Snoot) like a human child, crocheting swimwear, and coming up with obnoxious dad jokes. Her favorite part about working with animals is the moment she earns the trust of a shy, new friend.
