I found my way to Best Friends by way of a sata (Puerto Rican word for street dog) named Rio. Finding her on the streets of San Juan set in motion the first domino on the course that ultimately led me to Best Friends. I initially volunteered virtually for the old network, and later visited and volunteered at the Sanctuary. I then decided to pursue work in Dogtown. Once hired, I moved to Kanab and worked as a caregiver and later as a team lead for four years total. Now, working with the Best Friends Network, I am able to help animals exponentially. My partner Scott and I share our Colorado mountain home with five dogs who are referred to as the three “pointy-eared” ones and the two “floppy-eared” ones.
