Nick Lippincott, senior strategist

In this position he worked as 1 of only 4 officers investigating cases of animal cruelty within the District of Columbia. He then moved into the role of Bite Investigator with D.C. Animal Care and Control, investigating bites as well as recommending and enforcing Dangerous Dog Legislation within the District. In 2015, Nick returned to Orange County Animal Services as a Senior Animal Services Officer within the field division and then as the Special Programs and Training Officer for the Division.
