Who's Who at the Rescue

I grew up in Wisconsin on the shores of Lake Michigan in a household with dogs and was soon convinced that animals are superior to people in almost every way. After graduating from Lawrence University with a degree in Government, I worked briefly on Capitol Hill and then joined the Foreign Service. During my time overseas with the Department of State, I lived in Ecuador, Denmark, Sweden, Sri Lanka, and Switzerland. I adopted my first cat after returning to the U.S. and haven't been without a furry companion since.

After leaving the Foreign Service, my family chose Fort Collins as our permanent home and moved here in 2002. I started working in Poudre School District and volunteering at a sanctuary for wolf dogs. I retired from PSD in 2013, but I have continued working in the school district as a volunteer.

I began volunteering with FCCRSNC in April 2016 and soon was very impressed with the dedication and professionalism of the staff and volunteers. I am currently volunteering as a medical assistant in the shelter and the clinic. Serving on FCCRSNC's Board of Directors was the logical next step in my commitment to the animals served by this wonderful organization.
