I love my job because it is so much fun. I always have something to say. I like to give advice to people and enjoy finding relationship & self-improvement stories to share with folks. I prefer to look at the bright side. I also believe that community service is a great gift that should be given by everyone and especially anyone willing to give of their time. I'm a huge dog lover and German Shepherds are my favorite. I visit our local animal shelter often and take photos for blogs to help find homes for the homeless pets. If you have lost a pet I can put a photo and description on our website with your contact information. Just send me an email! Please remember to spay and neuter your pets and, super important, get them microchipped.
