I came to FieldHaven when Joy had an emergency shelter in Yuba City, at the start of the Camp Fire. I loved what I was a part of there as a volunteer and then moved to the main shelter. A short time later, I was asked to be part of the team for cat care. I have a German Shepherd and two felines of my own (one is a FieldHaven baby). Prior to FieldHaven, I worked as an EMT for over a decade. An injury kept me from returning, so I chose animals as my second career and very happy I did. My favorite quote is from my dad, “If no one has told you that they love you today, I love you!” I believe we need to tell humans and animals this all the time. I love running distance. I have done one fundraiser to help FieldHaven using my running and I want to do it again.
