Location: Trumbull, CT

Fondest memory: I had purchased VIP passes in addition to tickets to meet and see my fav band, Eve6, in New Haven, CT back in 2009 with a cousin and some friends. As luck would have it, I had just started a new job in White Plains, NY and I felt it was too soon to request skipping out early. With that, I would miss the band’s meet and greet- whomp. On my commute home, my cousin called. I picked up and it wasn’t her- it was Max, the lead singer. Max was my fav- crushed on him hard as a teenager. Really though, aside from his good looks, I enjoyed his writing style and creativity with words. So I was just beside myself that day- complete awe-struck and just so incredibly happy that my cousin flawlessly made that happen and he was down to do it. Couldn’t tell ya what we talked about now though haha.
Wildest dream: To have the means and resources to open and maintain a retirement home for senior dogs…and to chase a tornado
Proudest moment: Probably every time I refuse a donut
Biggest Challenge: Myself. I am admittedly extremely critical and hard on myself
Why Looking Glass Animal Rescue: Simply put, LGAR’s mission, vision and values were very much aligned with my own. After submitting my application to foster, I jumped on a call with Jody and felt like I was talking to my soul sister. Our thoughts and views around animal welfare and rescue were very much alike. I felt her passion and compassion, and that of all others affiliated with LGAR on that one call. I just knew this is where I needed to be. And it’s been a blessing- I am a part of a zealous group of advocates, have made new friends, and best of all, have been given the freedom to be impactive where I can.
