Kennel Assistant

'Woman and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.' - Robert A. Heinlein

Emma became part of our team in 2018 because she loves caring for the animals in our community. She is inspired by animals which is why she wanted to work with them. It keeps her going to know that her and her colleagues are responsible for keeping the furry, scaly and feathery creatures of this earth thriving and happy. 

She graduated from Grand Haven High School in 2016 and is enrolled in the Grand Valley State University pre-veterinary medicine program from which she will graduate from in 2020 and continue on to veterinary school. Despite loving animals her whole life, she didn’t become seriously interested in working with animals until the summer after her senior year of high school.

In Emma's spare time she loves to go swimming, sail (she's on the Grand Valley State University Club Sailing Team) and spend time with her lovely boyfriend named Stefano. Emma has three cats (Scooter, Nix and Maggie) and one rabbit (Vito).
