Holly has been an animal lover throughout her entire life. Growing up she had pet dogs, cats, snakes, lizards, turtles, and even a praying mantis! Being an only child the connection with her animals was always strong. As she grew she saw the opportunity to turn her passion into a career and pursued a degree in Animal Science. Holly graduated from Illinois State University and had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of animals throughout her education.
Holly has worked as a veterinary assistant where she spent a lot of time working with pets and applying her knowledge from her classes. She also spent a great deal of her time learning to catch birds, band adults and their nestlings, take measurements, and help out the biology department graduate students on their research projects. Holly also worked as an Animal Care Technician working with mice, opossums, and pigs, monitoring their daily health and ensured a comfortable living environment. Holly loves helping families and dogs to live happily and comfortably together. You can always find her with a smile on her face, happy to help! Holly enjoys eating, working out, going to concerts, and spending time outside or hiking during her free time.
