Get to Know Our Team
Bucktown Operations Lead
I have had a love for dogs my entire life, and that passion has only grown throughout the years. I want to make an impact on the lives of owners and their dogs by showing compassion.
When I’m not working, I spend my time training my two greyhounds. Dog training is something I have had an interest in from childhood and have finally started putting the skills I have to use. Another thing I do in my spare time is volunteer with the rescue Greyhounds Only.
If I could be any dog breed, it would have to be a Pharaoh Hound. This is a breed of dog I have dreamed of owning my entire life, and also, my personality traits are fairly similar.
Noble Square Operations Lead
My entire life I have always owned multiple dogs at one time. Most of my dogs have been rescues that have brought me a lot of joy and happiness. Between making regular food, blanket and newspaper donations to local dog shelters and currently the happy owner of four rescues, I knew I wanted to work with dogs. They are truly awesome!
Outside of work, I love live music, anything outdoors and hanging with my dogs.
If I could be any breed of dog, I would be a Cane Corso. I truly feel they are gentle giants that are often misunderstood because of their looks and size.
Lead Staff Trainer
Since I was a little girl, I have always loved dogs and always will. One reason is because dogs love you unconditionally, no matter what mood you are in, they always come back to you. On top of everything amazing they do, they always somehow find a way to make our lives better.
Something I’ve always been big on is family time, so when I’m not at work, I’m usually catching up and spending time with them and my pets.
If I could choose to be any dog breed, I would be a Pitbull because they are misunderstood, so I would like to show people that that’s not how Pitties are. Instead, they are just like any other breed, affectionate, gentle, and very loving.
Social Media Manager
I’ve always been interested in animals! Originally, I just needed a job to pay for my horses, and I thought doggie daycare would be a fun choice! I never thought that being in the industry would become a passion of mine!
Outside of work, I ride, train, and compete on morgan horses. I also like hanging out with my two dogs, my horse, my friends, and my family. My other passion is photography, which I do in my spare time. I’ve always had an interest in capturing special moments and making short videos with my friends and animals!
If I could be a breed of dog, it’s going to be a mutt! I already feel like a mash-up of a bunch of different experiences and lifestyles, so I resonate with the mixed breed pups a lot!
Very early on, I realized I wanted to work with animals. My introduction into the pet industry was as a dog walker where I quickly learned to vicariously live through my client’s pups since I couldn’t have one of my own. Intermittently, I’ve left the pet industry, but I always find myself coming back. Nothing compares to how rewarding working with animals is.
If I could be any breed of dog, I would be the intelligent, loyal, alert, and watchful German Shepherd. Even though at first I might be a little reserved, I’m extremely loving and protective of those around me.
I decided I wanted to work with dogs because whenever I see a dog it brightens my day and makes me happy. Being a dog owner myself, I know the type of connection that owners have with their pups, and I love being a part of that connection by working at Aeslin.
The sort of hobbies I enjoy doing in my spare time is singing and drawing. Singing has always been a passion of mine aside from making art. I soon hope to share my voice with the world.
If I could be any breed of dog, it would definitely be a Siberian Husky. Just like huskies, I am outgoing, loyal, friendly, gentle and alert.
To be able to work with dogs for a living is absolutely amazing. Dogs have such beautiful spirits and connect with us on so many different avenues of life. The fact that they can empathize with us without a voice is miraculous all in itself. To watch them grow and learn is truly a rewarding experience. Most of all, I love that dogs are resilient. Although some are abused, thrown away, or neglected, when the right person comes into their lives they still know what love is. Dogs are simply amazing!
Outside of work, I am an active member of my church committee. Hosting events while bringing people closer to God is a passion that I live for! I also enjoy writing music, painting/sketching, cooking new and exciting recipes, and have recently begun practicing the tenor saxophone. More than anything, I love to travel! To experience different cultures all around the world has been an absolute blessing!
If I could be any breed in the world, I’d be an American Pitbull! Pitties are the “underdog” in the dog community. They are judged by appearance and completely misunderstood. With a tough and strong exterior, they are the most caring and lovable dogs that I’ve ever encountered. Pitbulls have a natural zest for life and are undeniably the life of the party!
I chose to work with dogs because I wanted to do work that has a meaningful impact in my community — work that makes a difference in the lives of dogs and owners alike.
Outside of work, I perform standup comedy, write, and re-watch The Sopranos over and over. On weekends, you can catch me buried in a book or taking a class at The Second City.
I definitely identify most with the Rough Collie because they have large personalities and loads of moxie! They’re quick-witted, spunky, fun and intelligent in equal measure.
I decided to work with dogs because animals are my passion. I’ve been in the pet industry for about 10 years. This is more than just a job, it’s a career for me.
My hobbies outside of work include fishing, going to the zoo and watching horror movies.
If I could be any dog breed, I would be an Australian shepherd because I am loyal, always eager to learn and hard working.
I have had dogs my entire life, so I know the comfort they bring us. The best feeling in the world is to come home and be greeted by a dog. They are such big sweet babies that I absolutely adore. When I first learned about Aeslin, I was drawn to Aeslin’s goal and message to always put the dog first, so I wanted to be a part of it.
When I’m not at Aeslin, I’m a college student. With a busy life, I’m either at school or at home doing homework. Outside of that, I love watching movies and reading books that aren’t required for school!
If I could be any dog breed, I would be a Cocker Spaniel. They’re incredibly loyal to their pack, affectionate, and love to be around people. They also have long, wavy hair, just like me!
