Life started for Amanda on a small farm with rabbits, chickens, turkeys, ducks, geese, cows, sheep, pigs, and a mule named Jack. Later she moved to Alaska and started exploring exotics owning frogs, basilisks, and even an albino Burmese python more than 10 feet long. Animals are a passion, as well as, lifelong learning. She started her career in the animal field as a groomer becoming a certified pet stylist and later training with Alaska's master groomer. In 2013 she got her foot in the door of a Veterinary practice and worked hard to become a technician, all while never looking back. After a break from formal education, Amanda is resuming her undergraduate degree and planning on becoming a Veterinarian.
"After all you can take the girl off the farm but you can't take the farm outta the girl".
Amanda loves the bulleys, drooleys, blockheads and the misunderstood with the not so good reputations. Changing breed-specific misconceptions is a cause close to her heart because like all people, all pets are different.
When she is not working she enjoys hiking, fishing, hunting, survival enthusiast, and an all-around avid outdoorswoman. She also loves warm fuzzy socks, good books, and puzzles.
Amanda is a critter parent of 1 Pitbull, 2 Kitties, and 1 Rogue Rabbit.
