Samantha graduated from Cal State Long Beach with a B.A. in English Literature. Although she has a degree in English, her real passion has always been with animals. After beginning as a volunteer, she remained in the pet industry for over 10 years. She has worked in Veterinary Hospitals, Boarding Facilities and with Rescue Organizations. Her favorite part of working with animals has been learning animal behavior. Clients have always made mention of her ability to handle pets that weigh more than she does. She believes her ability to handle all different kind of pets has come with her familiarity and interest in pet behavior.
Samantha has 2 dogs; Maya a Whippet mix and Latte a Miniature Pinscher. The “Min Pin” is her favorite breed because of their tenacious, spunky, and slightly naughty personalities. She jokes that after working in the pet industry for as long as she has; she would know to prefer a less difficult breed. She enjoys listening to music, wine tasting, and spending time with her pets.
