I have created my own personal initiative: Canines for Cancer after my bullmastiff named Dutch was diagnosed with cancer. Many people are forced to put their pets down when facing the high cost of medical care that comes with being a pet owner, but I provide information on life-saving financial information to pet owners and direct them on ways to cut down expenses for their pet’s veterinary care.
I have partnered with Miranda's People which provides financial assistance for people that have pets with cancer the website is mirandaspeople.org and the canine cancer foundation that provides how to do a wellness check on your fur babies the website is wearethecure.org.
Outside of my dedication to service and animal care, I am a multifaceted titleholder. I'm currently working on my bachelor’s degree in business management at Grand Canyon University. I also work as an accounting Officer for the State of California and the owner of a pet party business called Kit Kat Poochie Parties.
I also like to spend time with my 4 dogs. She has 2 pit bulls Capone and Little Girl and 2 chihuahuas, Little Boy and Peanut. I also love sports. I am a diehard Dallas Cowboys fan and love the Dallas Mavericks as well!
As an Ambassador, leader, and educator I plan to use my title to continue spreading the word that pet owners can afford medication for their fur babies while being financially responsible.
