Rosie's Bio
Hi, My name is Rosie. Ever since I was a child, I’ve always loved animals. If I was at a friend’s house, I’d be petting the dogs instead of playing with the other kids. I volunteered at an animal shelter and got my first job in the grooming industry at age 17. Over a decade later, I can’t imagine doing anything else for a career and still get excited when I see a dog on the sidewalk. In my free time, I enjoy planning trips to national parks and doing anything outdoors. I have a German Shepard, a Golden/mix, and a cat.
