Since January 2011.

What’s your role at the company?
Claims Training Coach

Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
Bandersnatch (boxer mix), Chew Toy (Domestic Short Hair), and Archer (Domestic Short Hair).

Do you bring your pets to work?
Yes – both Bandersnatch and Archer come into work with me. Chew Toy prefers to stay at home and lounge on the couch.

Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?
Both Chew Toy and Archer have been blood donors for a local blood bank, and I love the fact that they are little kitty heroes.

My favorite thing to do is:
I love playing table top role play games and board games with my friends.

If I could go anywhere in the world it would be:
To visit my grandma at the ocean.

What I like about working at Trupanion:
I love being able to help owners and their furry loved ones, and even though sometimes we can’t help out I’m glad we make strides to make sure they understand why.
