KJ has always had a knack for caring. Whether it's for humans or animals she's always been involved. KJ started working with animals at the age of 12, volunteering her weekends to work at Apex Farms. She continued her love for animals volunteering at wildlife rescues and then going onto Carrington College. Her life then took a different path, as she went on to caregive for elderly and disabled adults, but now she has found her way back to her true calling, animals! KJ currently has a shihtzu-maltese named Squish and a bearded dragon named Beardie. In her free time you most likely will find her laughing at something, enjoying a walk, taking some nature photos, or singing her heart out.
Emilia and her husband Zac recently moved here from the Bay Area. Together they have two adopted fur children, a pit bull mix named Lana and a wild french bulldog named Hai Hai who always keeps them on their toes! Emilia went to college to be a teacher but has always had a passion for animals. While attending college and after completing her degree she worked at a boarding facility for the past 7 years. In her free time Emilia enjoys spending time with family and friends, exploring her new surroundings, and taking her dog on hikes with her husband.
