Estefany joined our team in October, 2019. She knew she wanted to work in the animal field since she was 5 years old, when she got her first puppy. The strong bond she felt with her dog made her realize that she could never see herself doing anything but working with animals.

Before college, she was in the restaurant business for 5 years where she learned her customer service etiquette. During college, she interned at a zoo in Norristown, PA, where she learned animal behavior, husbandry, and medical terminology.
