Our Staff: Emely
Dog Handler
In college, I was in a club that helped train service dogs. Eventually, I became their fundraising chair and I tried to include our service dogs in each fundraiser. My favorite fundraiser is our puppy photo booth. We would dress up our dogs have them take pictures with people that passed by.
I have two Chihuahuas named Simba and Bella. Simba is sweet and shy but he opens up once you get to know him. Bella loves to sleep and cuddle everyday. I also have a rabbit named Chipmunk and he goes crazy for snacks.
I learned how to teach basic commands to service dogs in training during my time at 4 Paws for Ability.
I do not have a favorite breed. Each dog I see or interact with brings a big smile on my face. :)
I love to bake and I am always happy to try new recipes.
I hope to one day work in the pet food industry. I would like to help formulate specialized diets for individual dogs.
I like to take long walks and explore the city.
I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in May 2021. I also graduated from Intrinsic Schools (Belmont Campus) in 2017
I have traveled to Mexico, Italy, Switzerland, and France.
