Before joining the POMDR staff in November 2018, Angela volunteered with Meals on Wheels. Having a passion for dogs, she became aware that some of her clients there had dogs who they were physically unable to walk. She learned there was an organization which provided that service, which is how she found out about POMDR! She is now thrilled to be helping both senior people and senior dogs.
Angela is a marine biologist by trade. She has been lucky enough to work in that capacity in Alaska, Hawaii, Catalina Island, and most recently, the Bahamas. While there, she also worked for a local nonprofit to restore native plants, and enjoyed seeing the positive effects of her labors.
Angela received her Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology and Marine Biology with a minor in Scientific Diving from Humboldt State University. While studying there, she co-founded the Animal Behavior Club. She recently earned her Master’s degree in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Labs.
