An Arizona native, Patty has always had a love for animals. Growing up she had dogs, a cat, a lizard, parakeets, guinea pigs, hamsters, all kinds of fish, and even a toad she brought home from a nearby park. While in college she volunteered at the East Valley Animal Care and Control in Mesa, where she walked dogs and helped set up for adoption events. Currently working as a freelance web copywriter, Patty helps pet companies grow their businesses through their website content, social media, and email marketing. She has two long-haired dachshunds named Daisy and Belle. Patty is certified in pet first aid.
