Elizabeth is originally from Eaton, OH. She moved to Troy in 2014 to be closer to her family. Elizabeth’s love for animals started at a young age. She grew up on a dairy farm where she helped her Grandmother treat and care for all of their animals. She was a 10-year member of her local 4-h club, and she was also a member of her school’s FFA Chapter, where she obtained her State and American FFA degrees. After graduating, Elizabeth decided to branch into this field because of the love and compassion for animals her grandmother grew in her at a young age.
