How you started working with Labelle?
I was introduced to The Labelle Foundation in May 2020 when I adopted one of my fur babies from the foundation. I knew I wanted to work for Labelle after looking into what sets this rescue apart from others. I started by volunteering any extra time I had. The ladies of Labelle eventually asked me to join the team and I was so excited to start my journey!

Favorite part or memory working with Labelle?
My favorite part about working for Labelle would have to be the “Furever Home” photos/moments. It is amazing to see these pups come from horrible situations into a happy, healthy home – makes my heart so full! In addition to all things happy – I love working with this killer team. The Labelle ladies are some of the hardest working women there are.

About
I received my B.A. in Public Relations, with a minor in Sociology from California State University Fullerton. After graduating, I knew I wanted to work for an organization that has the same values as me. I started as a Social Media Specialist for the largest mental health clinic in Orange County where I was able to work toward reducing the stigma around mental health. Investing into things I am passionate about led me to The Labelle Foundation – where I became a Social Media Coordinator.

As a Social Media Coordinator, I take pride in being the foundation’s voice and advocacy in our community. I specialize in writing, developing, strategizing, and approving all social media content. Day-to-day, you can find me doing all things social and maintaining strong relationships with our supporters.

Favorite thing to do in LA
My favorite thing to do in LA is thrifting (I am a sucker for good finds) and taking my fur babies to the beach!
