Before joining PAHS, he received his Master’s degree in Animal Shelter Management while working with shelters and TNR organizations to improve their business processes and animal welfare best practices. His interest in animal welfare and nonprofit administration stems from his time working in the tech industry and New York City animal shelters. He knew he wanted a career where he could utilize his passion and education in animal sciences, along with his skills in business management. Currently working hand in hand with Sue, PAHS will be left in his capable hands and heading in an exciting new direction.
