Hello, my name is Morgan! I have been working at Aboard the Ark since December of 2012. I enjoy working here because it allows me to be around animals all day. I started out working in the kennels and did reception work for awhile, but then underwent training to become a full time groomer. I currently have a black german shepherd named Samantha, a yorkie named Tootsie, and a kitten that I rescued and bottle fed named Disney. I have always loved animals and I’m glad I have a job that revolves around them!

I am one of the groomers here at Aboard the Ark. I first started bathing back in 2013 during my senior year at Richwoods High School. I bathed for about a year and then went to grooming academy in July of 2014. I knew I wanted a career that involved animals and I hit the jackpot with grooming. I fell in love with working hands-on with the dogs everyday and the challenges it held. I started here at the Ark in August of 2015 and feel right at home! My boyfriend Justin and I currently own two dogs. Our first is Kimber, our four year old English Springer Spaniel. The second is Kane, a 1 year old Pitbull mix. These three are my whole world! I am truly grateful to have a fun and exciting job as well as great people to work with.
