'I have been with CCAH since June 2017 and it has been one of he best journeys I've been on. Since I was 5 yrs old, I've always loved animals and knew I would have a future taking care of animals. One day I would love to open up my own boarding facility and pet grooming. I had started as a kennel tech and now have made my way to tech assistant.'
