A true friend of animals, Alex has a wide variety of pets. From the fun-sized Shihtzu’s Buddy and Belle, to the mid-sized Yellow Labrador sisters Ellie and Lola, and finally to the gentle giant Hank, an English Mastiff. Rest assured, Alex takes care of all animals with the same love she shows her flock of pets. A Minnesota native, Alex spent much of her time volunteering with local institutions such as the Golden Valley Humane Society.

Alex currently attends college at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign where she is a sophomore studying Communications. Alex works for Come, Sit, Stay, in the summer months doing marketing and field work. She continues her work with animals in Illinois by volunteering with Illini Service Dogs as a mobility service dog trainer. Her absolute favorite breed of dogs are Bernedoodles because of their distinctive personalities and, of course, their fluffy curls. Her work with animals is motivated by her love for discovering their individual personalities and characteristics. Outside of work, Alex enjoys practicing yoga and loves to sing.
