Kennel and Cattery Team Leader
Danielle has always known she wanted to work with animals. Her passion began caring for family pets and grew from there. Whilst studying for a BSc (Hons) Behaviour degree, she had the opportunity to spend time volunteering at an animal hospital in Greece. She enjoyed her time with the team so much, she volunteered twice. As a Kennel and Cattery Team Leader, she is in her element caring for and spending time with her four-legged friends. In her spare time, Danielle enjoys travelling and taking the family dog, Diesel the staffordshire bull terrier, on adventures.
