I am the owner of Green Acres Animal Rescue located in St. Augusta, MN. I have a BS in Criminal Justice and am currently working toward a Graduate Degree in Nonprofit Leadership & Management from Metropolitan State University. After a course in animal welfare and my passion for animals I decided that opening an animal shelter was my calling. I can't say it has been easy but each story I receive from an adopter of one of our animals makes me keep moving forward.
I live on a 20 acre farm with my boyfriend and we have goats, chickens, ducks, geese, dogs and rabbits. He has plans for more in the future but this keeps us busy all the time. I have a son who is in the Army and currently in South Korea for a year and a daughter who works for St. Cloud Hospital. I also have a very beautiful granddaughter who brings joy every time I see her face!
