Kennel Assistant

Started Working at Ancare: September 2020

Educational Background: Bachelor’s in Anthropology from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign

About Me: Hey I’m Maggie! I’m currently 23 years old and have lived in Peru for a majority of my life! I recently graduated from the University of Illinois in Urbana Champaign in May of 2020 and due to Covid-19 I moved back to the Illinois Valley after completing my degree. When the weather is nice you can usually find me out hiking at Starved Rock or Matthiessen or spending time with friends. As a child I really wanted to work with animals so working at Ancare has quite literally been a dream come true!

My Pet: Ruth; the sweetest little girl who came into our clinic and stole my heart instantly! She has fought tooth and nail just to be here today and I couldn’t imagine life without her!

Favorite Thing About My Job: Spending time with our daycare dogs and boarders and learning all their little quirks! They’ve become like family to me and I care about them just as much as my own!

Hidden Talent or Something Unique: I’m learning how to do embroidery!
