Prior to entering the animal field, Colleen spent 6 years caring for the elderly with love and compassion. Before coming to Oz, Colleen managed over 15 employees and at times over 100 animals as a Kennel Manager for two years at a large hospital.
Colleen is the proud mother of 2 teenage boys, 3 dogs and 2 cats. She is the Vice President of the Board of Governors at her oldest son's high school, an avid volunteer and field trip chaperone at her youngest son's grammar school and a face painter for all occasions including birthdays, school functions, block parties and more.
Her hobbies include hanging out with her children, hugging her pets, and making costumes for her pets to wear so she can take their pictures.
