Originally hailing from Ohio, Mariah’s family lived in three other states before settling here in our beloved Roanoke when she was in the 3rd grade. Having always wanted to work with animals, she started her career at Franklin County Humane Society before joining our team in January 2021. She is currently enrolled in Penn Foster’s Licensed Veterinary Technician program. Her main veterinary interests include various types of surgery and hopes to one day work with exotic animals. When she’s not studying or working, Mariah loves to get lost in a good fiction novel and spend time with her many animals: Two Great Danes- Max and Ruby; Five cats- Gizmo, Casey, Simba, Sunny and Mama Cat; and her newest additions to her furry family- two Sugar Gliders.
