Anna is the Director of Canine Education Programs.

Anna is a Maine native and a graduate from the University of Maine in Orono where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Animal and Veterinary Science. During her college years she began her journey into the pet industry through a local, organic dog shampoo company. Determined to dedicate her life to her then beloved Golden Retriever, Gaby, she moved to Texas to pursue her passion from training. She holds three certifications in dog training and behavior modification from Starmark Academy for Professional Dog Trainers in Hutto, Texas.  She then spent the next two years training dogs and managing a doggie daycare in Massachusetts and Arkansas until she found her way back home to Maine. Anna joined the Kennebec Valley Humane Society in the spring of 2016 as kennel master and dog behavior specialist. Over the years, Anna has spent countless hours helping shelter dogs find and stay in their forever homes. Anna has a rat terrier mix named Taco whom she adopted from a shelter while living in Texas and a cat, Phoenix, who she adopted from KVHS.
