Vivian was born and raised in Washington DC. She graduated from The Evergreen State College in Washington State with a bachelor’s degree focused on environmental science in the springtime of 2014. Her interests are the environment and welfare of animals. She is currently the owner of two cats, Ivy and Blinky, and two Betta fish, Starlord and Alex Bubble Angel. Since a young age she has taken care of a number of pets aside from her own zoo. Even though she never had the opportunity of having her own dog she made friends with many of her neighbors’ and friends’ dogs and she looks forward to doing the same with her clients’ pets. She has walked a variety of dogs through Waggy Walkys since she joined Waggy Walkys in September of 2014. In her spare time she volunteers as a zoo keeper aide at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo where she cares for a variety of species (fish, birds, reptiles, and amphibians) in the Amazonia Exhibit.
