Ryan started at AWA in 2021 as a vet tech and has been a foster parent for AWA for the past 7 years, as well as an AWA adopter of 3 dogs, 2 rabbits and most recently, a kitten named Marshmellow. Ryan has a wealth of shelter knowledge and experience. She was an ACO and office manager of an animal shelter in Ocean county for many years and prior to that a vet tech in private practice. Her background in the field (and having firsthand knowledge of our foster program as a foster parent herself) made her a natural fit for the program. She is dedicated to the animals in our care and to the organization and is looking forward to growing our program even more.
