Sharon’s first job as a teenager was walking dogs and cleaning kennels at a dog and cat hotel in Cottage Grove Oregon. She then attended the University of Oregon studying Travel, Tourism and Recreation Management that then led her to the Wood River Valley. Here she fell in love with snowboarding, mountain biking and met her husband, Henno. They live in Hailey with their French Bulldog and Havanese. Sharon works with the finance team where she can be found looking at adoptable pets on the shelter website between bookkeeping and data entry.
