    Hi my names Quinn! I have had cats in my life since I was 15 years old now 20 so I am very familiar with the routine maintenance of 3 cats! Though I have never done vaccines I am gentle and kind and willing to learn how to administer anything the animals may need. I volunteer on Sundays to take care of cats, I play with, feed and water the cats. I am very familiar with cleaning duties, and am efficient in this area. I have been in sales for at least 2 years. I prefer a team environment and am a fast learner when it comes to computers and specialized programs. Other than that I love animals and am excited to learn anything I can do help out and care of them.
