Angelyn is a Northern California native who moved to Charlotte, NC when she was 10. Growing up, her family always had cats, which is how she learned to love animals. After moving to Asheville and her family cat Momo passed, Angelyn spent time volunteering at the Asheville Humane Society where her interest in animals grew. In 2015, when her family and her now husband moved to Charleston, she pursued a position at the Charleston Animal Society as a technician. The time she spent there sparked a fire in her, and Angelyn is currently working towards her veterinary technician certification. Angelyn and her husband Todd have five fur babies: an Australian Shepherd named Kingsley, a Dogo Argentino named Lupin who is blind and deaf, and three cats – Crookshanks, James, and Alastor.
