Gift Shop ManagerLibby has always had animals find their way to her doorstep. Throughout the years of common (and some uncommon) strays along the way, she was able to truly understand compassion and kindness and pass it along to her two children. She embraces caring for any creature and has opened her door and heart to many along the way.
In 2011, Libby began volunteering weekly at TreeHouse which led to the position of Office Manager. TreeHouse has become quite the family and she wouldn't change a thing.
