Ben arrived in Jackson back in 2016 as a temporary stop over, well, and as most Jackson stories go is staying for the long haul. Ben graduated from Purdue University and has been working in technology consulting ever since, working for companies such as Intel, IBM, and the likes. For the past decade, Ben has been spearheading and running his own Technology Consulting firm, focusing on data in the healthcare space (doesn’t get much more exciting than this).
Ben’s love for animals has been strong from a very early age, pretending to ride horses, convincing his parents that we needed chickens (success!), playing, running with every dog imaginable, and of course working and volunteering at various shelters and boarding facilities, just to be close to the cuties. Ben recently became a pet parent again when he foster failed a lovely blonde (yellow lab) from Texas named Fiona.
Ben came on the scene with AAC as cat volunteer where Jenna has proclaimed him King of Kitty City and he continues to work, play, dance, and sing to the cats.
