Grace was raised in Northern California, in a house full of rescue animals. She attended Occidental College in Los Angeles, and after graduating, made her way to Jackson to work on a dude ranch. She adopted her first Wyoming dog while working on the ranch, met her husband there, and they just kept adding to their family! One marriage, two dogs, four cats, and two human children later, Grace and her family are still enjoying adventuring in the Tetons. In addition to working at the AAC, Grace is a working artist, kitten foster mom, and preschool art teacher, and is so excited to combine her love of everything creative with her passion for animal rescue.
