Randi was born in Federal Way and raised in Covington Washington for most of her childhood before moving to Latah County with her family in 2003. She worked at her mom’s family business in Potlatch Idaho through high school. Once she graduated, she moved to Boise Idaho to work at the Idaho humane society. In 2015 she got an opportunity to work at a different shelter and traveled to Pennsylvania to work at the animal shelter in a small town called Harrisburg. Randi has since then moved back to the Latah County area to raise her son Chase. She loves spending her time away from work doing activities with her son. They enjoy camping, fishing, going to parks, playing with Legos, thrift store shopping, cooking, and so many more fun hobbies. Randi one day hopes to open an animal rescue.
Emily grew up in the Seattle area, and knew from a young age she wanted to work with animals. An interest in science, medicine, and all things “gross” eventually pushed her in the direction of veterinary medicine. While attending college at Western Washington University in Bellingham she also discovered how fulfilling it can be to help people with their pets through working at a local veterinary hospital. Since then she has moved around the Pacific Northwest, working in research and attending graduate school. She has worked on studies ranging from type II diabetes prevention in humans, to the migration of steelhead trout. Currently, she is a third year veterinary student at WSU and hopes to work in mixed practice medicine when she graduates. In her free time Emily loves to spend time working in the vegetable garden with her partner Jori, and definitely has too many pets.
