Athena brings over 15 years of accounting/bookkeeping experience paired with a life-long passion for animal advocacy to the position of Board Treasurer. She loves putting her skills to good work in furthering the mission of PetConnect Rescue and helping as many animals as possible find their forever home. Athena first became involved with PCR in 2019 when she started fostering kittens. She believes nurturing, socializing, and identifying the unique needs of each foster is essential to advocate for them effectively and match them to the perfect home. Athena lives in Kensington, Maryland with her husband, Blair, their dog, Jackson, and four rescue kitties, Chibbs, Baya, Lucy and Coal. She is always covered in pet hair but wouldn’t have it any other way.
