Ryan came to BAC during the summer of 2016. Wanting to gain experience with animals in a veterinary setting, Ryan joined our kennel technician team part time and stayed busy taking care of our furry guests. He started his college career at Huntingdon College the following year and his availability changed. However, we were very happy that Ryan chose to become a seasonal employee during that transition. Ryan is now enrolled in Pharmacy School, but he still comes to work with us during his down time, usually on weekends and holidays, to get his fix on puppy & kitty love. Ryan says the best part of his job is being able to take care of the pets that come to stay with us, as well as working with great people!
Ryan was born in Lexington, KY. After a couple of moves, he ended up in Daphne, AL with his family & dogs, Tide and Bear. One of Ryan’s passions is wrestling, having competed for several years at both the high school and collegiate level. In his spare time, Ryan also enjoys hunting and fishing.
