Marketing, Event & Outreach Coordinator
Hey there, I am Kayleigh.
I am originally from Upstate NY (yes, the real upstate in the Adirondack Mountains!) and have been all over NY, then moved down to Myrtle Beach and just came to Raleigh in 2020. I haven't got to see the true Raleigh yet as I moved here the day everything shut down.
I have a dog, Bailey, who is a Lab mixed with German Shephard, Terrior and Dobby the House Elf and a little bit of Reindeer. She is a 2 year old Rescue and is the best thing to happen to me. She has taught me patience, which was something that I needed more than anything.
Before Bailey though, I had a little Morkie puppy named Ellie. She was as sweet as could be, but was sick the day after I brought her home from a store. After a week of making daily vet trips, ER trips, watching her fade, I had to do what was best. The vet had a program that adopts animals and gives them full 24 hour care and medical attention. It was the hardest decision I have ever made, but three days after they took her in, she crossed the rainbow bridge. They didn't know what happened, but that made me really want to help my future dog by providing her good food and alternatives to different feedings. After this, it took close to 8 months, but I did a lot of research before I found Bailey at a rescue in Myrtle Beach.
Starting with Unleashed in January 2021 was the best thing to happen to me. I got my dream job here and got to leave a job I learned I wasn't crazy about anymore. I have done a lot of learning since moving to Raleigh, and I couldn't be happier with my decision to work for this business.
I have always loved working with animals. Growing up in an agriculture farm town where there were more cows and horses than people, I was bound to come back to it all at some point. The fact I get to see puppies all day, help rescues, help animals, and just helping others out in general, it fills my heart up.
