Meet our Matchmakers

I’m Krystal and I have 13 years of experience working with the four legged best friends. I worked with my first vet office for a year and took a year off then took on another adventure to my next facility for 7 years where I was trained almost everything I was taught. Then I found my way here the first time around for 4 years and learned so much about how much animals impact each person’s lives. I stepped away for a while now I’m back and love it.


Marie has spent the last 30 years in the dental management industry and has now returned to her first love, animals, here at Suncoast Humane Society. She moved to Englewood, FL full time in 2021 from the New England area. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in veterinary science and business from the University of New Hampshire. Directly after graduation she spent 14 years managing and working for a private dog kennel and 40 acre equestrian property. Her position allowed her to gain further experience in canine and equine breeding, canine obedience, agility and hunter training. Along with managing all the necessary veterinary care of the animals and organizing all necessary requirements for AKC dog shows and USEF horse shows that took place on the property.


Hi I’m Taylor! I fell in love with animal welfare when I was 13 years old. After years of volunteering I was able to get a job with Suncoast Humane Society. Now I help our furry friends find their fur-ever homes.
