Ivy was born and raised in San Jose, California. Prior to her birth, her parents lived in Portland for several years and always spoke fondly of Oregon, and Ivy fell in love with the state as well after a few visits! When Ivy realized that working with animals was her passion, she wasted no time in moving towards her goal, and is currently enrolled in the Veterinary Technology program at Dallas Community College. Her home menagerie includes pets Ahi Tuna, Pomme Frites, Cannoli, and Andouille. Ivy enjoys commuting by bike when the weather is nice, barre, and weightlifting. In her down time, you might find her watching a movie or enjoying the mindful coziness of Animal Crossing or Unpacking on her Gameboy Switch.
