My name is Erica, I was born and raised in FSJ. I’ve always loved being around animals more than people from a very young age.

In 2006, I purchased my first reptile which was a water dragon and shortly after that I began working full time at Friendly Pets. I was in the reptile and fish room and that was my sanctuary. I was learning everyday and loved these animals more and more.

In 2012, I started a family of  my own and took some time off work but would always go in to visit with the kids and see the animals. Since I have started my family, I continue to work at Friendly Pets any chance I get. Friendly Pets is where I feel most at home and where I continue to learn about the animals I love.
