Personal: Originally from Ohio, I moved to Arizona when I was in high school. I love movies, hiking, video games, and traveling whenever I get the chance. I have a strong passion for rescuing and helping animals. My house has been referred to as the “mini zoo” for some time now. I tend to rescue small exotics like sugar gliders and hedgehogs, and I will help any animal in need. I also own a small pet sitting company called Adrianna’s Pet N’ Go, which I have operated since 2014.
