young woman with brown pitbull


Noelani is not busy enough with her family (husband, three children (or, as she calls them, “small feral coconuts from Moana”), dogs Mango & Jellybean, cats RJ & Linda B Johnson, and bunny Beemo, plus working full-time, so she is also attending school to become a Certified Veterinary Technician. We don’t know how she does it all! Noelani’s love of animals was evident from a young age: her first job was a bather at a grooming salon, and she was also active in 4H and high school rodeo. Now, she says she only

works at Applewood “for the old dogs”: we know that’s not strictly true but she does have a passion for senior pets and loves to dote on them! One of Noelani’s long term goals is to get certified in canine fitness with a focus on rehabilitation for senior pets.
