Amica Smith - Daycare Coordinator
Born and raised in the Seattle area Amica has spent the last 7 years working at a number of local animal hospitals and daycares and feels she’s found herself at home here at All Things PAWSitive. Being surrounded with such lovable, dedicated employees played a big role in her happiness and success, giving her extra motivation to positively impact the lives of countless dogs she interacts with each day. Amica is definitely one of the most genuine animal lovers you will ever meet. At home she cares for and spoils her three pets: Jobey the Doberman pinscher, Harley the grey tabby and Arlo the crested gecko. Outside of work you can find her staying active doing a number of interesting things. A good portion of her time is spent studying for a degree in psychology and human development through Washington State University. The little free time she has left is spent doing yoga and then reading/learning more about dogs. She believes that canines have many qualities that can help with mental and physical health. One day she hopes to be able to counsel children through the help of therapy animals. Every once in a while she and her dog Jobey provide complementary therapy sessions at retirement homes in Seattle.
Kim Lambert - Daycare Coordinator
Kim has lived in Washington her entire life and I loves the cloudy weather. Having raised 2 children, she finds herself an empty nester with her husband of 30 years and her 14 year old Aussie/Beagle dog Chimay. Prior to joining ATP she spent 3 year working with dogs in a daycare setting. She took a break for about 9 months, but realized how much she enjoyed it, that’s when she knew where she needed to be: With dogs! She is excited to join this team and daycare and cannot wait to meet and play with your precious dogs.
Some of Kim’s hobbies are cooking, crocheting and working in her garden.
Savana Williams - Daycare Coordinator
Savana came to ATP as a summer part-timer who has lived her whole life raising all kinds of animals. She grew up in southern California, but has been a resident of Washington for 12-13 years now. Her family's one dog is an old American Bulldog named Maximus. She was previously employed at Blue Mountain Humane Society in Walla Walla, Washington, where she took the floor cleaning kennels, walking dogs and assisting other staff with intakes. Outside of work during the summer, she's a full-time student (now a sophomore) attending Walla Walla University. For many years she had her mind set on studying veterinary medicine, but more recently decided to major in Art, with dreams of becoming an accomplished concept artist. However, she still desires to care for animals non-vocationally, and possibly return to the shelter during the school year when her schedule allows.
Savana’s hobbies include, but are not limited to, hiking, watching movies, and doing anything art-related (even making costumes). There are also many places around the world on her bucket list that she hopes to visit one day, once she’s able.
