In 2013, after many years of retail management, kDen. found himself on a new career trajectory as a veterinary technician, earning a certificate from the Asnuntuck Community College Veterinary Assistant Program in Connecticut. He has spent the last several years working in animal welfare and high volume spay/neuter, as both a technician and clinic administrator.
As a lifelong animal lover (and son of a technician), kDen. Found himself forever drawn to the world of animal rescue and conservation. kDen. began working with Animal Balance as a volunteer in 2017 on Kaua’i, Hawaii.
kDen. currently lives just on Kaua’i, Hawaii with his partner and 2 kids, and a motley crew of rescue pets. In January of 2019, they opened The Spay Pod, where they hope to provide free and low-cost spay/neuter services for the community for years to come.
