Nadia grew up in Marysville, OH and moved to Columbus about 6 years ago. She has always loved animals from a very young age. Growing up she owned lizards, geckos, lots of fish, cats, dogs and even raised some tadpoles. She loved to volunteer at her hometown humane society where she would play with the cats and dogs and fostered some kittens. When she's not at work she is usually spending time outside, doing photography, reading, painting or spending time with her two fluffy cats.
