Meet Christina! Christina serves with valor in the very demanding role as RASKC’s Dog Team Scheduler for the volunteers based in Kent. She works very hard to ensure there is enough volunteer coverage – but not too much- to care for the dogs for each of six shifts every day. Last year she juggled the schedules of 99 volunteers who contributed a total of 3,746 hours. As an Information Technology professional, Christina crunches Dog Team data in many ways.

Christina also worked a weekly early morning shift with RASKC dogs for over two years prior to becoming the scheduler. Thank you, Christina!
