I look forward to coming to work every day since I started working at Atlanta West. I enjoy the time I spend with each animal in boarding, and also furthering my experience and knowledge working with the doctors. Working alongside Dr. Burnett and Dr. Lohani has given me a broad look at treating patients in our care. Malory is from the Douglasville/Paulding County Area and has 2 years of kennel experience from working at Kritters Country Club prior to joining the Atlanta West Team. Malory loves spending time outdoors with her American Bulldog named Molly, going to part, hiking, and swimming.
