Meet Our Kennel Technicians

Our team of kennel technicians is second to none. These dedicated animal lovers come to work each day enthusiastic and ready to provide the highest standard of care possible. Cascade Kennels would not be the business it is today without the help from our amazing team!

Lorraine has been working at Cascade since 2008 as a kennel technician. At the beginning of the 2011 summer she was promoted to Kennel Supervisor. She earned her bachelors degree in Zoology at Washington State University. In her free time Lorraine enjoys reading novels and hiking with her husband, Brian, and their dog Maya.

Jennifer joined our kennel technician team in 2016. With 11 years of experience as a kennel technician at another facility, we are glad to have someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Jennifer coming on board. Jennifer grew up with dogs, and finds joy in her career whenever she can help soothe a stressed or anxious dog. At home she has two dogs, a Chesapeake Bay Retriever mix named Booker, and an Australian Shepherd mix named Laney.

Veronica has been working here with us since March of 2018. She has had years of experience as a vet assistant and dog walking before arriving here. What she loves most about being here is working with other animal-loving people and getting to show as much affection as she can to the animals staying with us! With a very patient, kind and gentle nature about her, she is very well suited for our kennel tech team and hopes to continue working with animals for a very long time. Veronica has an extra soft spot in her heart for animals with big personalities and spunky attitudes. Outside of work you can find her outdoors hiking, camping, and enjoying what the pacific northwest has to offer."

Cedric came on board in February of 2020. Cedric joined us with a few years of professional animal care experience and looks forward to continuing in this field for a long time to come. He loves getting to know the personality of each animal and says that nothing feels quite as special as getting a shy dog to come out of its shell. Cedric has a soft spot for old dogs in particular and is a very patient and gentle caretaker. Outside of work, you can find him playing video games, baking, and doing craft projects like Perler bead art, cross-stitch, or constructing miniature DIY dollhouse kits.

Courtney joined the Cascade Kennels team in October of 2020. Courtney’s wealth of experience with animals includes her other work as a tech and trainer at a nearby rescue organization, plenty of past volunteer experience with rescue dogs, and working as a vet tech. In her position here at Cascade, what Courtney says she loves most is ensuring the animals in her care are happy and healthy. She holds certificates as a dog and cat trainer as well as a shelter animal behavior consultant. Her dream is to one day start her own non-profit rescue that offers training courses with adoptable dogs. In her spare time, she has a number of unique hobbies, including playing piano and ukulele, fencing and playing in a mini-golf league.
