Mariah was born and raised in the small town of Danielsville, Georgia. Her and her family have owned many different animals since she could remember- from turtles and birds, all the way to goats and snakes. She has always had an easy connection and desire to work with animals. In 2018 Mariah did wildlife rehabilitation work where she found her desire to work with exotics and wildlife. She currently attends Athens Tech and is applying to the Vet Technician program in the fall. She plans to go on to Vet school and one day specialize in exotics. She has three dogs (Lincoln, Oliver and Kaiser), two snakes (Bibo and Eve), two rats (Parmesan and Maple) and one Chamelion (Uno).
