Adrianna Muller

Adrianna has had a love for animals her whole life. Born and raised in Battle Lake, MN, a town of 800 people, where she attended high school and worked for two different veterinarians at the same time. Her passion is geared towards animals, but she enjoys helping people, too. In 2012 she moved to northern Minnesota to attend college in Duluth pursuing a degree in Massage Therapy and went on to open her own business. While living in Duluth, Adrianna spent many days on the beach of Lake Superior where she met her husband, Jason. Jason, who is originally from New York, was stationed in Duluth with the United States Coast Guard doing search and rescue. In the summer of 2015 they were transferred to Coast Guard Island in Alameda, CA. Even though Adrianna misses the snow, she has been able to experience things with her husband that the Midwest could not offer, such as visiting the redwoods, a lifelong dream of hers! Residing now in the East Bay, she and her husband enjoy hiking and exploring with their two very loved boxers, Eli and Bishop

Brianna Morrison

Brianna grew up in Pleasanton, CA and graduated from the University of California at Santa Cruz with a Bachelor's degree in history, but she has always had a passion for helping animals. She worked as a Salesforce Administrator for a telecommunications company that was acquired by a larger company in the same field called Genesys. They offered her a spot as an EMCA Marketing Operations Manager, a job she originally accepted, but faced with moving to another country for an indeterminate amount of time she ultimately decided the job was not for her. After leaving Genesys Brianna experimented with different careers including helping out on an archaeological dig in Tuscany, Italy, and caring for wolf hybrids at WHAR Wolf Rescue in Paso Robles, CA, where her desire to help animals was reignited. She returned to the Bay Area with her long term boyfriend, Jake, and enjoyed volunteering at the VHS in Pleasanton before finally settling in at Four Paws Veterinary Center.

In her free time, Brianna likes listening to audiobooks, silly podcasts such as Cool Games Inc. and My Brother My Brother and Me, playing video games, hiking, going on spontaneous adventures to the beach, and playing with her                                                                             special needs ferret, Fitz.
