Hi, I’m Sue Carroll and my dog, Joey, is joining me in this photo. My love for animals most likely started the day I was delivered into this world by the town veterinarian. I have always loved animals and being surrounded by pets fills me with joy. I was the kid with a dog, hamsters, turtles, hermit crabs and anything else I was allowed to bring into the house. While the neighbor girls were playing with dolls and fixing their hair I was glued to Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom with Marlin Perkins. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural Business from Colorado State University (with a strong emphasis on animal husbandry). Most of my jobs have involved working with animals in some capacity including veterinary technician, dog groomer, milking dairy cows and my current position as owner and biscuitologist at Bones Du Jour dog treat bakery. My first experience with talking on any sort of radio was with my Dad who was a small plane pilot and instructor. I would listen intently to the air traffic and watch my Dad as I sat co-pilot in a small Cessna. I always loved listening to him talk on the radio and then one day it happened, he let me answer the radio and I was hooked! One of the jobs I held that didn’t involve animals was the decade or so I spent as an emergency services dispatcher for police, fire and ambulance. While my prior radio experience was not public radio I was no stranger to wearing headsets and talking into a mic. When my co-host Jill Reynolds asked me if I wanted to join her in hosting Critter Patter I had no idea what fun it would be to be back on the radio talking about animals! Sharing stories with people that are passionate about animals is an amazing honor. I’m so lucky to get to share with you everything from dogs and cats to manatees! May you always be surrounded by the pitter patter of critters! Sue
