Dog Program Manager at Austin Pets Alive!
Deaven Wilson started at APA in January 2012 as an offsite Dog Adoption counselor without any previous animal experience. Deaven just fell right into place at APA.
Her time at APA rapidly began to feel less like a job, and more like breaking new ground along side a second family. Through her drive to learn and improve she quickly became a leader. She was an adoption counselor for 2.5 years and then took on the role of Dog Adoption Manager. Deaven began to play a key role in dog rescue and intake, in addition to leading a team of 15 Adoption Counselors. She is now the Dog Program Manager and oversees dog rescue and placement, as well as adoption and foster protocols. In January 2017, she will be celebrating her 5 year anniversary as a staff member and there hasn’t been a single dull day.
Deaven looks forward to continuing to grow, learn, and improve with APA .
