Anisa grew up in Stillwater, Oklahoma. She has always enjoyed being around animals. As a child, she had rabbits as pets: Chocolate, Chip, Cookie, and Molly and many baby bunnies. New adventures led her to the Washington, DC area after college, and there she met her furry kitty partners in crime, Mattey and Sameen. After 10 years in DC, these gals packed their belongings and moved to Philadelphia.
When Anisa isn’t caring for your sweet pets, she is a development professional and has been an adjunct faculty member in Arts Management at Drexel University. She is currently the development director for a local nonprofit. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Art History from Oklahoma State University and a master’s degree in Arts Management from American University.
Anisa lives in Roxborough with her husband, Mike, Sameen (who just celebrated her 18thbirthday!) and Lucy, a sassy 8-year-old mixed terrier. She has a real fondness for senior pets and those needing a loving retirement home. In her free time, Anisa enjoys gardening, cooking and being outdoors. She’s excited to join the Queenie’s Team to expand her circle of fur-friends.
Anisa has been on Team Queenie’s since 2018.
