Growing up with dogs at home and a barn full of all kinds of critters, Aileen’s love for animals started at a very young age. She got a bathtub full of baby ducks one Easter. She was riding horses by age 8. Her family had mother and son miniature schnauzers for years and then later, two Golden Retrievers brothers. She trained the Goldens to do all kinds of fun things and they loved going to the barn with her when she went to ride her horse.
Her connection to loving and teaching animals has only gotten stronger in her adult life. Between raising money for local shelters at her annual cocktail party and adopting several dogs and cats over the years, helping animals has always been an important part of her life. Her current furry friend, Henry the cat, is just one of the five rescue cats she’s had. Aileen doesn’t have any dogs of her own right now, but she can’t hide her love of pups so she’s decided to help as many as possible with Agape.
Moving to Nashville in 2005 with a CPA and MBA, Aileen helped start the BrickTop’s restaurant and currently serves as their CFO. As part of the Agape family, Aileen is dedicated to continuing to make a difference in the lives of as many animals as she can.
