Administrative Staff


Maria Bartolome Customer Service Manager

Maria joined our reception team in late 2015. She previously worked at PetSmart where she gained quite a bit of animal knowledge. She wanted to expand on that knowledge, so she decided to apply to work in the veterinary field. We knew that Maria’s bubbly personality and contagious smile would be an excellent addition for our team. When she’s not working, she loves doing arts and crafts and spending time with her family and her senior Jack Russell, Miller.

Stacey Sosinski Veterinary Nurse

Stacey began her career in the veterinary field working as a caretaker for over 300 animals at the Animal Refuge Center. She fell in love with the medical side of animal care and decided to pursue an entry-level position at an animal clinic, which is where she received her training. From there, she began her journey with exotic medicine and worked as an exotics-only technician. Stacey has had a passion for animal care since she was very small. Having worked in this field now for several years, there is no doubt in her mind that this is what she's meant to do. For her, one of the most fulfilling aspects of her job is being able to make pets happy and healthy all while building a relationship with them and their owners. While she enjoys working with animals of all kinds, exotics (especially reptiles) hold a very special place in her heart.
Stacey and her fiance Joseph share their home with 5 dogs (Sadie and Pig the Pit Bulls and Stella, Annie, and Zoey the Chihuahuas), 2 geckos, and 3 snakes, but are always adding more to their menagerie. In her free time, Stacey enjoys being with her animals, going to the shooting range, visiting reptile expos with her fiance, and painting pet portraits.

Brittany Delgado Customer Service Representative

Brittney is one of the new smiling faces you will find at our front desk. After high school, she originally pursued a career in the police academy and became a certified correctional officer. She decided it was time for a career change after she found love and compassion rescuing 3 horses, 5 goats, 2 dogs and 1 cat.

When Brittney is not at Animalife, you will find her spending time outdoors with her pit mix, Dixie!
