Tifaine Thompson – Client Care Team Lead

Tifaine is originally from western Nebraska and moved to Lincoln to attend UNL. She rejoined our team in January 2017. Tifaine is a recent Animal Science graduate from UNL. Although she was born in Nebraska she is also fortunate to call South Dakota home. Her heart belongs to a Pomeranian rescue named Kiki! He is what drove her to pursue her passion for working with animals and volunteering with shelters and rescues. While in college she and two of her friends founded an organization dedicated to volunteering, fundraising and aiding in animal wellness and safety (P.A.W.S.). When Tifaine is not at work or with friends she can be found working on P.A.W.S. next fundraiser or event!
