Hi there! My name is Miranda Rivera. I was born and raised in Prior Lake and graduated from Prior Lake High School in 2009. I started working at River Valley Groom & Board in March of 2014 as a Pet Care Provider. Shortly after working here, I took on the role of being a Boarding Coordinator. Prior to this, I was working as a Dog Groomer and a Pet Care Specialist for 7 years. Caring for animals and being their voice has always been my #1 passion (aside from music!) Even as a young girl, I always knew I was meant to work with animals. I was lucky to grow up with my dog Olivia, a Doberman/Rottweiler mix for almost 16 years! In my spare time, I love singing in my band Jimi-Kick for my 2nd job. I also love spending time with family, friends, co-workers and working with my furry babies J In the near future, I hope to continue doing music on the side and furthering my career with animals at River Valley Groom & Board and River Valley Veterinary Service. I can’t wait to gain more knowledge on this rewarding and exciting career!
