Staff and Advisory

Leanna Swane
Administrative & Animal Care Assistant

Leanna has lived in Washington since she was a toddler. She grew up in the little mountain town of Skykomish until her family moved to Camano Island when she was 10. During high school she volunteered for four years at Northwest Organization for Animal Help, located in Stanwood, WA. After high school Leanna attended the University of Washington to study Biology, with a focus in coursework on Zoology. She has also volunteered at Pigs Peace Sanctuary in Stanwood, WA. She just moved to Port Townsend from Seattle, where she was working as a dog-walker, and is relieved to be living in the country again. Her passions are reading, writing, cooking, nature, and animals (of course!). She has always had a great love for animals and is very happy to be part of a team dedicated to helping them here at CVAR.
