Following 25 years as a Purchasing Agent for two major communication companies, Chyrl’s life took a completely different turn.  What started as a back up/fill in/ all around helper position at Acadiana Animal Aid has turned into a labor of love for Chyrl.  As Facilities Manager she maintains the 10 acres and 5 buildings on the property- from cutting grass to painting, electrical or plumbing, Chyrl is up to any task – especially if it is outdoors.  


She also assists with the transport program to Colorado Springs, Wildwood FL, Haughton, and Covington where she says she is “making every mile a memory!”  Occasionally, she will foster when her 12-year-old standard poodle will allow her to. In her spare time Chyrl loves to kayak, fish, cook, scuba dive and spend time with family and friends. Chyrl also loves watching live eagle cams.  



On her second career with Acadiana Animal Aid, Chryl says, “I’m sure you have heard the saying “Who Rescued Who?”, for me it is Acadiana Animal Aid that has rescued me! I can’t imagine working for any other place. Until they all have a home!”
