Meet Our Team

Our team is second to none in every sense of the meaning. We couldn't have a group with more heart, dedication, passion and enthusiasm for what we do - SAVING DOGS!! Every one of them has jobs, families, lives, hobbies, etc and still manage to make time to volunteer with Releash Atlanta and work with our affiliated rescues, to help make adoption EASIER for you! We want NO excuses to not adopt, that is why we are here!

Kristin - Founder - Chariman of the board

I think I have had every different animal you can find, ride, adopt or catch since I was a kid. I have an extra soft spot for dogs, they're innocent and voiceless and often end up in the wrong hands so once I learned of this "rescue world" I never looked back. I have 4 of my own dogs and there isn't a lot of times I don't have a foster thrown in the mix, too. I am happy to have found an amazing number of people that share my passion, and have a common goal of helping people adopt! I have a career in medical sales, I enjoy boating, attempting to cook, spending time with family/friends and enjoying all of the fun festivals, restaurants, and shops Atlanta has to offer!

Ariane - Board Member - Vet Coordinator

Known as the "dog lady" to all of my friends, I have an affinity for all things four-legged. I believe animals are the truest soul you can meet. Being in rescue for many years, my husband and I have fostered every type of dog and cat imaginable, and love the day they find a perfect forever home! My favorite part is learning the traits of the foster dogs and matching them with the perfect person.

Rhonda - Board Member- Approvals Team

I was always one of "those" kids and I love all animals. I brought every hurt or sick bird, cat, or dog home. Actually, any animal I could hide under my shirt and carry into my room was subject to me bringing in to save. Yep, I even had a skunk for a while. I've had from large horses and Great Danes to the tiny little four legged muppets and have loved them all. I love fostering. There is nothing more rewarding then to see a hurt, scared, or just plain thrown away animal, learn they are safe and blossom into the great companion they were always meant to be. They love us unconditionally and I can do no less for them. Our animals deserve the best and at Releash Atlanta, that's exactly what they get!



DD - Officer of the Board - Event Coordinator

I am a mother of three and a pediatric nurse of many many years. I have a huge passion for animals and for rescue. I started fostering about two years ago and now I am a board member for Releash Atlanta! I enjoy coordinating our vetting, events and matching needs! 

Myia - Officer of the Board- Social Media & Marketing

I have had a passion and strong love for animals for my entire life. I grew up with all types of animals, from dogs and cats to snakes and gerbils, and started off working in the veterinary field at age 15. My affinity is for all animals, but specifically the ones who have endured mental or physical trauma. I believe one of the most beautiful things you can witness is the transformation of an animal once they learn to trust and love again. When I am not working at an Emergency and Referral Veterinary practice, I am with my two rescue pups, Bella and Chai, and usually a foster too!

Alex - CFO

Alex is a wealth consultant at Atlanta Capital Group but has a soft spot for helping animals as well! He is not only our CFO, but helps with events and fundraising too! We are so happy to have Alex as part of our team!


Helen - Match Coordinator - Team Lead

To my family, friends and co-workers I am known as the “animal lover”. Rescuing animals is a passion of mine. It can be stressful at times but I could never give up. I have 3 dogs and 2 cats. I also foster and pet sit so there is always a full house. I have a daughter who I hope to be a good example for, teach her to love and treat animals with respect. Show her the value of life. Animals love us unconditionally and we can do no less for them.
