Sonedra is thrilled to combine her business background with her love of animals as our Director of Administration. She graduated from Florida Atlantic University with an MBA and Bachelor’s degrees in Finance and Management. Sonedra is a native south Floridian who speaks fluent German as her parents immigrated from a small village near Vienna, Austria. She volunteered with several rescues, such as The Florida Humane Society, Laps of Love, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League and Tri-County Animal Rescue. She enjoys traveling and snuggling with her adopted fur babies – a Husky/GSD, Boxer/Lab and a very grumpy senior kitty.

Myers, and Gainesville. She is the proud mother of two fur children as well, Chief and McMurphy, who are both rescue dogs.

Frank worked as an animal caretaker for wildlife and other animals at a Nature Center and Wildlife Animal Hospital for 5 years prior to joining the Coco-Park team. His love for animals came to him at a young age as he was that kid on the block who took in all the stray animals! His current best friend is a Jack Russell terrier named Mylee. He enjoys outdoor activities such as kayaking, biking, camping and scuba diving, as well as volunteering at Gumbo Limbo Nature Center in the turtle rehab center.
Briana joined the Coco-Park family in July 2018. She recently graduated from Florida Atlantic University with her Bachelors in Health Science and is now studying to be an EMT. Briana loves spending time with her rescue Boxer mix, Mande, who has been her best friend for 6 years! She has always had a passion for animals from a very young age. She also enjoys traveling and has been to many of the islands such as Turks & Caicos, Bahamas, Puerto Rico and more! Briana is looking forward to meeting you and your fur babies!
Brittany was born and raised in Boca Raton. Her passion for animals was something her family will tell you she was born with. She began volunteering at a local animal shelter at the age of 11 after her family couldn’t take her bringing home one more stray puppy, kitten, squirrel or raccoon. Animals in need have just always had a way of being drawn to Brittany, and she always knew that this was the path she was destined to be on. Brittany has now been working with for over 20 years and in veterinary medicine for over 12 years. Brittany spends her free time working with Meals on Wheels to make house calls with their Veterinarian for low income families, breeding ball pythons, and hanging out with her family of 4 human kids (not counting the hubby), 1 dog, 4 cats, 9 snakes, and two tortoises!
Ally has always felt a strong connection with animals ever since she was a little girl. She was determined to make this her career as she strongly feels it is our responsibility as humans to take care of animals in need because nobody else can. Ally really loves her job, especially being around adorable furry faces, and continues to learn more every day with the hope of becoming a Veterinary Technician in the future. Ally shares her life with a beautiful little dachshund mix named Sophia Loren.
