Amanda P.

Amanda started with PPAH in 2018 as a Client Service Representative. Quickly after, we noticed her determination and intelligence, and she began taking on more and more responsibility. Amanda would like to continue to grow at PPAH and plans to go back to school for business management. While management is her goal, she loves the furry companions too! Amanda has friends in the equestrian field and has had to pleasure of witnessing equine husbandry practices, and has attended many equine shows!

At home, Amanda spends her time doting affection upon her 2 year old chihuahua mix named Oliver and her 7 month old domestic shorthair named Theo. If Amanda isn’t in Staten Island you’ll find her with my favorite mouse in Disney World!


Gianna C.

Gianna is currently a student in the CSI Nursing Program, working towards her Bachelors of Science in Nursing. Though she may be studying human medicine, animals have always held a special place in her heart. Her favorite part of the day is going home to her 4 dogs; Bandit- a Yorkie, Daisy- a Yorkie mix, Sophie- a teacup Yorkie and Daphne- a Chihuahua… as well as her kitten Harley. Once she finishes school, she hopes to end up as a nurse in either a critical care or labor and delivery setting, and then continue on her education journey to become a Nurse Practitioner!


Gabriella L.

Gabriella has been with the PPAH staff for several years now, having started with us when she was only 16 years old. Talk about a go-getter! Gabby plans on becoming a high school English teacher, as well as getting a degree that allows her to teach special needs children. She is currently enrolled in the College of Staten Island to obtain her bachelors in education. At home, she has one dog named Mocha, an adorable Shih Tzu Mix. When she isn’t learning how to education the next generation of Staten Islanders, she likes hanging out with her friends and family, reading poetry, photography, and taking her dog on long walks.
