25 Women in Leadership: Jennifer Filley
August 13, 2021
Jennifer Filley is the operations manager at TAPS.
TAPS has animals that have been there a couple of days and some animals that have been there a couple of years. “Obviously, the pandemic hit every business and every way of life and that was not any different for us.” she said. “We saw a lot of increase in numbers in people who may be needed to surrender because of the financial hardships.”
“Walking down the kennel runs specifically where the dogs live and seeing how much the staff and the volunteers care for the animals…so for however long their here they have you know a warm place in the winter, a cool place in the summer. They’ve got toys. They’ve got bones. They’ve got food. They’ve got shelter and they are safe.”
Filley says the animals are loved and are cared for. She also says a good leader is willing to put in the work themselves. “They respect the team that they have because they have done the work themselves or are willing to do the work themselves.”
