To the Editor:

I’m writing to tell you how much I enjoyed the article, “Animal lover finds her calling” by Andrew Hollins in the Jan. 2 edition. I found the article very interesting and entertaining.

It was uplifting to see how Alyssa Ellison brought herself from the ground up. Starting from welding and bartending, to being in the Washington, D.C. Humane Society, to finally doing what she had in the back of her mind since she was a kid, which is law enforcement.

It was nice to see that she could care for animals and help others at the same time.

Thank you for running this article. I enjoyed it.
