A Maryland native, Panda was born and raised in Cambridge, where she developed her love for the Eastern Shore. Panda is a retired Puppy Bowl XIX player after suffering a tough overtime loss as a member of Team Ruff in 2022. At NWA her primary role is serving as a liaison with the canine community to ensure their caretakers pick up after them, so we all have healthy waterways to swim and fish in. When she is not out on the river paddling (or doggie paddling), she is in the office cleaning recyclables and making sure the staff and volunteers receive the proper appreciation for their hard work.
