Sam – Kennel Manager/Property Supervisor
I am Sam, yes, Sam I am. My career here at VMC and BAC began March 2006. I have made many new friends, both two and four legged, while managing our boarding kennels. My sweetheart of over 17 years and I also operate our own construction business, Mark Brown Construction. Along with all our kennel pets, I care for my own bunch of pets which include dogs, cats, mini horses and even a mini goat. Any free time is spent training and spoiling my pets. I also love some REAL bluegrass music (especially banjo). I absolutely adore my God-babies and try to spend as much time as I can find to enjoy watching them grow up.
