Ornella Varchi, Special Events Coordinator
Ornella received her undergraduate degree in Psychology from USF and her MBA from University of Tampa. But her true love is for animals, with a special passion for dogs. Her soft spot is for the ones that come from a sad past or have special needs. Before taking on the position of Special Events Coordinator, Ornella served as our Volunteer Manager and, for 6 years before joining our staff, was a Gold Shirt volunteer.
Ornella has shared her home and life with a variety of fosters that have taught her about the true meaning of strength and courage. She currently has 5 beautiful and amazing mixed breed dogs, a wonderful husband and two children who make her smile and laugh everyday. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, shopping, and spending time with family and friends!
