Ornella Varchi

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!
