Sydney is a full-time student at the American Academy of Art in Chicago. She has been involved with animals since she was four, when her family adopted a weimaraner puppy named Gertrude. Sydney was also a volunteer at H.E.L.P for two years and tended to their shelter cats in Geneva’s PetSmart. She has been living in Geneva for 20 years and has two rescue dogs, Jack (pictured) and Oliver. In her spare time she likes to swim, weight lift, and of course walk her dogs!
