Nou Her received her MFA from Fresno State's Creative Writing Program in 2020 when quarantine shut-down first began. During her years in the graduate program, she honed her writing skills while also enjoying teaching undergraduate students English Composition. You can listen to Nou reading some of her creative writing here and here.

She joined Valley Animal Center at the end of March 2021 after applying to an open position of the newly formed Marketing Department.

Throughout her childhood, Nou has owned some pets but she never understood how to properly care for them. As an adult now, her home is pet free until she feels ready for the commitment that comes with pet ownership. She never imagined she would one day be part of the animal care industry and every day is filled with her learning more and more about animals and animal care.

Nou enjoys interacting with all the shelter animals she has been fortunate to come into contact with and utilizes her writing skills wherever needed to help these animals find their furever homes.
