Prior to joining the Shelter Medicine Program at the University of Florida, Keegan worked as a Senior Manager in Strategy, Research and Development at the ASPCA. During her time here in the Shelter Medicine Program, she has managed the collection, analysis and visualization of Florida’s brick and mortar animal shelters’ annual data and maintained a 98% collection rate or higher. She has also steered the disaster work their team does towards a more impactful strategy in order to help Florida animal shelters prepare for hurricane season and/or natural disasters by providing resources, access to training, professional and emergency contacts, and timely reminders. When she’s not swimming in data or contact databases, she enjoys being able to contribute to the team’s work in an artistic manner through photography, designing infographics, and providing shelters with helpful photography and marketing tips to get their long-stay animals adopted.

In addition to her work in animal welfare, Keegan owns a photography business, loves to cook, golf and throw extravagant, themed pet parties. She is in the beginning process of establishing a local (SC), collaborative nonprofit to help families get their pets spayed/neutered, able to get routine and emergency vet visits, and provide access to other resources needed to keep pets in homes and out of shelters. She lives in Goose Creek (Charleston), South Carolina with her husband, Eric, and their two rescue dogs (Gladys and Velma), two house kitties (Lady Esplen Goddess of Navalore and Meester Foofy) and three community cats they affectionately call their own (Tiger, Bella and Stinky Tinky Tater Tot).
