Rhiana moved with her family to the Wood River Valley in 1989 from the Lake Tahoe, CA. area. She fell in love with Idaho immediately and calls our great valley her “forever home”. She also loves and married a Wood River High School classmate Michael Mitchell who owns a successful, local stone masonry company. Rhiana is the primary health insurance agent at Wood River Insurance for the past 10 years. Together they adopted Pete from ASWRV in 2006. They say he is the biggest blessing to their daily life – teaching them about patience, kindness, silliness, stubbornness and all-encompassing love! Rhiana has always been an outspoken advocate of the mission of our great shelter. She has helped quite a few friends find their perfect companion at ASWRV and is looking forward to being a community advocate both verbally and in action for this new phase of growth for our shelter.
