About Tela

Tela is a silly, ditzy, artzy-fartzy kind of girl and maybe a little bit dramatic at times! She moved to North Carolina in March of last year from Texas. She will always be a Texas girl at heart, but absolutely loves it here, and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. Tela never meets a stranger and always sees the best in people. One day when Tela grows up she would love to be a hair stylist and makeup artist. For now she works at Surf City Pet Lodge where she gets to love on animals all day. In her free time she enjoys spending time with her amazing fiancé, family and friends, being a beach bum, painting and going to church! Tela can’t wait to see what amazing things God has in store for her and Ray!
