Chief Happiness Officer

About Nova

Nova was born and raised in Kansas City, and she is the adopted pet of Jana Haecherl. Before she met Jana, she was picked up by the law for being a stray and did some time in the big house while waiting for a family to adopt her. When she’s not spreading joy and happiness with her waggy tail, Nova enjoys running, giving kisses, doing zoomies, chewing bones, exploring the wilderness, and napping by the fireplace.

What Nova does at RNL

Nova represents the many furry friends that visit our office. When she's on the clock, she spends her time spreading joy, happiness, and laughter around the office by being a goofy wiggle-butt and giving kisses. You can often find her begging while someone is eating a snack or dozing in the sunshine in a side room.

What's the best meal you've ever had?

Raw salmon.

Name three things you can't live without.

Cookies, toys, and my Benebone.

What's something we wouldn't know by looking at you?

I can defluff a stuffed toy in under ten seconds.
