Asha Gangolli


In 2014, Asha said goodbye to her native Windy City and two rescue kitties to start a new adventure with Alabama Ballet. Birmingham quickly found a way into her heart and this book provided a wonderful way to give back to the community she loves. When not dancing Asha can be found sipping coffee or a cocktail, learning to master the art of southern living.

Kay Simon


Kay is an avid animal lover and long time supporter of rescue efforts in Birmingham. After becoming more involved with the Alabama Ballet over the last couple of years, she saw a wonderful opportunity to form a collaboration with the organizations that contribute so much to the city. Kay is a loving mom to two rescue dogs and two cats (and the aunt to the other rescues of the neighborhood who know they can always go to Kay's for a good meal).

Connie Collum


Connie, specializing in Fine Art Pet Photography and pets with their family since 2009, has gained recognition for her ability to capture real, unforgettable moments with an artistic flair. Having donated her talents to rescue organizations in the past, Connie and her vision made her the perfect fit to photograph the images for the book. Connie lives in Trussville, Al with her husband Craig and four dogs: Kaylyn, Dillon, Lily, and Sienna.
