Weekly Series: Get To Know Your FADS Team!

Each week we’ll be asking the members of our Alamo Heights team a question to help you get to know us better!

We’re kicking off August with this question: “What is your Spirit Animal, and why?”


Grey Wolf because I am a leader of a great pack, but I also enjoy going ‘Lone Wolf’ from time to time.


Deer because they are delicate, graceful, have a strong intuition, and are determined with a gentle touch.


Alpha Wolf because I have an appetite for freedom within a pack while still thinking of what’s best for the group, I am guided by a strong instinct & intuition, and I have a passion to lead with compassion


Tortoise because it  grows and goes at its own speed. It is unencumbered by the “rat race” that tends to go on around it and simply lives life completely at its own pace. Some may see the the tortoise as slow moving but this creature which can live to be over 150 years old tend to be the smartest amongst its reptilian family members; outliving, and out growing all of them.

As a natural introvert the tortoise carries everything that it needs with it, creating a strong independence which allows it to engage with others out of desire instead of necessity.
I find that the tortoise as a spirit animal teaches the importance of finding peace and fulfillment through focusing on self and knowing that everything I could possibly need to live, thrive, and grow is, and has always been inside of me.


Vampire Bats are my spirit animal because they have a negative reputation and are commonly though of to hunt and feed alone, when in actuality they have a strong social structure.  This includes sharing meals with members of the colony that may have eaten less than others.  Because they feed on other animals they are adept in hunting and feeding undetected, and are the only bat species that can take flight from the ground by using hooked claws to jump.

So they are basically flying ninjas 🙂


 Honey Bee “Little but fierce”, Queen of her family, social, adaptable, makes life beautiful, hard worker, communicates through dancing,


 I’m a tiger! In the kingdom of spirit animals, the tiger puts a special emphasis on raw feelings and emotions. The tiger spirit animal symbolizes primal instincts, unpredictability, and ability to trust yourself.

By affinity with this spirit animal, you may enjoy dealing with life matters spontaneously, trusting your intuition and acting fast when needed.


Spirit animal: Cat
Why: Patience, waiting for the right moment to act. Independence, yet enjoying socializing. Curiosity, exploration of the unknown. Also naps, naps are purrfect


 I guess my spirit animal would be a dog because dogs have the best life, the get free rent, free food, and you get to sleep all day except when it’s time to play
