Meet Our Staff
Jennifer has loved caring for animals since childhood, and she’s had quite a few throughout the years. From cats to dogs, to birds, hamsters, fish, guinea pigs, and even a horse; she’s had more four-legged family members than two legged ones!
Jennifer has always known that she’s wanted a career caring for animals. So, after graduating with a degree in Social & Behavioral Sciences, she founded Jenn’s Pet TLC. Upon meeting her first client, Mia (a black lab/chow --and the first pooch you’ll see on our home page), she knew that this was the right path for her. After nearly a decade of professional animal care, Jennifer has learned quite a bit and continues to pursue education via invaluable resources such as Pet Sitters International. She’s endured more that her fair share of bumps, scratches, and bites. but she remains ever dedicated to the well-being of all her furry, feathered, and scaly friends!
Ryanhas supported Jenn’s Pet TLC since its inception as Jennifer’s husband, but he officially joined the company in 2016 after finding that he was unfulfilled by the daily corporate grind. He met the new challenges of the profession head-on; earning a certificate in pet first aid and CPR within months of coming on board and attending his first Pet Sitter’s International conference before his first year was out. He is Jenn's Pet TLC’s most prolific dog walker and wrangles multiple dog packs on a daily basis. However, Ryan has also taken on the company’s most difficult special needs challenges where his patient touch and gentle heart has won him many a friend among our shyest clients.
