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 college with a degree in Social & Behavioral Sciences, she founded Jenn’s Pet TLC. Upon meeting her first client, Mia (look for her in the gallery, RIP) she knew that this was the right path for her.
After a decade of professional animal care, Jennifer has learned quite a bit and continues to pursue education via invaluable resources from such places as Pet Sitters International (PSI) and Prosperous Pet Business Academy. In 2019 she earned her Certified Professional Pet Sitter (CPPS) credential through PSI and plans to maintain her accreditation through continued education. 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.
Jessica was born and raised in Minneapolis, MN, and moved to the Bay Area in 2015. Growing up, her family has always had a family dog as well as other pets. For Jessica's 5th birthday, her parents brought her to the Animal Humane Society to adopt her first bunny rabbit, Cotton. That began Jessica's love for pocket pets. Today Jessica has 5 fur babies (three Guinea pigs, one Rabbit, and one family dog.
Because of Jessica's love of animals, she has always found herself helping out her friends and family members by petsitting for them. In 2018 one of her friends suggested that she should consider doing this as a part-time job.
Jessica met Jenn's Pet TLC owner, Jennifer, through a mutual friend. After numerous encounters, Jessica inquired about Jenn's business and ultimately decided to apply for a chance to join Jenn's team. It just made sense to Jessica to expand her love and care for animals by caring for other people's fur babies.
