Kelly grew up on the beautiful south shores of Long Island, New York. After earning her BFA in Graphic Design, Kelly dedicated several years to working at universities in an administrative and registrar role and loved getting to know new students and helping them navigate the university systems. 

 

When Kelly was growing up, her mother had a dog walking and pet sitting service, and Kelly would often tag along. One of the most powerful lessons she learned from watching her mother work was how to be more than "just" a dog walker: how to treat each animal as an individual, maintain open and frequent communication with pet parents, and how to make sure the door was locked every time! Kelly decided to follow in her mother's footsteps and find a path that allowed her skills as an animal caretaker to flourish.  Kelly is excited to support our clients, patients, and community members!

Kelly also serves as the Communication Steward for Cultivate Wellbeing, Veterinary Cannabis, and the Colorado School of Animal Massage
