Hi! My name is Jen and I am so thrilled to be a part of the amazing Pet Gal team! I have been passionate about helping and caring for people and animals for as long as I can remember. It is incredibly exciting to have a job doing what you love!
I was born in Southern California and relocated here with my family before I started high school. I graduated from the University of Texas in Austin, where I have resided for the past 20 years. I have had many jobs, including band management, service industry, and “the office job” at an insurance brokerage. For the past 3 years, I was the General Manager for a restaurant in town. These experiences have all taught me so many things, including how much people, including myself, love, care for, and miss their animals while they are away. It is an amazing thing to be able to go care for and play with these animals and give their loving owners peace of mind.
I had my very own baby, Maxwell, until last year. He was the most amazing, loving boy and loved to chase anything, show off his tricks, and swim anywhere and everywhere! He had the best spirit and girlfriend in the world, my niece, Truvy. She is the beautiful girl in the photo with me! I love to help teach dogs and their owners how to do tricks, too! Photography is another of my passions, so I hope you enjoy the photos that I send you! =)
