Hello! My name is Samantha, I’m originally from Foxborough, Massachusetts, home of the New England Patriots. I spent most of my 31 years in Massachusetts with some time spent in NYC and New Jersey. I moved to Austin during the summer of 2014 to be a Search Engine Marketing Manager.

Similar to Susan, after one year in the role, I decided to follow my passion for animals. I’ve worked at Austin Pets Alive! as a Cat Adoption Counselor, and now I’ve been giving an amazing opportunity to provide pet services with The Pet Gal, where we treat your pets as our own!

While growing up, my family had all different types of pets: cats, dogs, chickens, tarantulas, fish and many more! I now have a clowder of kitty fur babies: Franki, Beans and BIlly. When I’m not working or playing with my cats, I love to watch football and play adult dodgeball with ASSC.
