Hi, I’m Becki. I’ve lived in South Jersey practically my entire life aside from the two years I spent in Florida. After having my wonderful son, I decided to come back home to be with family. I grew up always having at least two dogs in my household, but usually there were three! I also grew up with cats, birds, guinea pigs, and even a couple reptiles. A house never felt like a home without an animal! They were all part of the family. This sparked my love of animals and made me decide to become a professional pet groomer. Pet grooming has been my career for 5 years now. Being around animals everyday is what I live for, and caring for them is a passion of mine. I currently live with 3 dogs, 4 cats, and 2 parakeets. Working for Zoo Sitters and caring for pets is my way to give back to animals who do nothing but care for us. Aside from animals, my other passion is writing. I am currently enrolled in school for my Bachelors degree in Creative Writing! My ultimate goal is to be a novelist as well as publish children’s books about animals. I can’t wait to meet you and your fur babies!
Hello, I’m Betty. I have always felt a connection with animals and have shared my home with hunting and show dogs but my specialty and passion lies specifically with cats and birds. The crew calls me the Cat Whisperer! I’ve attended numerous Pet Sitters International conferences where I take continuing education classes in cat care, bird care, pet nutrition and geriatric pet care. I have also furthered my pet care education by taking additional seminars in pet nutrition, have extensive training in cat behavior as well as parrot care. I have attended the Pet Industry’s trade show as well to keep up to date on the latest products for my clients. In 2016, I also became Zoo Sitters' Marketing Director, responsible for all marketing efforts in both Atlantic and Cape May Counties. I still pet sit for my cat clients in Cape May County as well.
My name is Caitlin and I'm a Field Manager in Atlantic County. I have lived in New Jersey all my life and now reside in Pleasantville. I grew up with animals and loved every second of it! I have cared for so many types of animals throughout my life, including: hermit crabs, fish, geckos, guinea pigs, parakeets, rabbits, cats, dogs, ducks, chickens, guinea hens, goats, pigs, horses, cows, and more! I grew up in a family that always viewed caring for animals as a part of life. We've always rescued stray cats, got them spayed/ neutered, and made sure they had their shots. As a young girl, I volunteered at a no-kill animal shelter. I helped raise money, food, and item donations for the animals at the shelter as a project for my Silver Award in Girl Scouts. I have worked at two dog kennels/dog daycare facilities, as an assistant trainer and caretaker. I spent most of my time on horse farms as a girl. I've trained and showed in hunter-jumper, and then in dressage and eventing. Animals are an essential part of my life and I consider them “friends” and “family members” rather than just pets. Outside of my animal life, I work a corporate job, so I understand the importance of outstanding customer service! I am excited to meet you and your furry (or feathered) friends and to put your mind at ease that they will be well cared for while you are away!
Hi, I'm Kathie! A resident of CMCH and Wildwood Crest for nearly 20 years, I am originally from West Chester, PA, where I received a BA in Liberal Studies with a minor in Psychology. Married with one son, I am an animal lover to the core. My 100lb. lab and Maine coon can attest to that! From an early age, through my teens, I worked on various farms, riding and caring for horses and livestock, always returning home to a resident dog and several cats. I worked for many years as a recreation therapist and a marketing and admissions director within long-term care and rehabilitation facilities. Most recently, I served as the board secretary at Cape Christian Academy, assisting with their admissions and development. While I consider myself a people person, I've always been happiest in the presence of animals, my first love. Walking my dog Indy is the highlight of my day. Both of us, happy to be outside, getting exercise, we cover a lot of ground, usually over 3 miles. In spite of this busy regimen, I have plenty of energy and enthusiasm to go the distance walking or caring for your dog with the same passion and devotion.
Hi, I'm Kat! I'm originally from Mickleton, NJ, where my love for animals began! Growing up, we always had pets, including a basset hound, cats, birds, fish, and rabbits. I moved to North Cape May in 2015 where I now live with my husband, two stepdaughters, and our lab mix Abby! My previous animal experience includes volunteering with cats at a Petco store through the Camden County Animal Shelter. I worked adoption hours where we met with prospective adopters, along with taking care of the kittens and cats staying at Petco. My hectic schedule at the time (I worked at CBS News in NYC and commuted from South Jersey) took me away from volunteering, but now that I live in Cape May County full time, I wanted to continue working with animals in my free time. My dog Abby is my reason for wanting to work with animals. I know how much I treasure her, and I would only leave her in the best care possible, so I would like to provide that for others! I look forward to working with you!
My name is Kimberly and I live in Wildwood Crest. I moved here in 2007 from Manassas, Virginia with my husband and our 2 cats and fish. As a child, our home always had some kind of “fur running around” as my mother likes to say. Most days consisted of waking up with a kitty fast asleep in my bed, taking the dogs for a walk, and calming down a squawking green amazon parrot until I shared with him whatever I was eating at the time. I was born and raised in Conshohocken, PA where I had the challenge of walking our 3 dogs up and down steep hills through all kinds of weather. I loved every minute of it! I also have a Bachelor of Science in Medical Laboratory Science and work in the Clinical Laboratory at Cape Regional Medical Center. I am a volunteer with Friends of Cape May Wildlife Refuge and I participate in various charity walks. When I am not working or volunteering, you can usually find me walking the beach, riding my bike, or gardening. I am excited to be able to bring to you my love of dog walking and pet sitting. I've had extensive training in loose leash dog walking techniques and pack management.
Hi, my name is LeEtte and I'm a Field Manager in Cape May County. Originally from Warminster, PA, I moved to Cape May County in 2001. Animals are, and always have been, my purest joy in life! After nearly 10 years in the cleaning and hospitality field, I woke up one morning and realized that the brightest part of my work day was enjoying the company of my clients' pets while I cleaned up after them. My circle of animal friends and family include dogs and cats of all sizes, parrots, chinchillas, guinea pigs, sugar gliders, hermit crabs, turtles, lizards, and fish! My childhood dream was to become a veterinarian and live on a farm with my small army of large breed dogs. I have every intention on furthering my pet education. Your pets safety and well being are my first concern, but earning their trust and friendship is also immensely important to me! I'm looking forward to meeting your pets and making your day a little less stressful.
Hey there, I'm Mary! I'm a social worker by day (and night), but animals have always held a soft spot in my heart. I have grown up with a variety of pets: guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, mice, fish, newts, hermit crabs, birds, cats, and dogs. I have a tendency to stop traffic to help turtles cross the street. I have had lost and stray dogs find me to take them to a safer place. I view my pets as my kids. I have a dog, three cats, a guinea pig, and a skinny pig. It's only a matter of time before I expand my family by four paws real soon. You can trust that I will treat your fur baby as if they were mine. I will go above and beyond to make your pet feel as happy, loved, and well cared for while you are away.
Hi, my name is Michelle. I was born and raised in Media, Pennsylvania. Growing up we always had pets: dogs, cats, mice, birds, reptiles. You name it, we had them! I couldn’t imagine life without animals in my family. In 1988, my husband and I moved to Ocean City where we had 5 children. We always had a dog and/or cat running around our home. After my husband passed away, I returned to work as an Administrative Assistant for a school. Our pets always have seen our family through some difficult times and have brought us so much joy and love. In 2018, my Beagle, Milo, and I moved to Absecon to take care of my elderly mother and I found Zoo Sitters. Working for Zoo Sitters is a dream job for me because of my love of animals and because of the quality of training and support they offer. I will do my best to care for your pets as if they were my own so that you have peace of mind when you are away from home. I look forward to meeting your pets and working with you!
Hi, My name is Samantha! I grew up in Linwood and moved right next door to Somers Point with my husband. I have two Australian Shepherds and a mixed cat which are my fur babies. I’ve always had a passion for caring for animals. Throughout my childhood I had two cats (Himalayan and Siamese), and two dogs (Mini Pin and Husky mix). I also took interest in other animals such as farm animals, reptiles and fish. Aside from working at Zoo Sitters, I'm also a bookkeeper which allows me to help care for my animals as well as help others. In the past, I have worked for corporate and fast paced industries so I understand the stress of daily life. I’m so excited to be able to give the care and comfort you and your pets deserve.
Hello. My name is Sherri. I grew up in Buena Vista Township, NJ and moved back to the area in 2016. I am married with three great kids and our two fur babies, Roxi and Rikki. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and work as a Contracts Administrator. I graduated from the Veterinary Technology program at Camden County College in 2010 to pursue a career change from the corporate world to care for animals. After many years working in the corporate world, I realized that the best job in the world would be where I could work with animals. My entire life, I have been surrounded by cats and dogs and I love every minute of it. I could never imagine a day without having a fur baby. I have also had a bearded dragon, a newt, gold fish in an outdoor pond, aquarium fish and a guinea pig. I am excited to help in taking care of your pets. Our pets are loved members of the family and should be treated as such.
