Meet the Team
Walk, Wag, 'N More strives to stay connected with our clients. You are not a number to us! Laura will be at each meet and greet accompanied with our other team members. We are always just a phone call away! You are able to reach the person that is in your home caring for your pets. We don't make you jump through hoops trying to reach your own pet sitter! We build relationships with our clients and want you to feel connected to your pet(s) while you're away.
I have had animals my whole life and have been volunteering at local animal shelters since high school. I attended William Smith College and moved to the Buffalo area upon graduation in 2003. I adopted a dog my junior year and knew at that moment that I wanted to work with animals for the rest of my life and have been working with them ever since! I have worked in a doggie daycare, as management in a pet retail environment, and as a professionally certified groomer. I am pet first aid certified and am a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College. I also have experience caring for birds including hand feeding. I have taken care of numerous small animals including hamsters, guinea pigs, and chinchillas. I am happily married to my best friend, Kevin, and we have two beautiful children, Erin and Brendan. My home is also shared with a rescue dog and cat, Kylie and Georgie.

I have always loved animals, growing up with dogs and cats, chinchillas and gerbils. My husband and I rescued a Siamese mix kitten from the SPCA and he was a joy to have. I've been volunteering at Ten Lives Club cat shelter and fostered a mama cat and her 6 kittens. My children, husband and I loved raising them to be healthy, playful kittens and getting them adopted to great homes. I've enjoyed walking my sister's and friend's dogs and really love taking care of our client's pets for Walk, Wag, 'N More!

From a very young age I have always felt a strong bond with all animals. My parents gently instilled compassion and respect for all living things and showed my brothers, sister, and I how to learn from nature. My wife and I have three amazing kitties: Rowyco (11), Princess Cheese Puff (11), and Sebastian (8). They all show us unconditional love; even when we come home from pet-sitting smelling like dogs and other cats....we get the once-over and then the forgiving snuggling begins! Previously, I have worked in a Veterinary Clinic and volunteered at the SPCA. I am certified in canine and feline CPR and continue to learn about animal science while being my sister's study partner in her Veterinary Technician courses. Walk, Wag, 'N More gave me a wonderful opportunity to join the team. I am aware that not many can say they have a job that they truly love. I am so fortunate to be able to say that I do, for, I get to play with my friends everyday!
'Animals are reliable, many full of love, true in their affections, predictable in their actions, grateful and loyal. Difficult standards for people to live up to.' ~Alfred A. Montapert

I have loved animals for as long as I remember that is why working for Walk Wag N More is the perfect part time job for me!! I absloutely love dogs and I have two sweet beagles Sadie and Molly that keep me busy! I also volunteer for ABC Basset Rescue assisting with fostering and other events as they need help. I love walking, playing with, feeding and all the tasks that go along with taking care of the animals!! It is very rewarding and a lot of fun!

I have always had pets. We had 2 Labradors and 2 rescue cats growing up. From a young age I knew I wanted to help animals, which led to me wanting to be a veterinarian most of my life. I was going to UB as bio med major when I decided that I no longer wanted to be a vet. I decided I wanted to help animals through a healthy life style and decided to go into business on my own. I currently own a natural pet food store in the village of Lancaster. Through my store I hope to show people the importance of high quality food and supplements for the overall well being of their pets. I plan on going back to school to get a pet nutrition degree once the store starts doing better and I have the time to. I currently own a Mini Dachshund, Beans, who enjoys going to the store with me when I'm not walking dogs.
