Kristen has always had a passion for pets and began working in a veterinary clinic at the age of 15, which lead her on the path to a career of caring for pets. After 13 years working in veterinary practice as a Registered Veterinary Technician, she decided to focus her passion of caring for pets in a different way. After years of researching, planning, dreaming and looking for the right property, she and her partner, Michael, opened Companions Pet Resort in December 2015.
Kristen understands that boarding your pet can be stressful for both parent and pet and is dedicated to providing the best care possible for her furry guests during their stay at Companions. Although Michael is behind the scenes, all our doggy guests see him every night for their bedtime let-out & tuck-in.
Kristen and Michael also share their home with daughter – Everleigh, dogs – Archie, George and Andy, cats – Marty and Eli, and Pickles the bunny. In her spare time Kristen enjoys spending time with family and friends, horseback riding and watching movies.
Clara has always been a pet lover and joined the Companions team in May 2016 with previous pet care experience. Clara is also an avid photographer and divides her time between caring for the furry guests at Companions and photographing weddings. Clara enjoys combining her two passions of pets and photography by volunteering her time photographing adoptable pets for rescue groups.
Clara enjoys spending her down time with Christopher, Aimee, Teyha and their furry family members Farley the dog and three kitties – Quinzel, Almond & Minnow. Clara’s favourite food is anything smothered in caramel!
Amy grew up in the small town of Crampton, Ontario. Amy has always enjoyed spending time with pets and worked at previous boarding facilities before joining the Companions team in August 2016.
When she is not caring for the furry guests at Companions, Amy can be found relaxing at home with her two rescue kitties Hanson & Ivy. Amy loves spending time with her family and friends enjoying the outdoors – camping, canoeing and hanging out around the bonfire.
Maddy joined the Companions team in summer of 2016 and absolutely loves it. She has always had a love for animals and enjoys getting to know all the unique personalities of all the guests at Companions.
Maddy has three fur babies of her own, Patches the JRTxPug Mix and her two tabby mixes – Smokey and Bandit. In her spare time Maddy enjoys a variety of sports and taking Patches (a cat who thinks he’s a dog and insists on joining) for walks.
