Meet Our Team!
Hi! My name is Chris,and I am a lifelong animal lover who has always had a soft spot for dogs. I grew up moving around the east coast with my Marine Corps pilot dad, my mom, sister, and we always had a dog as part of the family. When I moved away to college at FSU, I decided to work for Rover to make some extra money and to enjoy some dog bonding.:) I really loved the experience! Leo, my goldendoodle, became a favorite companion during my second degree; he went with me everywhere I could take him. I realized how difficult it was to find someone to take care of Leo the way I would and thought about the fact that I’m sure a lot of people struggle with finding quality dog care givers they can trust. I graduated with a degree in Entrepreneurship and Finance. My dream has always been to use that education to run my own business. I began working as a Finance Analyst at a HR Company, but I decided to leave the corporate world and do one of the things I love most: spend time loving on dogs. My goal is to offer busy dog parents who adore their dogs a stress-free day or vacation knowing their dog is not being ignored or alone. Customer service, kindness, and trustworthiness is very important when you are entrusting someone with two of your most important assets: your dog and your home. I am offering you a premier service, one that you can count on. I will do my best to always be timely, professional, loving, responsive and communicative with you about your pup’s visit with me. I will treat your baby like family. I am excited to share my lifelong passion of animals with the Pensacola community and hope you will sign up to “join the pack”!
Chris is a retired Marine Corps Officer/Pilot with extensive leadership and aviation experience in the defense services of our nation. His formal education includes multiple masters degrees. Chris is excited about working for Fetch Fido as a Dog Care Professional as he has been involved with dog and horse caretaking his entire life. His family owned several dogs throughout his childhood, mostly Labradors and Jack Russel Terriers. In addition, his family also owned several thoroughbred horses which they would show at major horse shows along the east coast. He grew up caring for both dogs and horses, and his love of animals was ingrained in him from his earliest memories.
Anna grew up surrounded by animals of all kinds on her family's farm in rural Missouri and has loved furry friends ever since. Her favorite childhood pets were the family goats and her black lab Tipper. After graduating from Florida State University with a Bachelor’s degree in English, she moved to Pensacola, Florida, where she now works for Jeweler's Trade Shop. Her favorite part of living in Pensacola is going to the downtown area because there are so many dog friendly establishments. She is Mom to Leo Russel, a goldendoodle who loves walks, runs, couch cuddles, and park time.
Shelley has a masters degree in education and after retiring from teaching she was thrilled to be working for Fetch Fido to help families care for their pets. Shelley has been an animal lover her whole life. She has always enjoyed hanging around dogs in particular and has a difficult time walking past a dog downtown without saying hello! She has had many precious dogs throughout the years and feels like dogs are a wonderful creation of God- they are always excited to see you and love just hanging out! Shelley currently has two wonderful goldendoodles named Lucy and LuLu. They bring her endless smiles and cuddles!
Hi I’m Grayson! I am a dog lover, book reader, trail hiker, farmer’s market enthusiast, beach lounger, sudoku queen, coffee cup hoarder, amateur* (emphasis on amateur) baker, inspirational quote junky who loves to fill my days watching witty British movies, drinking coffee with my people and family, eating good food with my husband and snuggling my doodle, Luna. I’m the type of person who would be starstruck by Tim Keller, Queen Elizabeth II, and Joanna Gaines over the other rich and famous, if you catch my drift. In 2019, I graduated from Auburn University with my undergraduate and masters degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering and now work for an engineering company in Huntsville, AL. My formal education and passion for people and pups are what interests me in working with Fetch Fido as Innovation Analyst. I work to ensure you and your fur baby receive the best care by analyzing our content, systems and operations. Can’t wait to introduce myself to y’all at our future Fetch Fido events!! Come say hi!
