Meet the Founder and CEO
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”!
Meet Our Team
Dog Care Professional
Hi, I’m Chris. Some people call me by my call sign, Caveman. I love being part of Fetch Fido and supporting my son’s exciting small business! I have been involved with dog and horse caretaking my entire life. My family owned several dogs throughout my childhood, mostly labradors and jack russell terriers. We also owned several thoroughbred horses which were shown at major horse shows along the east coast, so being involved in loving and caring for dogs is a treat for me. I am a University of Virginia graduate (Wa-hoo-wa!) and served in the Marine Corps as an Officer/Pilot for 28 years. I had the pleasure of commanding twice in Pensacola as squadron commander of HT-18 and MATSG-21. We love this area, especially the beach, and decided to plant roots here. I now work as a Simulator Instructor prepping our new pilots to serve our nation, which is very rewarding! In my free time, I love spending time and laughing with my family, hanging with my dogs, Rusty, Lucy, and Lulu, lifting weights, swimming, going to the beach, or reading a good book. At Fetch Fido, I act as the Strategic Planner and run the weekly IPR meetings, but my favorite role is supporting the Fetch Fido family by caring for the wonderful dogs in our care.
Operations and Events Manager
Dog Care Professional
Hi, everyone! My name is Shelley and I love being a part of the Fetch Fido team and working with my son, the founder and CEO of the company! I grew up moving around a lot as a military kid, married a 46 helicopter pilot in the Marine Corps and continued to move around for many years as we grew our family! After receiving a masters degree in education, I taught everything from first grade through fourth grade and also, had the pleasure of homeschooling my children throughout elementary school. I also really enjoy planning parties and events. A big part of my children’s birthday each year was creating a fun birthday theme together. These skills served me well in many projects, but especially when planning both my daughter and son’s weddings. For Fetch Fido, I oversee operations, plan special events and prepare for some marketing events, such as the Wedding Expo, Barktoberfest, and our annual Thanksgiving Collaboration Give Away! Additionally, I adore helping families care for their pets because I have been an animal lover my whole life. I have a difficult time walking past a dog downtown without saying hello! Over the years, I have owned many precious dogs and each one has profoundly blessed my life.

Hey everyone, my name is Lauren! I’m so excited to be joining the Fetch Fido family! I was born and raised here in Pensacola and I’m currently going to UWF for my bachelor’s degree in political science. My little golden fur baby Luna has been my entire world for the past four years! We love going to the park, walking on the local trails for some fresh air, and taking a dip in the pool! I have over 5 years of top-notch customer service experience, and I’m excited to use my skills to give you and your pups the best care possible. I’m joining the team as your new office manager, and I will be here for any questions you have! I can’t wait to meet all of you loving dog parents at future events!
Design and Marketing Director
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 daughter, 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. I have worked in the DoD Contracting space, until I had my daughter this past year. Now I'm living the dream of raising my baby and helping small businesses, like Fetch Fido, thrive with branding and design. I work to communicate Fetch Fido's heart and story. Can’t wait to introduce myself to y’all at our future Fetch Fido events!! Come say hi!
Hi! I’m Katie and am super stoked about being part of the Fetch Fido team! Currently, I work at West Florida Baptist Academy teaching middle and high school! In my free time, I love to spend time with my family and friends and, of course, my two puppies, Maci and Marley. They are both miniature dachshunds although one is not so “mini” 😂. In 2018, I graduated from Pensacola Christian College with an undergraduate in History with a double minor; and in 2020, I graduated with a masters in Educational Leadership. With my formal education and love for my puppies, it has instilled a desire and interest within me to work with Fetch Fido in handling their finances. I work to ensure that our team has the means necessary to continue serving you!

Hi Guys! 👋 My name is Connie and I’m thrilled to be a new member of the Fetch Fido Family! 🎉 I’ve been married 35 years to a wonderful guy named Ricky, and we moved to Pensacola last October from SW Louisiana. We have 3 adult children, and currently 2 pups, a snake and lots of fish!😍 Wesley, our English Springer Spaniel, and Nero, our Husky/Lab rescue from Husky Haven of FL, are loving the Florida life! ☀️ Dogs have been part of my family for as long as I can remember. Several years ago I discovered the world of transporting rescue dogs and helped drive as few as one or as many as a mom and 10 pups to their receiving rescues, fosters, or forever homes. Ricky and I have rescued, fostered, and adopted pups in need, while still having our own fur kids. It wasn’t always easy, but definitely rewarding. ❤️ In my “previous life,” I have been a registered pharmacist and a massage therapist. With my love for dogs, I am currently studying to become a Certified Canine Massage Therapist. Just as massage can benefit people, it can benefit our 4 legged family members. Their quality of life can improve through stretching, joint mobilization, flexibility, and a healthier immune system. They can have an improved cardiovascular system and stress/anxiety reduction. I hope to be able to offer these services to our clients after I complete my study and hands on workshop in Toledo, OH this Spring. 🎉🥰 I am loving meeting all of the wonderful pups in the Fetch Fido Family and spending special time with all of them!🥰🎉❤️
