Owner/Operator

Hello pet parents and pet enthusiasts of Rochester! It is an absolute pleasure to be serving such an incredible community filled with so many animal lovers! I was born and raised right here in Rochester, NY, and have aspired to offer exceptional care for both the pets and their humans in this area, for what feels like a lifetime. From Kennel Attendant to Dog Daycare Team Member, to earning my degree as a Canine Behavior Trainer, to a Manager with Rochester Dog Walkers, I knew my career would involve caring for the pets of Rochester. On my first day with RDW, in May 2019, I knew I was “home”. Acquiring RDW has been my greatest accomplishment, though will not be my last! Thank you for supporting our mission to provide exceptional in home pet care to the pets of Rochester! Without you, this would still be just another “dream”.

I was born and raised in Rochester, NY and have lived in this area most of my life. I live with my sweet Charlie Bear-180 pounds of absolute pure English Mastiff lap dog! I love to travel and spend time with my nieces. Fun fact: I’ve been to Australia many times! I’ve spent time with wombats and koalas and even kissed a kangaroo and a dingo! No matter what part of the world they are in, I love every animal! I can’t wait to meet your fur babies!

Team Lead/Pet Care Specialist

Hi! I grew up in Fairport NY and have lived in the area most of my life. I’ve been an avid dog fan since I was young, and developed an interest in dog training and sports. I have a Border Collie puppy Mirk who is I spoil to death, which means lots of fetch and play! We are training for agility and he is going to try sheep herding once he’s a little older. My interests outside of work include bass guitar, web development, cooking and reading. My fun fact is I used to have a ferret as a pet!

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

Hello and Good Day! I’m Deb, and I was born and raised in Upstate NY, specifically Queensbury, NY, K – 12.

I grew up with 3 Old English Sheepdogs!

If my home is ever ginormous, I’d love to own a Bernese Mountain Dog. Otherwise, I’d be thrilled to enjoy another Old English Sheepdog, or a Newfoundland!

A little more about me: I’m a mechanical engineer by degree, and to that end, I especially favor packaging engineering.

A fun fact about me: I’m both a volunteer and professional clarinetist, as well as a volunteer and professional clarinet instructor, of all ages!

My most favorite hobby is live music, of many genres and cultures. Domestically, my concert ticket collection is huge, and ever growing!

What do I most enjoy about my dog walking playdates?

My fury friends bless me with the funniest, and most tender hearted stories, just ask my clients, coworkers, and especially my husband!! All he needs to ask me is, “How was your day?” To which I respond, “Oh my heavens, how much time do you have, like right now?!” And I don’t summarize anything!!!

I look forward to the privilege of meeting you and your furry family!

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

Hello everyone! I was born and raised in our very own Rochester, NY. Though I left for college out of town, Rochester has that something special that I just could not part with! So of course I had to come back! I come from a lab family. My aunt and uncle had labs when I was growing up, my first puppy was a Black Lab, and my uncle has a Black Lab who may or may not be spoiled with the number of walks I give her, When I’m not outside enjoying all types of Rochester weather (you know as well as I our city can’t make up its mind!), you can find me at the bookstore or in my little reading nook at home. I almost never go anywhere without some type of book! If you ask me, my second favorite things in this world are puppy hugs and nose boops!

Kass

Kass

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

I was born in Rochester Hills, MI and moved to Rochester, NY as a child. I lived in the Rochester area for many years before moving to Gainesville, FL. I spent nearly 10 years in Gainesville, where I rescued my last dog, a beautiful husky mix named Sasha, two ferrets, and my cat! Eventually I realized how much I missed Rochester, and now I live in the city with my cat Rico and my ferret Jolyne.

My previous pets include a Jack Russell terrier, guinea pigs, and many rats! I’ve loved learning about and caring for animals my whole life, and I look forward to adding another rescue dog to my family someday soon! Outside of work, I enjoy hiking and climbing, and love to travel to new trails. I also love cooking (especially Chinese food) and reading (mostly classic literature and mysteries). A fun fact about me is I have hiked mountains on both coasts!

Morgan

Morgan

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

I was born and raised in Genesee County, but moved out to Hilton to raise a family. I have a 9 year old daughter and her father and I are engaged! We have two fur babies – One is Miss Gracie, she is a medium haired grey and white kitty and the Second – Miss Luna, is a black and white bully breed mix. Between the one child and two fur babies we have, we’ve got our hands full! I started with Rochester Dog Walkers because I’ve always had a huge deep passion for animals since I was a child. I’ve grown up around them and will continue to raise my daughter with them. Rochester Dog Walkers saw something in me and I’m so grateful that they did! I enjoy what I do everyday and I’m so thankful to be able to say that! I’m excited to see all of your fur babies, and when they’re with me, I treat them as my own. I am so grateful for this opportunity and will continue to grow and learn with Rochester Dog Walkers, and it is an honor to do so! 

Jordan

Jordan

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

My name is Jordan, and gosh, am I excited to be here!! I’m a newer Rochester resident, having found a cute place to settle down in the Cornhill area in early summer ’22 from the Chicagoland area (where I’ve lived two-thirds of my life!!). 
I enjoy fishkeeping, my main tank being a heavily planted aquarium with a small school of sassy platys, a little shoal of Corydoras who wag their tails like puppies, and a grumpy galaxy koi betta named Humphrey. They dine on only the finest of worms. 
I feel so lucky that I stumbled upon RDW – playing with so many dogs with unique personalities and developing relationships with clients makes each day feel like, well, a walk in the park! Plus, our management team really does their best to take care of us, so what more can you ask for in a job? 
I’m looking forward to meeting both you and your pup!!

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

Hi! I was born a few decades ago here in Rochester, the only girl with 4 brothers. We grew up playing in the woods, catching crayfish and tadpoles in the ponds, cooling off in the creek. We’ve always had dogs and cats in our family, along with a few too many orphaned wildlife! Since we’ve been married we’ve adopted some wonderful rescue pets. For the past few years, our furry children are Tucker, a blue Great Dane and Addy, our boxer/lab mix. Then there’s Junebug, our gray Tabby, sweet and not the least intimidated by her bigger siblings!
When I’m relaxing, I love to read, work on stained glass projects and refinish old stuff.  And I look forward to spending time with my 4 grandkids! I think people would be surprised to learn that I won a metallurgy award “throwing” silver, haha! (A jewelry making process). I’m so happy to be part of RDW!

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

Hello there! I was born in Elmira, NY where I have spent most of my life. I moved to Rochester in 2021 and have come to love the nature and parks in the area. I currently have no pets of my own due to apartment restrictions, but I used to have several cats who I miss with all my heart. My favorite hobbies include cooking and music which should always be enjoyed together and with great variety. A fun fact about me is I can play over 10 instruments! Some of those I can make sound good, too 😉

Dog Walker/ Pet Care Specialist

Hi! I was born and raised in Rochester, but my family spent several years in Charlotte, NC, where my husband taught high school English before we moved back home. I’m a mom of two boys who keep me busy in the best way. When I’m not working, I love reading, photography, and finding fun things to do with my kids. Fun facts about me: I grew up on an Arabian breeding farm and was present for many births, horse shows, and riding! We had tons of variety of pets found on a farm and the occasional wild baby raccoons, bunnies, and skunks we cared for. I was also the kid every parent loves, where I went hiking and brought home fun finds – I found deer bones on several occasions and bleached them in the kitchen sink; caught bullfrog tadpoles and kept them in the drink coolers; and caught baby rodents to keep as pets. As you can see, I really love animals!
