Even when I was a little kid, I was crazy about things covered in fur ... furry slippers ... fuzzy coats ... so it only followed that I would be equally crazy about pets ... I got my first cat after nearly shaking my dad off a ladder in order to get his attention ... it was a love affair for me after that ... many more cats and many many happy memories. Eventually, I was able to get a dog and a new love affair was born. Sadly, like many true love affairs there are tearful endings ... I lost that dog to juvinielle cancer and many years later a cat to urinary tract crystals. Right after I lost my cat to urinary crystals, I made up my mind that I wanted to change careers (25 previous years as a legal assistant) and own a Global Pet Food shop. After all Global Pet Foods is Canada's Healthy Choice for Pets. So now I have a household being run by 3 cats and a dog ... and I am living the right life for me ... one that involves helping my customers make great food choices for their four-legged family members!
After working for decades in office administration, it was time for a change! In between enjoying regular days looking after my grandchildren, I also enjoy interacting with the customers at Global Pet Foods. I have the joy of owning three little dogs ... Muffy, Rascal and Teddy. As a pet owner, I have had health challenges with the dogs and it has become really clear to me that many issues can be traced back to food. When a customer comes back to us and tells us that a change in food or treats has worked out, it makes my day!
I've been either volunteering or working at Global Pet Foods for the last 7 years. I also volunteer at the Sunrise Centre here in Guelph. I have a 6 year old Min Pin and I am currently looking after my father's 15 year old cat. I also love my hamster, Zoey. I really enjoy helping the customers at Global Pet Foods. From time to time, I have also had fun wearing costumes and entertaining the customers!
I have been working in the pet retail business for over 8 years. My passion for animals greatly contributes to my job satisfaction. My pet family includes three chihuahuas named Ricky, Gus and Mona. I also have several fish and axolotl's. In fact, there are almost no animals that I have not had as pets. I really had a mini zoo when I was growing up. During my off hours, I paint and play hockey!
