Territory Partner Support Specialist
How long have you worked at Trupanion?
I have worked for Trupanion since 2011.
What’s your role at the company?
I was a former vet staff turned Trupanion Territory Support Coordinator
Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have a small menagerie at home and in addition to a few exotics I rescued I also have 2 rescue dogs and 2 rescue cats – Snakeface the Ball Python, Pinkerton the Chinchilla and Mim the Rosy Toe Tarantula (yes a spider for a pet – and yes she is a lovely pet that I rescued) are my exotics and then I have Cow a black and white Pitbull, Shorty a chiweenie, Miley Fuss a DSH and Minerva a DMH.
Do you bring your pets to work?
I do not bring my pets to work because they love it so much at home and are quite content to lounge about the house all day watching Animal Planet (yes I am slightly jealous).
Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?
One of my favorite stories to tell is actually about a boxer named Sandy who decided she wanted to live with us and was so persistent in wanting to be a part of my herd that her owner, a neighbor I had befriended through Sandy decided she could have her way and she could be with me (I think it was my dogs she really wanted to be with as they bragged to her about the good food and daily walks I give them) and I had her for 7 years until she passed from old age at 12 and I still live in the same neighborhood and Sandy’s story is well known and passed around at the dog park we frequent daily.
My favorite thing to do is:
Take my dogs out into nature every day. I also love working with local rescues fostering and training desired behaviors in dogs.
If I could go anywhere in the world it would be:
I am obsessed with Alaska but If I could go anywhere in the world it would have to be Australia.
What I like about working at Trupanion:
The culture, we truly love pets and make everything we do about helping fellow pet owners and their beloved cats and dogs when they need it the most which I am very passionate about.
