Kristen Gardner

Appeals Specialist

How long have you worked at Trupanion?


What’s your role at the company?

Appeals Specialist!

Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?

I have 3 cats: a 4-year-old DMH named Gizmo, a 2-year-old DSH named Tobi, and a 1-year-old Dwarf DSH named Yoda or Mini.

Do you bring your pets to work?

Soon I will be bringing Gizmo. Tobi likes to pick on dogs for fun and Yoda is a wimp, so they will not be coming.

Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?

Umm all 3 cats are trained and I haven’t decided if they think they are dogs or people…

My favorite thing to do is:

I like making things. Sewing and painting are some of my favorites.

If I could go anywhere in the world it would be:

I would love to go to Egypt or Italy.

What I like about working at Trupanion:

I love the fun activities, relaxed environment, and awesome coworkers!
