Tara Milliman

Senior Claims Specialist

How long have you worked at Trupanion?
Since February 2013

What’s your role at the company?
Senior Claims Specialist

Do you have any pets? If so, what kind and what are their names?
I have 3 cats: an 8-year-old female Siamese cat named Pipkin, a 4-year-old, 3-legged male orange tabby named Lafitte, and a 7 or 8-year-old female black and white tuxedo cat named Mitzi; and I have an Eastern Box turtle named Pierre of unknown age that I’ve had since 1996.

Do you bring your pets to work?
No, they aren’t very comfortable in groups!

Do you have a favorite story you want to share about your pet(s)?
Pierre has been to New Orleans and back with me via airplane — not his favorite! Lafitte was bottle fed and has mastered getting up in the weirdest places despite his lack of a left foot. Pipkin growls even when she is happy and purring at the same time. Mitzi was a rescue from the neighborhood and she is allergic to human dander!

My favorite thing to do is:
Read, go to the beach, write stories.

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

What I like about working at Trupanion:
I love the people the most. It is such a fun atmosphere and everyone is dedicated to making our customers have a good experience. I enjoy being part of something so positive!
