Our Staff of Animal Lovers

 

Kristen Johnson

Hi, I’m Kristen Johnson and the owner of “Out-n-About” Pet Sitting Service . I had been in the airline business for 13 years as a flight attendant and flight attendant supervisor and my company closed and I had to think, what next? I had helped some elderly neighbors shop and had watched some pets too- so I tied the two together and the pet sitting has truly taken off!  So 12 years later, we have 180+ customers and the best staff I could ever ask for to take care of them.  We look forward to treating your pets as we do our own- with love and great care:) Hope to meet you soon!

 

Sam

Hi! I’m Sam! I was born and raised in Levittown Pa. I currently live in Morrisville with my husband, daughter and 3 cats! I have always loved animals. Growing up I had fish, guinea pigs, and cats. I am a huge cat lover! Although I have never owned a dog, I do love them too! I love the outdoors- camping, hiking, nature walks, ect. I’m lucky I get to combine two of my loves as work- animals and being outside.  I have been with Out N About for 2 years and have been helping Kristen manage the business for a few months. I look forward to helping you with your pets needs, weather it’s walks during the day or visits while you’re on vacation. Your pets are in good hands!

 

Tori

Hey, I’m Tori. For my whole life, I have always loved animals. I have had a wide variety of pets including big and small dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, chinchillas, dwarf hamsters, fish, and more. While pursuing photography and anthropology at PSU, I volunteered with Beagle 911 Rescue: photographing and showing the dogs at adoption events and even being a foster mom. I have worked at Petsmart in the small animals and reptiles section, so I am knowledgeable and experienced with the handling and care for such pets as well. Aside from an extensive background in retail, I currently work full time as a freelance photographer and designer and walk dogs part time. I think life is about doing what you love and being happy, so I am ecstatic that I have the ability to follow both of my passions. I adore every kind of animal and think they are all special and deserve to be treated so. I have a rescue dog named Ralli, and a cat named Monsi! They are both such characters and are wonderful to have in my life. I feel an intense connection with animals and would love the opportunity to care for your dogs and other pets as if they were my own!

 

 

Laura

Hey there pet owners. My name is Laura and I am a big time dog lover! I always say give me a baby or a dog and I’m a happy girl! I have been working for Kristen Johnson since June 2012. Being a part of Out N About has been a great blessing in my life! It has always been important to me that I love what I do for a living. With dog walking and pet sitting I absolutely enjoy each day that I get to spend with your furry family members. I can’t imagine any day without slurps, licks, slobber, paws, playing fetch, walks in the rain, belly scratches and runs in the park. I find so much joy in looking after your little love bugs.
I am married to Josh, who is also a dog walker on our team. We have a 7 year old boxer/pit mix, Layla. She is the love of my life… after Josh of course!

 

 

Josh

Hello! My my name is Josh. I grew up with dogs, cats, lizards, turtles, birds, fish, hamsters and guinea pigs, in my family home. My wife Laura (she works with outnabout too) and I reside in Lower Makefield Township, not far from Yardley borough. I have worked for out n about since April 2013 and it is one of my favorite things to do. I love caring for your pet family when you’re at work or away. Besides being a full time walker with Out-n-about, I am a web developer and work for a faith based non-profit as their new media marketing specialist.

 

 

Peggy

Hello my name is Peggy.  I have always been an animal lover. Throughout my life I have had a wide variety of dogs to call family. Starting with a Fox Terrier (Topper), then a Basset Hound (Jenny), to a pack of Dachshunds (Scruffy, Skippy, Jack and Jill), and now I have a Belgian Malinois named Malli.  Along with dogs I’ve had many small pets including lizards, gerbils, hamsters, a guinea pig and a flock of parakeets (Violet, Oreo, Sunshine, Killarney, Sunflower, and Blueberry). When I’m not dog walking, I’m training or playing with my Malli girl. She loves doing everything with us including kayaking, and we currently are training her to run along a bike. I can also be found building different equipment for Malli to do agility work at home since she is excelling in her agility classes. I’m so happy to bring my love of animals to my work life as well. Thank you for letting me take care of your beloved pets!

 

Lori

Hi! My name is Lori. I have 3 cats- Sydney, a very sassy tuxedo cat; Marley, a cuddly orange tabby; and Iris, a silver tabby who’s always getting into trouble. I also have a sweet 9 year old Chihuahua named Brownie and two Brahma hens named Alice and Nina. I love all animals, espically dog and cats. all with their quirky personalities and cute antics. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to care for your pets with the same compassion, love and kindness as I would my own animals. I also work part time as an artist and sell hand crafted dream catchers, cold process soap, and other items. I ove my jobs both caring for your pets and having an outlet to be creative!

 

Carole

Hi! I’m Carole! I have always been an animal lover and have had many furry family members over the years. I have been married for 25 years, I’m a mom of two college age sons, and an 8 year old Labrador Retriever named Remi. I was a court reporter for 17 years.  When my kids were younger, I was lucky enough to be able to change careers and become a stay-at-home mom, which was amazing!  But my boys have grown up now, so I have decided to go back to work doing something I love. Caring for your animals with Kristen and her team is a perfect fit for me and I am so happy to have the opportunity to do so.  I look forward to meeting you and your four-legged family!

 

Sue

Hello, pet lovers!  My name is Sue Hess. I’ve lived in Morrisville since 2000, and been a multiple cat owner since 2001.  (Yes, I have a 16 year old cat…I guess she’s well taken care of!). I’ve been an animal lover all my life. Animals seem to know I’m “one of the  good ones”, even (especially) the shy ones. I’ve always felt a special connection to animals – I swear I can look in their eyes and tell what they’re thinking!  While I’m fairly new to working for Out ‘n’ About, Kristen and her crew have cared for my cats on many occasions since 2006.  I am loving caring for all the dogs and cats that I’ve met so far, and look forward to meeting many more!
