I was born and raised in West Chester, PA, but currently live in Greencastle.   I have always loved animals from a young age, especially cats.  I was very close to my one cat Samantha, who we found as a kitten, and who ended up living to be 20 years old.

I wasn’t allowed pets for several years during college and a few years after, and I really missed having them.  I got my first pet on my own as an adult in 2003, (my beloved Maine Coon Archie) and have had at least one pet ever since.  I currently have an 11-year-old chocolate lab that is my baby, and three crazy cats, none of whom get along!

I love the outdoors and just generally being outside.  I enjoy running (especially on trails), hiking, traveling to and visiting National Parks, and reading.

I currently work at a local doggie daycare/boarding/training facility, so I literally spend my whole day with animals.

I’ve also been a volunteer with Better Days Animal League in Chambersburg, PA for about 5 years now, cleaning the cat room, walking dogs, and helping with TNR clinics.

My love for animals began at an early age. I wanted to be a zookeeper and work with lions. Instead, I turned to domestic animals and have been in some capacity for over 40 years!
For the past 5 years, I have been employed as an internal medicine vet tech assistant. Every day is a new adventure! I share a home with two cats and 2 dogs, along with a loving husband.

I’m an avid animal lover and I would do anything to ensure that your pet is safe and taken care of! Your animal’s care is just as important to me as my own fur babies. 🙂

Ever since I was a young child, I’ve always been an avid animal lover and caretaker. From dogs to cats, to hamsters, fish, and reptiles, I’ve had exposure to a plethora of different animal species and am very experienced with taking care of them. Aside from my animal endeavors, I also love helping people and gained valuable customer service skills working as a host at Cracker Barrel for the past 2 years. I recently graduated high school, and am planning on going off to college to pursue my interest in veterinary medicine. It has always been a dream of mine to have a job where I am able to work with animals each and every day. Everyone has their individual passions, and I have found solace in taking care of animals and learning more about them in the process. Currently, I own and care for two dogs, a turtle, and a bearded dragon. First, there is my little old man Luigi, a 12-year-old chihuahua-terrier mix who has grown up alongside me and is very special to me. My other dog is a 3-year-old pitbull named Memphis, who is a very sassy girl that is full of personality and helps keep me on my toes. I’ve had my red-eared slider Squirt since I was 5, and he is my oldest and will most likely outlive them all funnily enough! Finally, I recently adopted a bearded dragon named Spyro, who has allowed me to get more comfortable in dealing with more exotic reptiles. I can’t imagine a life where I didn’t have my amazing fur (and scaled) babies, as they mean more to me than words can express. My mission in life is to help each and every animal that I encounter, both professionally and in my own personal life. An ambition of mine is to one day open up my own veterinary clinic!

My love of animals started a long time ago; what child doesn’t dream of someday becoming a veterinarian? Our household always included a dog, at least one cat, and for me a parade of hamsters. Fast forward just a few years, and today my home includes: my Heinz 57 pup named Chance; 3 cats – Milo, Moose, and Madeleine; a Fancy Bear hamster named Tate; some fishies; and our beautiful bearded dragon, Cherry (formerly PonyBOY – oops); oh – and I can’t forget the two-legged teenager.

I have my Bachelor’s degree in Radiography, and for the past 23 years, I have worked in the medical field as an x-ray technologist/mammographer. My job – especially in the current climate – is pretty exhausting and at times very stressful. The best part of my day is coming home to see my daughter and being greeted by all the 4-legged critters at the front door. The purrs, kisses, and tail wags make any day better!

I have a soft spot in my heart for all animals – if I had more room in my home I would rescue all that I could! I look forward to taking care of and loving on all the animals in my care. It is of the utmost importance to me that my clients trust that I will love and care for their animals just as they would! As not only an employee but a client as well, I can attest to the fact that Platinum Paws provides top-notch animal care.

Dana

Hi, my name is Dana! I live in Hagerstown and have been around the area my whole life. I have an all white cat name Magnolia, and an African Clawed Frog named Athena. I love to draw and paint and it’s even something I went to school for. I enjoy rock music and going to concerts, I play video games a lot too. I absolutely love horror movies and games. I grew up in a household with a dog and lot of cats, but also horses funnily enough! My mom fosters cats so I’ve seen my fair share of it all with them, and we had a 2 horses and pony. I love all animals, but especially reptiles, amphibians and cats. I love working with animals I can’t wait to meet your lovely pets and spend some time with them!

Sarah

Animals are my passion. My entire life I have been around, learned about and taken care of all types of animals including various species of reptile, rodents, birds, dogs, cats you name it.  When I was younger everyone in town knew I was the one to ask about their pets. Even now I constantly am receiving inquiries about beloved animals and I love every minute of it. Currently,  I have one dog, seven cats and a leopard gecko. I am very empathetic and attentive to pets needs as well as the needs of the pet parents. I cannot wait to get to know all the wonderful clients that come to Platinum Paws. Safety is my top priority and I will always work hard to give the best care  possible. As a pet parent myself, I know how stressful it can be having others watch your animals and I will do everything I can to ease any worries. Animal and client happiness are important to me.

Shawna

I live in Keedysville, MD with my husband and our three boys. We are blessed to share our lives with our Silken Windhound dog, two Ragdoll cats, and two guinea pigs. I love working around animals and have done so in various ways – horse farms, animal hospitals, groomers and pet sitting. I’ve always loved being a spectator to animal activities and have attended many confirmation dog shows, agility and obedience trials, lure coursing and dock diving. A few years ago, I began Noseworks lessons with our dog Roxie and I just love it! And the reason I love it so much is that SHE loves it so much. I believe an active and working dog is a happy dog. I look forward to meeting your critters and helping you give them their best life.
