Hi, my name is Christine and I am the Manager at the North Shore Pet Connection. I began working at the North Shore Doggy Daycare in February of 2011 and the North Shore Pet Connection in May of 2013. I live in Glendale, but am originally from Menasha, WI. In 2009, I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology from UW-Milwaukee. In 2013, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, also from UW-Milwaukee. I am also certified in pet first aid. Besides dogs, I love reading, listening to music, and going to concerts.
I love getting to work with such a variety of dogs. Whether they are diabetic, geriatric, blind, or just plain happy and healthy, I love taking care of them all. My favorite part about working at NSPC is being greeted everyday by my enthusiastic furry friends. When I come in, I make sure to say “hi” to every dog individually. It makes me feel good when I make a new dog feel welcome; it’s important to me to make sure all of the dogs staying with us are comfortable and happy. I like to dance silly to the radio for the dogs’ entertainment and sing to them, a bit, out of tune. It takes a lot of patience and love to work in this business, and when it comes to animals, I have plenty of both. I’ll do whatever is needed to take care of your furry family member. Every dog that comes through our door is special and you can be sure they will know it.
Hello! My name is Katlynn, but some people call me Kate. I started working at North Shore Doggy Daycare late summer of 2018 and North Shore Pet Connection early Fall of 2018. I love working here and learning about the many personalities of the dogs and other pets. I have cared for pets ever since I was a child. I had many cats, hamsters, rats, fish, and others growing up. I now have two dogs; a Siberian Husky, Blake, and a Staffordshire Terrier, Mary.
I graduated from high school in 2016. After graduating, I worked as a kennel assistant at a clinic before finding my way to the North Shore Doggy Daycare/North Shore Pet Connection family. I am certified in pet first aid as well.
I am very passionate about your pets. I treat every one of them like I would treat my own. I have wanted to care for animals since I was in kindergarten and my aunt told me all about what she did as a technician. Every time I get to see one of your fur babies I feel so much love and joy.
My name is Krysta! I completed my veterinary technician program at the Milwaukee Career College and also work as a vet tech in emergency medicine. I have always loved animals and have owned a wide variety of pets growing up. Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors, boating, camping, and hiking with my black lab retriever named Duke.
Hi all! My name is Abby and I started working at North Shore Doggy Daycare and North Shore Pet Connection in January of 2020. I have loved animals my whole life. I originally started school with a major in Nursing and a minor in Veterinary Sciences, but have since changed it so that my major is Veterinary Sciences. I am certified in First Aid for Pets. I have had the privilege to care for many pets from snakes and bearded dragons to cats and dogs. North Shore Pet Connection and North Shore Doggy Daycare have given me the chance to work with an amazing staff and all of your little loved ones, well, some not so little lol. I am very excited to meet you all and get to know each and every one of your pets that come in!
I was born and raised in Whitefish bay and currently live in Fox Point. Growing up, I was only allowed to have one caged rodent in my house at a time since my parents were not "animal people." My first memory of being fascinated by dogs is when I was 9 years old and we moved to a house across the street from a park where dogs would walk past us all day. I would ask owners to pet their dog and get to know the regulars. Eveentually, I got my first job walking an elderly neighbor's dog down the street. Once I was in my 20's, friends of the family started asking me to walk their dogs or dog-sit in their houses. I am so happy I found my calling and get to have animals, especially dogs, in my daily work life. I started working for North Shore Doggy Daycare and North Shore Pet Connection in March 2020 and I am so happy everytime I get to go to work and see all the goofy, adorable faces of the dogs I take care of each day. I am Cat and Dog First Aid certified through the American Red Cross and have 10 years of experience taking care of numerous dog breeds, including those with special needs. My busy work and lifestyle keeps me from being able to own my own dog at this time, but I do have two guinea pigs, Frankie and Domino, to keep me company.
