Meet Our Team

To serve our clients in the best way possible, our team has to be the best. Our staff is upbeat and happy, professionally dressed, and knows what’s expected of them. We are all doing continuing education to keep our skill set fresh and up to date.

We all use the proper terminology for our services and are well versed in communicating them with prospects and clients alike. In fact, every job function is documented and fully systemized. There’s a special “way” we do everything. And we reward our employees for the great work they do. We all take ownership of our responsibilities and feel great about knowing that our efforts are rewarded. Meet the team that will make your pet's daycare, boarding, and grooming experience the very best!

Stephanie, Owner

Stephanie has been loving, and working with dogs her whole life. She started showing dogs at age 13 and after her first show she was hooked! She's competed in Conformation Shows, Agility, Rally, Obedience, and Earthdog with her dogs. In 1996, Stephanie decided to turn her passion into her career. That year she opened Paws and Claws with the goal of providing a place where clients can feel comfortable bringing their furry friends to stay for the day, a week or just to get a great haircut. Throughout the last 24 years, she's attended various seminars and continues to communicate with others in the pet care industry in order to keep up to date on knowledge, education, and trends.

Avery, Manager

Avery has been a part of our team since December 2017, but her love for animals is lifelong. She started as a receptionist, kennel, & daycare attendant, eventually ending up as our Manager. Avery enjoys spending time training in the aerial arts, watching movies, and hanging out with her 2 cats, Juno & Athena.
