Northside Retail Lead
Since November 2015
Jessica was a Space Needle lover in Seattle until her family moved to Elk, Wa., just north of Spokane. She loves spending time hiking or going on brief adventures to see new things, and would love to travel anywhere on her very extensive list of places to see. She is a talented photographer who has a camera of some kind perpetually in-hand to record every beautiful thing she sees, and she hopes to have her own photography business soon. She considers herself a bit of a mutt personality with maybe a little Golden retriever happy-go-lucky goofiness and a little of the Pug’s contented sleepiness thrown in for good measure. She is very goal-oriented and admires people with ambition and motivation for their own lives. Jessica enjoys the Yuppy Puppy and is always challenged with new information and having to multitask and answer so many questions about so many things! Each day is so different and you always have to be on your toes! This “freshly born giraffe” lives by the words: “Stop thinking about doing it and just do it!”
Since September 2016
Much like little Laura Ingalls, our Laura was raised on a farm. Having recently graduated from University of Washington (Go Dawgs?), she has since returned to farm life with her menagerie of pets: Jewel-10 year old heeler mutt. River-1 year old Goldendoodle puppy. Pumpkin-16 year old cat. Obi-10ish year old Maine Coone mix cat. Twitchie-9ish year old cat. Willow- 1 year old cat. Plus 5 horses and numerous cows and chickens…
Laura spent the first 6 months of her Yuppy Puppy career predominantly in dog day care and has recently transitioned into retail where she can challenge her brain and fill it with all kinds of random nutrition information.
In her off time, Laura LOVES hiking and all things outdoors. She’s an avid hiker and takes some great photos of the beautiful Inland Northwest.
Since September 2016
Cailee started working at the Yuppy Puppy while she was still in highschool and knocking out her first two year college degree at the same time. She’s an exceptionally motivated and driven young woman who is now going to college to become a nurse!
She works part-time so she can handle her school work load and maintain the high marks she demands of herself, all while writing our website blog posts and immersing herself in all the pet knowledge she can absorb.
Welcome home, Cailee! We’ve missed you.
Downtown Retail Lead
Since October 2017
Kourtney was hired when we put out an ad looking for a “Mini-Aquila” and boy does she fit the bill! She is an exceptionally outgoing, funny and delightful young woman with an affinity for bright colored hair and tattoos.
She has quickly proven herself to be a hard-working, information-absorbing, go-getter, and a huge asset to our team!
She’s a born and raised Spokanite and the mom to a lovely Tuxedo cat named Midna and an adorable Chinchilla named Morty.
When she’s not working (who are we kidding, she’s always working), she can be found playing tennis, longboarding or video-gaming with her boyfriend.
Since August 2017
Zoey moved to Spokane a short 3 years ago. She didn’t have any family or friends here, nor had she ever visited before. She had heard that Spokane was beautiful, so she packed her life up and moved north!
She is clearly the adventurous type, and of herself says “talkative, and outgoing with my heart on my sleeve.”
Her hobbies include: Lots of live music, reading, writing and poetry. She’s a huge indie/classical film nerd and enjoys anything artsy.
At home she is mom to two dogs: Dakota and Lucky, four cats: Carter, Salem, Leo, and Oliver, and a Ball python named Persephone. It’s a veritable menagerie!
Since August 2017
Maddy is a born and raised Spokanite with a deep love of her family, dogs and science! Despite her shy nature, once you get to know her, you’ll find her friendly, optimistic, exceptionally loyal, happy, and even on occasion, hyper!
She starts every day with a Redbull Energy Drink, and ends the stressful ones with a cup of tea and a good book or a movie. Her short-term goal is to get her AA degree and then move on to become a Forensic Anthropologist, Forensic Pathologist or a Nurse.
She says her Spirit Animal is a Corgi. I’m not sure which of a Corgi’s traits or skills Maddy hopes to learn or develop, but maybe it’s their adorable tiny legs!
