What brought you to NPP?
Never in a million years did I think I would be switching from Healthcare to Pet care. Four years ago, my family and I adopted an amazing black lab from the Connecticut State Police after she retired. I soon figured out that Monica had extreme food and seasonal allergies. I heard about NPP so I went to seek out their expertise.
The amazing changes I witnessed with the improvement of Monica’s allergies and general wellness made me reconsider my career path, leading to my amazingly rewarding job today!!!
Tell us about your pets…
Well you know about Monica except what you don’t know is she will be 16 this July!! Yes 16!!!! My family also has a German Shepherd named Ammo who is 9 and also retired from the State Police. And last but not least Timmy – an awesome, big, vocal, orange tabby.
What do you enjoy most about working at NPP?
Everything!!!! My co-workers are amazing. They are my second family. It is very rewarding to help educate customers and guide them to better their pets’ health. There is not a day that I do not enjoy coming to work.
What’s something you learned while working at NPP?
To LISTEN and get to know your customers. There is always more to their pets’ story than they think. Maybe a new toy or a great supplement would be a great addition.
What are your pets’ favorite treats or toys?
Timmy doesn’t have any favorite treats but he does enjoy a good cat nip!! Monica and Ammo own every stuffed animal in the store and love the WOOFERS!!! But really Monica thinks the store is a self serve buffet!! Typical lab.
What’s your favorite product?
I am a big fan of supplements and my favorite is glucosamine. Both of my dogs have felt great improvements with less joint pain since adding this to their daily raw meals.
