Parker

Operations Manager

Hi everyone! My name is Parker and I’m the Operations Manager here at Elliot’s House. I’ve had a passion for animals my whole life and I grew up with two Maine Coon cats named Dark Star and Angel Eyes, as well as a Brown Lab named Cabella and a Black Lab named Lily. Other than growing up with pets, I’ve volunteered with animal conservation centers in my home state of North Carolina. I volunteered with the Conservators Center in Mebane, North Carolina for six years. During this time I helped to build habitats for tigers, lions, wolves, dingos, and every creature in between. I also helped care for aging wolves towards the end of their lives. I’m happy to bring my passion for animals of all shapes and sizes to the Elliot’s House team. Besides pet care, I’m passionate about music and have helped to produce lo-fi hip hop in the past. I love being out in nature and would never say no to a good hike. I’m a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and love cheering on the Tar Heels during basketball season. I look forward to greeting and caring for all the pups who join our pack!

My name is Alysia Fortino, born and raised in Los Angeles. I love taking care of people and animals, it is a passion of mine which is why I’m going to school for nursing. I own three dogs, two in which were sheltered. Dogs have always been a part of my life, they aren’t just animals they are family or even children to some. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of Elliot’s team, adding more loving pups as part of my family.

Keiana

Daycare Attendant

Hi my name is Keiana and I am a Cambridge and Boston native! I grew up with animals of all kinds. Cats, dogs and even small animals such as gerbils and goldfish! I have such a huge love for dogs in particular and wish I could adopt a houseful! I hope I can one day! Growing up I’ve had different breeds in my home such as a Pitbull for example. Every breed can show love! I currently have a French bulldog, who is 7 months old. His name is Loki and he is my absolute best friend. Loki goes with me everywhere. He is my little companion. Dogs really do help people, their presence is so therapeutic. I am so happy and excited to join the Elliot’s House crew and show my love for dogs and different animals through working here!

Nicole

Nicole

Daycare Manager

Hi my name is Nicole, I grew up near Cape Cod and have always had a passion for animals. I grew up with our family dog who was with us for 17 years! And spent many weekends pet sitting for friends and family members. I now have a 2 year old lab mix who is a very sweet but very shy rescue from the south. We’re very excited to be a part of Elliot’s! 

Olivia

Olivia

Bather

Hi there! My name is Olivia. I was raised on Cape Cod and I moved up to Winthrop in 2017 to live with my fiancé! Friends like to say I’m “quirky”, probably because I change my hair color so often! I’m a big lover of comic books, video games, and the arts; specifically drawing and painting. As for animals, that’s been my passion since I was very young. Back on Cape, I have two high energy yellow Labrador’s named Dakota and Tornado, and an Olde English Sheepdog at home with my fiancé named Holly! Safe to say I love dogs that are too big to be lap dogs but think they are anyway. Over the past few years, I’ve spent a lot of time with rescues, and especially have a love for senior dogs and those with disabilities. I have an extensive background in animal care with experience ranging from boarding kennel and daycare, veterinary technician, and bathing/grooming! I am so thankful to be apart of the Elliot’s House team and I look forward to seeing, caring for, and making your dogs sparkling clean!

Hello all! My name is Sasha, I was born and raised in central Vermont. I am happy to bring my passion and love for all creatures to Elliot’s House! My love for animals began at birth, and since then I have been the sole influencer of all the pets in my family, two dogs, a cat, and a bunny. I moved to Boston, with my pet bunny, for school and graduated with a double major in graphic design and fine arts in May 2019.

My name is Miguel, and I am happy to bring my fun-loving nature to Elliot’s House.

Senior Dog Walker/Transporter

Hello, I’m a newcomer and just moved to Malden about a month ago. I grew up in CT but spent some years for school in Springfield and Salem MA. After Salem, I moved to Portland, OR and volunteered at the Oregon Humane Society where I received most of my training and experience working with dogs. Outside of that, I love reading, playing new games and baking bread.

Monica

Monica

Front Desk/Daycare Attendant

I grew up with several dogs in my immediate and extended family, mostly strays and rescues. I don’t have one of my own yet due to frequent moves throughout my 20s, and as a result, I’ve turned into one of those people who points out any dog she sees. I love all dogs but have a special affinity for small breeds with big attitudes and big dogs who don’t understand their size. I’m looking forward to loving on the dogs at daycare and providing exceptional customer service for their “paw-rents.” When I’m not petting dogs, I enjoy knitting, science fiction, and public health advocacy.

Daniela

Dog Walker

My aspiration in life is two things, 1. to travel as much as possible and 2. to work with animals. I grew up in a country surrounded by animals, from the crack of dawn I would get up to milk the cows, saddle a horse, fed the hens, ducks and swans, but my favorite part of it all was the time spent with the dogs. I learned so much from them like patience, trust, loyalty, respect, and love.
When I moved to this country I was amazed to see the lack of animals on the streets, that are hungry, alone, lost and forgotten. But that’s one half the truth, the whole truth is those animals are in shelters, they may not be hungry but they are scared, alone, lost and forgotten. I may not be able to help them all but I can try my best. 
The best job is this dream job where I can work dog all-day and help them be happy and feel loved when their pack is not around. To teach them self confidence and help them see the world in a whole new perspective.
