Lead Trainer - Shift Supervisor
Andrew was born in Brookline and grew up in Orlando, Florida. He served in the U.S. Peace Corps in South Africa from 2011 to 2013. He brought back two dogs from his village, Maatla (left), which means “strong” in Sotho, and Chanda, a name he got from the movie “Life, Above All.” They are sweet, if high energy, dogs that are good for both running and cuddling with. Andrew has a degree in journalism from Elon University and has experience in photography, which he may use to take portraits of animals one day.

Keila Here! I might love animals more than people and I don’t care who knows! Born and raised in Boston, I have had my fair share of four-legged friends, fins and wings. The comfort that comes from the bond between a person and their animal is truly amazing. Their ability to uplift your mood is what grew my connection to animals. I have a 2-year-old cat, Mimi-rose, I am the only mother she knows and all the cuddles and kisses she gives me shows her appreciation. I also have a 12-year-old dog. My Sheba has been there for me through the years and time has only built our bond. I look forward to sharing my love with your fur babies as if they were my own!
Dog walker- Pet Sitter
My name is Jessie and I’m a registered nurse from Somerville who is just as passionate about dogs as I am my patients. I inherited my love of dogs from my father and there was always a dog in my house growing up. I currently have a rescue pup/fur baby named Scotty. I’ve always had a place in my heart for all animals and have found that owning pets is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. I can’t wait to look after your pets and show them the love they all deserve!
I’m a New England native who grew up running around the New Hampshire logging paths with my family dogs and have been obsessed with many different breeds for as long as I can remember. As much as I’d love to have my own Pit Bull or Blue Heeler one day (small city apartment problems!), there’s nowhere I’d rather be than outside playing with my family’s terrier/boxer mix Dublin. In my spare time, I’m biking or skateboarding around the city, record shopping, screenprinting and escaping to the beach as much as possible. I’ve always been immensely passionate about animal rescue and welfare, and hope to take my role at Elliot’s House towards a career in that field. In the meantime, I’m beyond excited to provide the highest level of care for other people’s best friends while making some of my own at the same time!

Amie is a Boston native and former Chef. She has lived in Las Vegas, Florida, Louisiana, and Georgia. She decided to change her career path when someone asked her, “What is it that makes you happy?” Without having to think about it another second, she immediately responded, “Animals!”. So she sought out her career in the pet care field and found her way to Elliot’s House. Currently, she has a 2 and a half-year-old Golden/Yellow lab mix named Basil Noel, who is the light of her life! In the future, she does hope to use her culinary degree again someday by creating customized organic treats for pets with special dietary needs, and even incorporating essential oils and vitamins into them.

Hi! I’m Allison, I’m 20 years old and I live in Lynn, MA. I love working with dogs and all types animals very much! I have a Jack Russell myself and a snake, a bearded dragon and two leopard geckos. My cousin’s dog Lucy (in my photo) has been my furry friend for about 4 years now. I have walked her, played with her and taken care of her every so often. In my spare time, I hang out with my family and pets. I look forward to caring for your pups!
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.
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!
I am originally from Guatemala, I lived there for 15 years before moving to Massachusetts. I currently live in Everett Ma and enjoy being so close to Boston. I have always loved dogs and owned/ trained 4 in my lifetime. I currently have a three-year old Bernese Mountain dog who loves to go to the beach and run into the ocean. One day I hope to become an owner of a pet hotel.
Hey everyone! My name is Mason, I was born and raised in Plymouth MA and have had dogs in my family as long as I have been alive.
