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!

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!

Arlo

Arlo

Dog Walker/Transporter

Hey everyone, my name is Arlo. I spent most of my life in Oregon but moved to Boston about three years ago for a change of pace and I am really happy I did! I’ve always loved animals and spending time outdoors so walking dogs is something I really enjoy. I’ve had dogs of my own before so I understand the importance of providing the quality care you are looking for! Some of my main passions outside of animals are hiking, cooking, gardening, and environmental sustainability. I’m also a self-taught artist who enjoys drawing/painting and sculpting and have recently started making portraits of my friend’s pets for fun. Looking forward to having fun out there with those pups!

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!

Currently I live with 3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 guinea pigs, and 2 leopard geckos. They are the best company! I can not picture my life without animals, especially dogs. My American Staffordshire Terrier, Nala, is my best friend! Rain or shine we are always out hiking together, or making friends at the dog park!

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.

Dog Walker

Hey I’m Corinne! I’m a college student spending the summer in Massachusetts. Normally I split my time between a farm in a small town in New Jersey and Lancaster, Pennsylvanian where I go to school. At home I’ve been surrounded by animals my whole life, from cats and dogs to chickens and goats. And my campus has a dog park on it so there is no shortage of animals there either. I’m so glad I get to see this new city and hang out with dogs all day, too!
