Kelly C. Myers, MS, UW-AAB, DN-CCP

Owner/Operator

 

The proud guardian of two cats and one step-cat, Kelly earned her nickname "The Cat Lady" in her early 20's through foster and volunteer work for local rescues. In 2009, she burned out of her career in the nonprofit sector to go play with animals. After a year of working for other sitters, she took her Master of Science in Strategic Leadership to found The Cat Lady. In order to meet the increasing demand for her services, Kelly carefully screened and built her team. Kelly is an animal rights activist and an ethical vegan.
