Meet Our Team

At Keeping Up With Jack,  we have a deep sense of commitment to our customers and our profession. Our team are employees. I thoroughly background check, interview, and train our team. Each member is CPR and first aid certified.  Along with having monthly meetings with my employees, I work besides them in the field, to help them become knowledge with each animal that we care for.

Jenna

Hello! My name is Jenna and I'm a born-and-raised Washingtonian. I have lots of experience working with all sorts of animals. I was raised on a farm and have been working in pet care for almost five years now!

 

I currently have a beautiful old horse Bailey -- and a new edition to my family, a Berner puppy named Jasper. He is my sidekick to all things pet-care and loves to meet new puppies!

I look forward to spending time with all your furry and non-furry family members!

Michelle

We would like to welcome Michelle to the team! Michelle grew up on one of Washington Island's before moving into Seattle for school.  

 

She is currently working toward her licensure in K-12 special education. As a farmers daughter she fostered a love for animals early on.

 

In her natural habitat Michelle can be found hiking in the PNW, or engrossed in a comic book. And when she isn't studying or volunteering, you can most likely find her drawing!

Shelby Axtell

Owner

I graduated from Pima Medical Institute i 2014, and I have been working as a dog walker / pet sitter for more than five years. 

I earned my certification as a veterinary assistant. Having a background in the medical field, I have a deep understanding of the health of animals.  

In case of emergencies, I am CPR and First Aid certified for pets. I also know how to give fluids, medications, take vitals and much more. 

With me in this picture is my fur kid, Jack. He's the reason behind my company name. He is involved in every aspect of our life...he's our whole world! I though having him incorporated in the company name was a perfect fit.

He is a well-behaved 14 year old Jack Russell Terrier who loves to make new friends. His most favorite thing in this whole wide world besides his people -- meeting new furry friends and going on adventures, tennis balls and bubbles!
