Growing up, Ellen always liked and had different types of animals. When her family spent 5 years overseas, they took their animals with them. Before she came to work with us, Ellen and her husband Larry owned a pet store, and Dr. Eisel was their store vet. After they closed the business, Ellen joined the Animalife family and the rest is history. As part of our team, she enjoys developing close relationships with pets and their families by making sure their furry companions are loved and well cared for during their grooming or boarding visits. Outside of the animal hospital, Ellen and her husband run a pet sitting business (Larry is the primary caregiver). A love of pets apparently runs in the family; their 2 children and 3 grandchildren all have multiple pets in their households. Ellen and Larry share their home with 5 different dog breeds, 7 rescued cats, and a Red Foot tortoise named Rosie. In her spare time, Ellen loves reading, traveling with her husband, eating out, and photography.
