Founder and Chief Executive Officer

I started Paws en route because my dog, Liam, needed a ride to the vet hospital and there was no service to transport him. We love pets and are dedicated to ensuring that your pet will always have a ride with us. Finnegan, Shane and Sweetgrass are the best of friends and enjoy taking photos together.

Chief Operating Officer

I am responsible for ensuring a great transportation experience for all our pets and pet owners.  Our dog Marley is at many of our Paws en route meetings, offering barks, begging for treats and launching his own Instagram page (Marleyythemutt). He is pictured here in an old tux.

If you cradle a poodle, is it a croodle? Carrying fluffy boy is no easy task but I make sure to get the job done. Joining the Paws en route team in 2017, I manage the office and transportation bookings with attention to detail.  Aubrey and I ensure that all pets who come our way experience the highest level of love and care.

Chief Technology Officer

Our dog Millie is a huge part of our family.  I joined Paws en route to help create a trusted transportation service that Millie and I would be willing to use on a regular basis.   Everyone here on the Paws team is a pet owner.  We believe in delivering trustworthy, reliable pet transportation services.

We love pets! As important is our in-depth understanding of pet owners’ transportation needs, and the limitations that exist in the marketplace for them. We also believe that pets should feel loved, safe and secure at all times. Because we are pet owners too, we felt compelled to create Paws en route.

To add value for our fellow pet owners, we knew it was paramount that all Paws en route personnel and drivers have pet ownership experience, pet care expertise, and knowledge. We strongly believe that the transportation of our four-legged family members should not be left to just anyone.
