Hey there! I’m Abby, and I've been helping with Simply Yours Concierge since the fall of 2020, and in July 2021, I moved into my current role as Supervisor for the company.
This is my best pal Jax, a blue heeler/staffordshire terrier mix! I rescued Jax when he was a month shy of turning 2 in March 2019, and he’s been the greatest addition to my life. it’s been a wonderful experience so far as a professional dog walker/pet sitter - every client is so welcoming and friendly, and their animals are just as amazing. I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelor's degree in Biology, and someday plan on going back for my Masters. I'm a been a certified vet assistant through Animal Behavior college, and have worked at a vet's office. I was an assistant manager at a daycare facility for almost 3 years. Being located in South Brunswick for a decade now, it's easy to see how our clients help make this a wonderful community. Working with animals of all sizes has always been a passion of mine - my friends and family say I have a special connection with animals that is very rare. Every single animal I meet, I treat them as if they’re my own, with compassion, love, and respect. I’m so looking forward to meeting future clients and their furry family members and building a wonderful bond with them all!
Hi! I’m Jill, and I started working with Simply Yours Concierge in the Spring of 2019. I’ve been loving every minute of it since! An animal lover since birth, the simple truth is I became a dog walker/pet sitter by default, without even realizing it! In addition to our Fox Terrier Snoopy, I played with all of my neighbors, friends and families cats, dogs, bunnies, mice, gerbils, hamsters and guinea pigs, constantly growing up and learned all about pet behavior and personalities through a lifetime of hands on experience, despite having asthmatic allergies. I even helped out many coworkers and several bosses over the years with their pets needs, and everyone always said I have a way with animals that’s special. Being an all encompassing animal lover (I even owned a tarantula!) I never shy away from too big, too small, unfriendly, or unwell pets, and am very comfortable giving medicine and shots to them.
Thankfully I’ve been asthma/allergy free for years now and just love sticking my face in dog and cat fur with no repercussions, I just love them so much, I can’t help it! ! I treat all the pets I have the privilege of servicing as if they were my own, with love, friendship, companionship, safety, and fun as well as following any and all instructions, ensures your pet will thoroughly enjoy our time spent together! Being able to assist fellow pet owners and providing love and care for their pets in their absence, combined with spending time with their amazing animals and being outside with them is a dream come true! I have a background in art, and was in retail management before becoming an administrator in a radon lab for well over a decade, so I have serious customer service skills and apply that to all of my walks and visits. I love art, movies, going to NYC to shop and see shows, reading and traveling, but my favorite thing of all is being at home and having fun with my husband and our kooky cat Simon.
Hi! My name is Jeff and I’ve been with Simply Yours Concierge since the Winter of 2019. I look after our clients on a daily basis and build a strong bond with them throughout the walk. I am always happy when I get to meet a new dog or cat and learn their personalities and likes and dislikes. It makes me a better pet parent. I am a huge proponent of animal rescue and awareness. I grew up in a household of animals with many cats and dogs, whether they were rescues or strays. After years of being without a cat or a dog, I welcomed my first cat, Simon, into my home in 2013, and that was it. From then on, I took in 2 more cats, Rose and Jonah, and an elderly dog, Abby. Thankfully, they all get along famously. I have a full time career, in addition to working for Simply Yours Concierge, I’m a volunteer at Save Animal Shelter in Skillman, from where I adopted my cats and dog. I credit this experience for reigniting my love of animals and passion for rescue and service to those who can’t help themselves. I am very happy to be working for Simply Yours Concierge and I look forward to meeting many more dogs, cats, and others, young and old.
Hi, I'm Terry and I've been on the Simply Yours Concierge team since the summer of 2021. I cover dog walks and pet sitting visits on weekdays. I grew up with German Shepherds and have always had them until my last one passed in 2018. Before joining the team, I always took care of of relatives and friend's dogs when possible. At one point, I had a cat and bearded dragon lizard. I found and saved the cat from being outside and gave it a home until a better suited one was found, because I had 2 shepherds at that time! I have a passion for all animals - whether they're domestic and/or wild!
In my spare time, I love watching my kids play sports and going to the beach. What I love about this job is I get to meet all kinds of new pets and people, along with being outside and on the move.
Hi, I'm Sue and I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the winter of 2021. I help on a daily basis in my role as Team Monitor. I have owned pets my whole life ranging from cats, dogs, rabbits, lizards, and fish. I have also rescued critters out of the pool in my yard to nurse them back to health. A few years ago, I retired from the healthcare field after 38 years to find my dream job working with the souls that need us the most. I am a lifelong fighter for animal rights having joined the ASPCA and PETA back in the late 90s and early 2000s. I currently have three rescue dogs and two rescued cats.
In my spare time, I love walking, hiking, of course playing with my dogs and cats, gardening, stargazing and bird watching - pretty much anything to do with nature and the outdoors.
I love the dogs that go crazy in the snow because we share our love of that weather. I love the ones that just chill and take it all in and sniff the air in the ground and get a whole sense of their surroundings. Animals are very grounding.
What I love most about this job is caring for the animals. One tail wag equals a thousand smiles. All the different sizes, shapes and personalities of the animals. It's a very rewarding job. What I also love about the job is the clients are extremely nice and passionate about their pets - they want the best for them and they're not super extravagant. It is all around very rewarding. If I ever had high blood pressure it would definitely be very low at this point.
Hello! My name is Sophia, and I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the Summer of 2021. I’m currently a grad student at Temple University and I am from Philadelphia. I enjoy traveling, being with my family and friends , mystery and crime shows and reading. I’ve always grown up with cats, and taking care of strays in the neighborhood. I currently have a cat named Scout with Cerebellar Hypoplasia that makes walking difficult. She’s the best and gives so much love. Here she’s pictured celebrating her 6th birthday with whipped cream. I’ve also spent time dog walking and pet sitting for neighbors, family and friends.
What I enjoy most about working for Simply Yours Concierge is the time spent with our furry friends, the good mood they put me in, the chance to take care of them and help out whenever I can. I look forward to meeting more!
Hi there, I'm Nick. I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the fall of 2020. Growing up, I’ve always had animals in the house. Cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, and now currently a rabbit. I took care of our family dog and my cat as they got older - I gave them medicine and figured out how to make them comfortable. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my rabbit - when I’m not with him, I’m probably hanging out with friends or watching TV.
My favorite thing about this job is connecting with the animals and caring for them. Finding out what they like and what their behavior and body language means and what they want. They are a joy to work with.
Hi, I'm Jackie. I joined the company in the fall of 2021. Prior to joining the team, I was a dog walker/pet sitter for numerous friends and family members over the last 20 years. I have always enjoyed being around animals and last year I joined Simply Yours Concierge to help people in a more professional and official way. I work a day job during the week, but in my spare time I love going to concerts and comedy shows. I try see family and friends whenever possible and of course, I’m always hanging with my dog Winston too!

Hi, I'm Brianna. I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the spring of 2022. In my role for the team, I am a Weekend Backup Team Monitor, and also cover weeknights. My pet care experience ranges since I was a baby - I grew up with cats, dogs, and chickens as pets and the deer, turkeys, raccoons and ground hogs were just an added bonus to our yard where we provided shelter and scraps. Whether it’s giving care to an animal in distress or fulfilling my spare time by hanging out with one of my five cats and huge puppy, it brings me much joy. to spend time with animals.
One of the great things about this job is I can use any spare time I want to give me the ability to do things I love. I love traveling, I ride a motorcycle, and I spend a lot of time outside hiking or nature walking. I love a great adventure and sharing quality time by getting to spend time with pets and meeting new people along the way.
I am grateful for the job and view it as a fantastic opportunity. It keeps me motivated to keep going everyday after my generic day job and never fails to put a smile on my face. Whether the pets are stubborn and grouchy I still view them all in their own special little way as tiny happy blessings brought to us. I love having the ability to send pictures and sharing a break down of how everything went after each visit. It is a good feeling to be able to provide comfort and assistance in all times needed, pet related or personal.

Hello! I'm Rhonda, and I joined Simply Yours Concierge the spring of 2022. I'm excited to join the team and meet all the wonderful pets. Primarily, I walk dogs and pet sit on the weekends because I also work in a school as a support teacher. My love and compassion for all animals has been a part of me since I was very young. As a child we had a Poodle named Gigi. Then I started to bring home more pets as I got older. Five cats, one dog, turtles, tadpoles, and mice. When I moved out and on my own I had a German Shepherd, Rottweiler, and a Cockatiel bird. They all lived very long.
Now that I have a family of my own we rescued three cats. All were strays that ended up at our house. I have also rescued many wildlife in our yard. Baby squirrels, baby rabbits, birds, and a very large Snapping Turtle. I drove most of them to the Wildlife Center.
In my spare time I enjoy hiking, exercising, spending time with family and friends. Also help other animal rescues when I can.
What I love about working for Simply Yours Concierge is I really enjoy getting to learn about each and every pet I get to take care of. Learning about their different character quirks and personalities are a joy. Also, making sure the dogs or cats get enough attention while their families are away is very important to me!

Hi, I'm Marcia. I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the spring of 2022. After 21.5 years as a Johnson & Johnson employee, I decided to retire early in order to take care of myself and my family, especially my two sons with their High School and Middle School educations during the two year global pandemic. As the world began to re-normalize after COVID, I decided it was time to enter the workforce on a slightly different career path. I had my first dog visit with Simply Yours Concierge in May of 2022.
While in college, I began to informally pet sit dogs and cats for family members and friends while they were out of town. My first dog was a blonde golden retriever, Rubix. Now I have a reddish brown golden retriever, Yogi Bear. I trained him to become a certified therapy dog / emotional support animal so that I can share his love with others. We've conducted visits at Capital Health Medical Center Hopewell and Rider University. In my spare time, I enjoy doing therapy visits with Yogi Bear, traveling with my family, capturing memories through photography, and coaching youth Wrestling. What I love most about this job is a flexible schedule, being outdoors, and unlimited kisses, wags, purs, meows from all my four legged friends.
Hi, I'm Julia. I joined the Simply Yours Concierge team in the fall of 2022. For my previous pet care experience - I’ve watched numerous cats and dogs over the years. There have been overnight stays, long walks, car rides and more. I’ve watched friends to family to now clients at Simply Yours Concierge and all have been great.
In most of my spare time, I enjoy working out and taking care of my body. I usually walk my own dog everyday to get her outside and for my own exercise as well. I am also an artist and musician, so I enjoy running off of creativity as well!
I love that this job offers a variety of different personality. Each client has a specific routine and receives love and care in different forms. It is not the same old routine everyday! It’s fun, and you never know what your going to get from the dog/cat that day, which makes it exciting and entertaining!
