Passionate About Animals

I made the decision in early 2014 that I was going to stray from the medical/dental sales community that I have built my career. My life has always been sprinkled with my passion for music, animals and fitness and now I am able to create careers in each of these areas. When I feed my soul with things I love, I thrive along with those I serve! As a pet owner who loves to travel, I can appreciate the need to be at ease and relaxed while my furry family member is in the care of someone other than myself. Paws Amore Pet Sitting & Dog Walking is the realization of that dream!


Meet The Team



Hi-I'm Julia! I am proud to introduce myself as Paws Amore's office manager. I came from a long lived career in fashion retail management. I found Paws as a side gig from my love of animals. As time went on, I appreciated how rewarding it felt to help the clients and their fur babies. I learned people who love pets have an undeniable warmth to their souls. 

I also had great admiration for the family environment that Dena tried creating as well as her own personal sense of passion and drive as a small business owner. I was eventually able to depart from my retail management career and transfer my skillset to the office at Paws. I consider myself very lucky to be apart of the team and know it's in line with purpose!

In my free time, I love taking road trips with my shih tau, Bubba! Although, I do sometimes feel sorry for him because he has to listen to my off-key singing along the way!



Hello!, my name is Brandon. I'm a current college student at Kennesaw State University. I'm majoring in Biology hoping that i can make a career out of taking care of animals. I'm very passionate about animals, and love taking care of them. I like to spend my free time either being outdoors or spending time with my family and my dog named Bolt. One thing I really enjoy is going on hiking trails with my family and Bolt, and experiencing the beauty of nature.



My name is George, A Smyrna resident for 29 years, I am retired from working in the corporate world and now focusing on growing the business my wife founded 2 years ago. Married with five children (all out of the house) and have always grown up with pets. For me, it’s always been dogs – of all sizes; for my wife, cats and for our kids, dogs, cats, birds, gerbils and rabbits. We lost our two dogs last year, so Paws Amore allows me the opportunity to still ‘have’ some dogs of all varieties, so I look forward to the new adventure.



Hi!  My name is René. I have been a pet lover and owner from childhood as my home was always filled with 4-legged rescued family members. Each of our animals have brought such love and happiness into my life in their own unique way...and left a huge hole in my heart when they leave. I have my own business and work from home giving me a flexible schedule so I can enjoy time with PawsAmore.



Hi! My name is Caitlin. I’ve been in the Atlanta area for most of my life, and received my B.A. in communication and information sciences from the University of Alabama. I’m currently working on my nursing degree at Georgia State University. I’ve been surrounded by all kinds of animals my entire life - from little ones to big ones - and I’m excited to help care for your fur babies too!



Hi, I'm Melissa. I'm a mom of two. I have been around animals my whole life. Since working with Paws, I've had many interesting experiences that I would not change for the world.



Hi, my name is Ethan. I am originally from Minnesota but have been in Atlanta for quite some time. I have lived with and cared for many pets my entire life and have a special place in my heart for all animals. I am an avid runner and would love to exercise with your pup!



Hi, my name is Pat.  I live in Atlanta.  I have been very happy working as a pet sitter/dog walker for Paws Amore. It is the perfect job for me because I love all animals! While you are away, I will take excellent care of your pets and your home. I look forward to spending time with your fur babies! 



Hello, I am Jodi.  My daytimes are filled with kiddies of the human form in Gwinnett County schools, but my evenings and weekends bring me joy taking care of your precious fur babies.  I love what I do and have been a part of Paws Amore from the beginning.


Hi, my name is Jake. My wife and I were both born and raised right here in Smyrna, GA. We have been married nearly 20 years and have 2 amazing boys and 1 daughter. 

I was raised with cats/dogs my entire life and even had 2 snakes when I was younger. I believe that our pets are our children and should be loved and cared for as such. I treat each pet that I care for as if they were my own. In our free time, we enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and just about anything that involves adventure! 


Hi! My name is Jennifer. I have been a Smyrna resident for my whole life. My husband, also a Smyrna native, and I have been together for 25 years and married for 19 years. We have 2 beautiful boys, Logan (10) and Dylan (17.).  I have been a part time nanny for nearly 15 years now and have been taking care of animals since I was a teenager. I have always had a passion for caretaking, both children and animals of all kinds.  This is why I decided to join Paws Amore as a caretaker. I have only been with them a short time but I have already made so many great bonds and fun memories with our wonderful customers and their babies. Each new "fur-baby" I take care of holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to making many new bonds and fun memories with your "fur-babies" as well!
