In Kim's own words - "I love my job because loving on and touching dogs all day is therapy to me!"
In Kim's free time, she loves to spend time with her grand kids and family, loves the beach, likes to knit and work in her garden as well as go to the movies!
We are glad to have her as part of our team at TLC! Tish would be LOST without her!

Joslyn joined TLC in September 2017 as our receptionist and was promoted to our Manager in early 2021. Joslyn came highly recommended by several of our clients that knew her from a previous job at a pet daycare facility. She has 13 years of experience in the animal care field.
Joslyn has a BIG heart for animals and has rescued her fair share - from the streets to loving homes! Her first personal dog was a Chihuahua who lived to be 13 years old. Now she has a Border Collie mix named Faux!
A few of her hobbies include playing the piano (since she was 12 years old), watching movies (especially horror) and listening to music. She is also a HUGE NE Patriots fan!!
Joslyn is a pleasure to work with! She has a fantastic smile and a joyful attitude and fit in with team TLC perfectly. Her dedication to her job and love for all of the animals is truly appreciated!
TLC Pet Spa welcomed Daphne to their team in June 2019. Daphne recently left the corporate world working for a bank, some retail stores and many years with a large insurance company. Daphne knew she would be happier working with animals!
Daphne is a dog lover and with her husband has 5 of her own! She has 3 Dachshunds (Dexter, Lil' Abner and Lily Mae), a Morkie named Macie Lou and a French Bulldog named Piper. They all love car rides, Lil' Abner likes to watch TV and several (Lily Mae, Macie Lou and Piper) like to have a special day by coming to work with Mom!
In Daphne's free time she likes to go boating at the lake, watching reality TV with her dogs, trying new restaurants and taking short trips to new places!
Daphne has proven to be a great asset to TLC with her motivation, dependability and extreme love for the animals.
With 6 months of experience as a bather/grooming assistant, Rikaio joined Team TLC in March 2021. Ri loves washing, drying and brushing the dogs in her care because she enjoys interacting and building relationships with each one!
Ri is currently enrolled in an online program to become a pet stylist and we are watching her skills grow as she works with us!
Her personal pets are 2 large, rescued dogs - Hama and Shino.
In Ri's free time she is studying Japanese and likes to play Apex.
TLC Pet Spa is happy to have Ri on our team because her love for the pets oozes from her and she is such a dependable, hard worker!
Sydney joined TLC Pet Spa in June 2021 with a passion for being with and working with dogs! She brought 4 years of experience with doggie daycare, boarding and bathing dogs with her.
Sydney has 1 dog of her own that she rescued at a previous job. His name is Bear and he is a very well behaved, 5 year old Great Pyrenees and her best friend!
In Sydney's free time she enjoys music, movie nights, singing and she loves tattoos!
When we asked Sydney what she likes most about working at TLC (3 weeks into working with us) her reply was, "I love that I already feel like family. We are an equal team learning and growing together! I also like helping to take care of each and every dog I meet!"
We are thrilled to have Sydney on our team! She is a dependable, hard working dog lover with such a great attitude!
