MEET THE TEAM

Bethany

Assistant Manager

Serving: Eagan, Burnsville, Apple Valley, Lakeville, Farmington, Rosemount, Savage, Prior Lake, Inver Grove Heights, Elko, Saint Paul, Minneapolis, and other South Suburbs.

Hi! I’m Bethany! I’m fur mama to Leia (2 year old chihuahua) & Cocoa (brown 17 pound kitty). My husband Travis and I love going to the dog park, breweries that have cider on tap, and playing board games — our fav is Smash Up! I’m an advocate for holistic health, essential oils, natural living, and currently going back to school to be a Nutrition Coach. My drinks of choice: decaf coffee, kombucha, ginger lemon tea. I’ve worked a LOT of other jobs, including: cheese curd fryer, a photographer, barista, Corn Roast server at the MN State Fair, chiropractic assistant, customer service rep, youth director at a church & chess teacher! My superpower is encouraging others and holding space for them to fully exist in the life they choose.

I’m so excited to be the Assistant Manager of Happy Tailz, and even more excited to get to know your pups through each of our walkers! I’d love to know what you love best about your pup!

Kasey

Serving: Saint Paul, Inver Grove Heights, Cottage Grove, South Saint Paul, Hastings and Other South Eastern Cities.

Hi I am Kasey! I’ve always been a dog lover at heart. I’ve adopted dogs all throughout my life and I couldn’t imagine living in a world without them! I’ll forever enjoy a dogs company, but I also specialize in doing nails! I received my nail technician license in 2019 and have been loving it ever since! I’m looking forward to spreading my love to animals other than mine. I can’t wait to meet all of them!

Hi, I'm Erin! I am currently a student at St. Kates in St. Paul, where I study Biology, Chemistry, and American Sign Language. I was born and raised in Minnesota, and I love spending time with my dog, especially on the lake! I also love reading and spending time with my friends and family. I am so excited to be working with Happy Tailz and even more excited to be working with you and your pets!

Nikki

Hi! My name is Nikki Hoffmann and I am 19 years old. Currently, I’m studying at Saint Paul College to pursue a career in Esthetics. I have 2 cats of my own, but would love nothing more than to get a dog of my own in the future! In my free time , I love to be with my friends and family, get outdoors, and try new things! Excited about working with animals would be an understatement. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to work with animals. I love nurturing and taking care of things so this will be an absolute perfect fit for me!!

My name is Jennifer McVay. I’m 29 years old from Lino Lakes MN. I grew up with 2 younger brothers and a younger sister.  I have 2 cats Nala(4) and Nikko(11 months). Growing up We always had dogs and I knew that I had a passion for animals. I worked as a house cleaner for 4 years and I realized that didn’t make me happy so I looked into a job involving animals. I got my first job working with dogs almost 2 years ago and I couldn’t imagine doing any other job.
