Jessica Dwyer, Owner of Whiskers at Home
Jessica brought 15 years of experience in the service industry (working for Marriott International) and 30 years in personal pet care to the company when she started Whiskers at Home. She grew up having many pets–including a Chow Chow, a ring neck parrot, rabbits, and cats; and also loved working with horses. Jessica earned her Certified Feline Training and Behavior Specialist (CFTBS) degree from Animal Behavior Institute in 2017, and uses this education regularly to help train her team of Cat Care Professionals, to advise clients, and provide outstanding service to the felines under her care.
Jessica is currently a volunteer at Homeward Pet Adoption Center, and is a member of their Cat Behavioral team. She also volunteered as an Adoption Counselor for the Purrfect Pals Cat Shelter from 2009 to 2015. From 2010 to 2013 Jessica served as a Board Member for the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters and in 2015 was the co-winner of their national Business of the Year Award. Because of her passion and knowledge, she believes in providing the cleanest, safest and most loving environment possible for all cats. Jessica adores cats so much that she has enlisted her own feline family members as part of her company staff.
