Jack is from Massachusetts and moved to Cleveland, Georgia when he was 9 years old, where he had lots of pets growing up and frequently volunteered at the local animal shelter. When Cleveland began to feel a little too small, Jack moved to Athens where he spent the last 5 years. There, he gained a lot of valuable experience pursuing his two passions; animal care and music. Jack worked at a busy doggy daycare and boarding facility as a professional animal caretaker, eventually working his way up to shift leader - all while actively creating music in two bands! Jack plays many instruments, but his favorites are piano, guitar, and drums. Jack moved to the East Lake neighborhood with his girlfriend, Emily, two dogs, Tilly & Pete, and cat, Louie in 2016. Animals have always brought a lot of joy into Jack’s life, and in his words, he is excited to do work that allows him to return the favor.
Jack brings a lot of experience and passion to the Whoa Doggy! Team. Monday through Friday, he is a dog walker predominantly in Lake Claire, Candler Park, Decatur, and Druid Hills, and also helps fill in for some morning and evening pet sitting from time to time.
