Brooke L.

Pet Sitter/ Dog Walker/ Entrprenuer/ Event Specialist

Meet Brooke Lyn L. Always a New Yorker at heart, but officially a Santa Barbara girl, and forever an animal lover. 

Animals have always been her happy place, but it was when she was 13 that she began working for her neighbor as a vetenarians assistant. Her career working with animals continued to grow as she grew. Now, nearly two decades later, there’s nothing she feels she can’t do… except feed a mouse to a snake.

When she’s not traveling the world or making animals happy, she’s on stage doing stand up comedy making people laugh. 

She’s excited to be a part of the team and to continue to do more of what she loves!
