I have had pets all of my life and absolutely love animals! I currently have 3 dogs, all of them rescued. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in English Education and a Master’s Degree in Education. I taught middle school for 5 years. In April of 2008, my mom, Paula, and I decided to start PAWSitive Strides, because of our love for animals. I couldn’t ask for a better job! In addition to my own babies, I feel privileged to be able to spoil and pamper other people’s pets!
My daughter and I started PAWSitive Strides to combine our love of pets with our desire to provide quality service to others. We believe in making sure all pets are treated with the same love and attention that they would receive if their owners were home. It makes all of the difference in the world to the pet that is away from its owner. Like my daughter, I also taught for many years and have owned pets throughout my life. My current pets are two rescued dogs. They are part of the family!
Hello, my name is Camila. All my life I have grown up around animals. Dogs, fish, birds, even ducklings, and I absolutely love them! I have worked with customer service for quite a few years now. I look forward to speaking to you and helping to meet your needs as well as your pets’ needs.
I have always loved animals and have had numerous pet growing up. I currently have a fur baby named Daisy in addition to my two human children. 🙂 I have a B.S. in Hospitality Management from UCF. I look forward to helping answer any questions you may have about our service and to getting you set up with our outstanding pet sitters!
I have always loved animals and I aspire to become a dog trainer and dog rehabilitator. It started out when I first fostered a dog from the SPCA who was caged her entire life. And from that moment on I realized that there are such high degree of special cases with dogs that 90% of dog trainers couldn’t help them. That’s when I realized that I wanted to make a difference and help as many cases of aggressive and super fearful dogs as I possibly can. I volunteer with 4 rescues and I save and foster puppies in my spare time. I am willing to put in more effort and devoting most my life to helping dogs.
Hello, my name is Chantal and I was born and raised here in Orlando FL. Having pets within my family has always been the norm for me. Starting from a very young age, I have cared for a variety of animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, and turtles. My love and passion for animals has not only driven me to become a long time pet owner but has also motivated me to obtain a degree in veterinary technology. I currently own a lab-pit mix named Milo and a Shih-Tzu named Shaggy. I also own two domestic short hairs named Josie and Salem. My goal in life is to use my experience as a pet owner, along with my skills and knowledge as a veterinary technician, to aid and service the animal community in any way possible. I look forward to getting to know you and your pets!

Hello, my name is Gabrielle Clements. I was born in Boston Massachusetts but I have lived in the Orlando area for 12 years now. Growing up I was lucky enough to always have pets in my life and I currently have 1 dog (Zach) and 4 cats (Princess, James, Nora, and Ben). I really enjoy caring for all my pets and I would love to take care of yours as well. I love animals so much that if you asked me what I wanted to do when I was younger I always said I wanted to become a veterinarian. I now attend Valencia College and plan on doing their nursing program. I can’t wait to take care and love your pets!
I was born on the outskirts of Paris, France. Raised in the south of France and sculpted into who I am, here in Orlando, Florida since I was 11.
From a very young age, I was taught that pets are considered family. My first dog was a French bulldog and I now have two dogs. My pug Moe (7 years) and a boxer mix Reese (4 years). My boys have always helped me find peace in my chaotic life of an engineering student. I also work at a gym where I can help people with their health and fitness goals.
My mission is to help everyone to the best of my ability and care for each and every animal that crosses my path with the utmost love and affection!
I come from a family of pet lovers! My father’s a vet so we always had a house full of dogs, cats, and other smaller critters. I want to work with animals as well and am currently pursuing a degree in animal science. I am originally from Orlando and love this great city! I have worked for my dad’s vet clinic and big companies around town like Disney, so I have learned a lot about customer service and caring for people and animals. I will strive to bring nothing but care and kindness to you and your pets!
