Kayleigh was born in Canandaigua, NY and has lived up and down the east coast before finding her home in Western New York. She has always had a love and respect for the outdoors and animals. This led to her attending SUNY Fredonia where she studied Genetics and Education. Eventually, Kayleigh met her better half and his corgi, Babes. The more time Kayleigh spent working with Babes, her heart began to pull her in another direction and she started pursuing a more hands-on career with animals.
Kayleigh has been working in the boarding and daycare industry around WNY professionally for the last 11 years. Working with pets and their owners is what she enjoys doing most! She has gained knowledge, experience, and lasting relationships through working in many different pet environments over the years. In the past six years, Kayleigh has worked underneath a Master Groomer to become a certified dog and cat groomer to expand her knowledge and skills.
She enjoys working with local rescues during her free time; training, socializing and transporting dogs in need. Kayleigh has 3 dogs of her own. Riley, a rescue corgi who is king of the castle, Loki, her handsome Shiba prince, and Ribbie, the Disney Princess corgi. Kayleigh is excited and proud to come to Happy Hounds Hotel to expand her knowledge and bring her experiences to everyone, two and four-legged. In her off time, Kayleigh can either be found relaxing beachside or traveling around the country to national and state parks hiking and camping with her better half and their dogs.
