Teresa manages the operations at Beverly’s Pet Resort with enthusiasm and efficiency, as well as a deep sense of love and caring for every precious pet we serve. She joined our staff 20 years ago, shortly after we first opened our doors, and we’re not sure what we’d do without her.
Teresa has her own two dogs, an 8-year-old Chocolate Lab named Hot Rod and a one-and-a-half-year-old Lab mix named Rumble. When asked what she loves most about Hot Rod, Teresa sweetly sighs, "She’s my baby," in a loving tone that might cause a little bit of jealousy in her daughter Brooke, whom we previously spotlighted. Rumble is Teresa’s "cuddle-bug."
Her favorite place to bring her dogs is to Beverly’s (it’s true), but when she can’t do that she loves playing fetch with them in her yard. "They like to throw the stick."
Teresa’s favorite treat is a Snickers bar. Her dogs like to snack on ice cubes, carrots and "Malibus," the delicious treats from Malibu Dog Kitchen.
When Teresa was ten years old, she owned her first dog, Kizzy, a brown Dachshund mix named after a character in the TV mini-series Roots. When asked what recent movie she’s enjoyed, Teresa stated, "Mad Max was pretty good."
Teresa grew up in Anderson, Indiana, attended the now-closed Madison Heights High School there, and still lives in her hometown. She’s worked at Beverly’s for two decades, so it’s clear the word "stability" can easily be used to describe her.
Interestingly enough, her favorite vacation spot is Orlando, Florida, which she visits every couple of years or so because her best friend lives there, but she’s never been to Disney World.
If given the opportunity to be home alone on a Sunday afternoon with nothing do, Teresa would choose to catch up on her reading – and perhaps doze off while doing that to catch up on sleeping. Wouldn’t we all?
With much gratitude, we shout out a big “THANK YOU!” to Teresa for everything she does for Beverly’s and all of the guests who visit us.
