Meet Our Team

Sara, Salt Lake City pet sitter, With Oslo and Molly
Sara
Before starting Mixed Company in 2011, Sara was Assistant Manager at a dog daycare where she was trained to give pet first aid, administer medications & adapt workouts for dogs of all energy levels. Working with fearful or wary pets helped her understand the importance of patience in creating trusting relationships. She loves to divide her time between hiking in the mountains with her dog friends & camping in the Utah desert. She also enjoys writing creative non-fiction & has a Masters of Fine Arts in Writing from American University. Her current sidekicks are Ally the Catahoula/Hound, Tommy the Sheltie, Hades the Husky, Dakota the Border Collie, & Titus & Amina the cats. She & her Sheltie, Tommy, have worked as members of Intermountain Therapy Animals' R.E.A.D. program with kids from Granite School District.

Michelle
Michelle has been a member of the Mixed Company team for five years! Her love of animals developed from an early age, growing up in Minnesota with horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. She started her path by training dogs in obedience and agility. She then moved to California to study marine biology, turning her passion to marine mammals. Over the last 13 years, she has expanded her experience to include dolphins, sea lions, seals, sea otters, penguins, polar bears, grizzly bears, and even elephants! Michelle came to Salt Lake City in 2012. Since then, she has been filling her days forming connections between Utahns and marine mammals. Michelle maintains a love for domestic animals of all kinds, and relishes the opportunity to bring a high level of animal care to her work with dogs and cats. Being able to pet, cuddle, and play with a variety of animals offers the perfect complement to her work with her other large, flippered colleagues.

Cami
Cami is our Assistant Manager & has been with us since April 2015. She is also a licensed & certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. Cami moved to Utah from Montgomery, Alabama in 2011 & graduated from U of U with a Bachelor's in Parks, Recreation & Tourism (Emphasis in Therapeutic Recreation) with minor in Modern Dance & Health. Cami worked with people with disabilities for the last 3 years of her undergraduate fieldwork. She grew up with a Dalmatian named Freckles & a Border Collie/Retriever mix named Oreo. She does not own any animals at the moment, but cannot wait to have her own in the near future! Cami is CPR certified along with a lifeguard & challenge ropes course certification. She enjoys hiking, rafting, camping, dancing, singing, playing guitar & spending time near any beach, lake or river. She has known since she was young that she wanted to work with animals or help people, so she is doing what she loves every day!

Heather
Heather was part of our team in 2014 & we were lucky to have her rejoin us in 2017. She has years of experience hiking dogs & we look to her as a trainer of new team members. Heather studied cosmetology at Sherman Kendall Academy of Beauty & still does amazing hair design at 38th Street Salon in North Salt Lake (contact her to schedule an appointment). She has completed a pet safety course & can be relied upon as a great pack leader for dogs with special needs. She grew up in Salt Lake & loves our beautiful state.
