Who's Who in the Zoo ...
My Dad always taught me that it is the people around you that make you successful. This couldn't be more true.
Good Girl since 2019.
Ahhh, Jill. Jill is both my life partner, and part time contractor.
Who's a Good Girl? would not have been possible without Jill's belief in me. She has always been my biggest cheerleader and is the steadfast constant taking care of Rex, Nalla, and our home when I am on Overnights.
Growing up in North Vancouver and Calgary, Jill has called Edmonton home since 1991. Jill has the most positively non linear, eclectic work history ranging from obtaining her Journeyman Baker and Red Seal Certification from NAIT, to instructing at NAIT, then advancing to various managerial roles at Company's Coming, Women Building Futures, RED Academy, and the UofA Faculty of Extension.
She loves the feminine energy of Edmonton and knows it intimately. With 16 marathons under her belt, and achieving a personal best time in the coveted Boston Marathon in 2016, Jill has graced the communities and trails of Edmonton for years.
It is only a natural fit that Jill reclaims these trails walking dogs and cat whispering in between running her own independent program management and strategic planning consulting company.
Yes Jill, a magician in the kitchen, a sprouting green thumb in the garden, an uncanny ability to write jingles, and able to maintain a 6000 point spread in our life long Skip Bo spreadsheet, Jill is uni"cute". I'm so happy and proud to share this journey with her. Please welcome Jill!
Good Girl since 2021.
I’m extremely happy to formally introduce you to my part time contractor (and good friend), Paula Bertamini.
Paula started with me in May of 2021 and has been absolutely “Goddess sent” in helping me service some of the coveted 11:00-1:00 pm walk requests and occasional Overnights. After years of sitting behind a desk, saying goodbye to her beloved Lakeland Terrier Daisy in 2020, and navigating the last 18 months of COVID-19, Paula was only too happy to join the Who’s a Good Girl? movement.
Paula is originally from Nova Scotia but has lived in in Alberta for most of her life. Previously residing in both Red Deer and Drumheller, she has called Edmonton home since 1997 where she raised her family. Paula currently lives with her partner Ross and their handsome, chocolate Labrador Retriever cross Murphy.
Paula has a history of owning small business and being creative. From running a Tea Room/ Gift Shop in Drumheller, to being a Prop Stylist and Photo Editor at Company’s Coming, she currently manages her own Multi-Media Website Design and Photo Editing Business.
Paula has always maintained an active and colorful lifestyle. Paula has 30 years of tap dance experience, tallied 5 half marathons, completed The Ride to Conquer Cancer, swims, kayaks, and hikes. She can do The Hustle like none other, chortle up a storm, and make you fall to the floor splitting your gut in laughter. On a Friday night, she can be found sitting on her deck sipping a well deserved martini before making an incredible vegan meal.
It has been an absolute pleasure and asset having Paula affiliated and especially with all the expertise she brings to the team. Paula is a fun Girl, but she runs a tight ship, or should I say short leash! Please welcome Paula!
