THe Camp K-9 Team
Camp Manager - Sean
Hi my name is Sean, I have an energetic black lab puppy at home named Willow and I have my bachelors degree in environmental science. Someday I hope to continue on to achieve my masters. I've always had a passion to work with animals and hope to one day work in the field of veterinary medicine. I am certified in Animal care, Animal First Aid and Animal CPR. In addition to working at Camp K-9, I volunteer at the local animal shelter here in Westfield. In my spare time I love being outdoors hiking and exploring, or playing music with friends.
Camp Lead Supervisor - Devan
Hello, incase your pups haven't told you all about me yet, my name is Devan. I am so lucky to know and love each and everyone of our campers. Working with such amazing animals and people has opened my eyes to a whole new field that I could see myself finding true happiness in. I have many dreams for myself, but the best would be to make a career out of my love for animals. I am Pet CPR and First Aid Certified! I recently adopted my first fur baby Nelson. Be sure to say Hi to him when he is here at Camp K-9!
CAmP K-9 Cleaning Supervisor - Rosie

I’m also in school, I am learning how to be a Dog Groomer, I take online courses which helps me to get the best training as possible! I really can’t wait to meet your dogs! I’ll love them as my own!
Camp K-9 Camp Director - Kayla
My name is Kayla, I got my start really working with dogs at the local animal shelter here in Westfield. This is where I fell in love with the idea of really getting to know a dog on a personal level. I have spent time with local trainers learning basics on dog training which I have applied to my job here at Camp K-9. I am certified in Animal care, Animal First Aid and Animal CPR. Outside of spending time with my favorite dogs at Camp K-9 I rescue and foster cats and kittens. I own two cats Buffy and Clyde along with a few others who have become permanent fosters in my home. In my spare time I enjoy playing video games and spending time with my cats and family on my days off. My goal is to grow as a dog behaviorist and with the hopes to someday become a certified dog trainer.
Hey everyone my name is Bri and I am one of the Camp Counselors here at Camp K-9. I am Pet First Aid and CPR certified! I have always known that I wanted to work with animals especially dogs, my whole life. I previously worked in a local veterinary office here in town which I loved and I am currently enrolled to receive my associates degree as a veterinary technician. At home I have three dogs, Sophie and Jovi who are Silky Terriers and Vinnie who is a Norfolk Terrier. When I am not spending time with your fur babies here at Camp K-9, I love to read and spend time with my dogs.
Hi! My name is Maria and I am a Camp Counselor here at Camp K-9! I have always loved working with animals and got my start with dogs at a grooming salon just bathing them. After a lot of training, I eventually learned to groom and have been a certified dog groomer for a little over two years now! There’s not a lot of time to play and run around when you’re grooming due to them having to try their best to sit still while you do their haircut, so it’s nice to have Camp K-9 where all dogs can play all the time! Outside of Camp K-9, I have a huge love for horses! I have a degree in Equine Management and have been training horses and riding for 10+ years. I also teach people about horses, teach riding lessons, and have also ran horse summer camps! I currently have two cats, Timothy and Calliope, but am also looking to add a canine friend to our little family very soon! In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, camping, and traveling!
Hi my name is Kat, and I am a huge animal lover. I always knew as a little girl I would end up working with fur babies of all shapes and sizes. I am the mother of two fur balls, a little white fluffy mutt and a big golden retriever. I am very excited for I am currently expecting my first baby, a baby girl in the coming months. In my spare time I like to enjoy the outdoors and time with my family. A few years ago I completed my grooming courses and I am now a certified groomer. The last few years prior to coming to Camp K-9 I was grooming for a corporate retailer. I have a huge passion for the profession, making pups feel, look, and smell great. I feel like it is my calling! My hopes and dreams are to one day own a grooming shop of my own. I continue to use my skills and talent here at Camp K-9, in addition to taking care of all the K-9 campers during Day Camp.
Hi my name is Alex! I am 25 years old and a dog lover! You could say I like dogs more than I like people :) I wouldn't dispute it! When I am not having fun with the dogs at Camp K-9, I spend time with my cat Solomon. As a bonus I am a certified dog groomer too! I have been grooming now for over 4 years and many of the dogs that come here to Camp K-9 I not only get to play with but I get to pamper too!
Hey everyone! My names Alyssa and I’m one of the Camp Counselors here at Camp K-9! I am so lucky to be spending time with all your fur babies! I have my own pup at home, who also loves to spend time at Camp K-9, (really it’s her favorite thing to do). She is a 2 year old black Labrador retriever and her name is Cali Mae! I have always loved being around animals, especially dogs. In addition to working at Camp K-9 I am a full time college student, and I love to hang out with my pup and go to the dog park, hiking, and spend time with my family! I can’t wait to watch your pups grow!
Hi, I’m Monica and I am one of the Camp Counselors here at Camp K-9! I am an experienced dog owner and avid dog lover. I am currently studying Special Education at Westfield State University. When I’m not in school or hanging out with our pawsome campers I am hiking and kayaking with my Goldendoodle, Walter. I aspire to become a certified dog trainer with an emphasis on behavior modification. I am looking forward to spending time with your fur babies here at Camp K-9!
