Pet Resort Attendant
Lexie is the daughter of our long-time certified veterinary technician – now business manager Jennie Gross. To say, Lexie’s life has been filled with animals is no exaggeration. Lexie and her human family share their home, a hobby farm, with a “zoo” of animals made up of 4 dogs – the gentle giant “Rufus”, cuddly “ Willie” and youthful “Jarvis” blind and hearing impaired "Bucky"; 1 indoor rabbit – “Ralph”; 2 guinea pigs "Natasha" who loves cuddling and "Yelena" who gives kisses; 2 kittens – “Stan-Lee” and “ Groot”; 3 barnyard goats – “Ron”, “Harry” and “Hermione”; and “Venom" a Leopard Gecko.
“My mom is a vet tech; I have always been around animals.” Lexie has developed a great love and respect for all animals. She has learned and takes pride in her ability to care for the various animals her family has owned during her lifetime; seeing to their daily needs and helping her mom nurse the sick and injured animals on their farm and those in their large extended family. Lexie holds as one of her greatest achievements “the first time I was able to clip my guinea pigs’ nails on my own.”
Lexie also enjoys spending time with her support system that is her family – Her mom (Jennie), dad (Dave), and her younger sister (Nadia). In her downtime, Lexie also likes playing volleyball and practicing playing the flute, but her absolute favorite thing to do is agility with her dog Jarvis. Perhaps, she will be a future dog trainer.
Lexie is excited to be a part of our Pet Resort team! Her favorite part about her job currently is working in the enrichment portion of the doggy daycare. She likes to provide animals with the same love and support she gives her animals at home.
If she’s anything like her mom – she’ll be employed here for life. That’s no lie! We’ll be blessed to have her, too.
