My name is Karen and I am a self proclaimed animal lover. My childhood nickname is Kaycee and it has followed me throughout my life. From the time I was young I have had animals in my life. I decided at an early age that the best career for me was in the animal field. I took a part time job in a veterinary clinic while I was in high school, to set me on the right path. Graduating from Sheridan College with an Animal Care Technician Degree, I continued to work full time at the vets and also completed a course in animal nutrition. After the birth of my first baby, I started on the path that would lead me here. Using my knowledge, persistence and my natural love for my ‘fur babies’ I was able to open my own business. Kaycee’s Pet Food and Supplies was born. I operated the store for two years before introducing grooming into the mix. I loved the idea of dealing with the animals ‘hands on’ every day, and dove right into my work. That resulted in a very successful business, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Life changed on me as it sometimes does and I sold my business and relocated. I didn’t know at the time it was simply a pause in plans.
After moving to Brantford and some time off to have a couple more babies of my own I created the sequel, Kaycee’s Kritters. Starting small with grooming from my home in between chasing our twins around, to moving out to our little country property and slowly on to my dream come true, Kaycee’s Kritters has continued to grow beyond my expectations. And now with the final leg close to completion, I am truly blessed. I have the best job in the world. I hang out with animals all day……what could possibly be better. Thank you for joining me and welcome to my journey!
