Dr. Erin

Erin has always had a love for animals, growing up surrounded by cats, dogs and other furry friends.  She currently has two cats, Jinx and Oliver, who share her home with her and her husband Gabriel.   She is a huge Michigan State Fan and has a PH.D in Fisheries and Wildlife from MSU, where she has gained a lot of experience caring for fish and working with wildlife in their natural habitats.  Erin enjoys everything outdoors, including hiking, kayaking, camping and running ...especially when she has a dog friend to go with!  She is excited to be a part of the Ruby Slippers Team.  She now lives with her husband in Elko, Nevada.... but never fear.... she is wonderful at handling your requests and getting your pets scheduled for pampering.

Allison recently became certified as a Certified Nursing Assistant with hopes of becoming a  nurse one day.  She grew up with animals all her life, mostly dogs.  Her Cat Simon, was one of her best friends ever that she can remember.  She used to read bedtime stories to him when she was a shy little girl.   Now she has a cat, Echo and a dog, Ruby to read stories to and pamper all the time.  She loves all animals unconditionally and loves that you share all your furry babies for her to pamper.

​Originally from Chicago, Nicole moved to Michigan from the University of Tennessee at Martin, specifically to attend MSU. She is now a Senior at MSU, with a major in Animal Science and a focus in Veterinary Medicine. She plans to attend the College of Veterinary Medicine at MSU as well, so she can one day achieve her goals of owning her own clinic. She is engaged to her best friend, Kodiak. Her other best friend is her three year old Maine Coon, Oscar. Nicole has known she was meant to work with animals since day one, and it is never a dull moment for her when she’s with them.​​


Kathy is the owner and founder of Ruby Slippers Pet Care, Inc.  She oversees all the details to make sure your pampering services are the best experiences for you and your furry babies and she absolutely loves everything about Ruby Slippers Pet Care.
