Our Pet Professionals
Owner of Pet Sitters of Ballantyne is a native of Chicago, Illinois. She has lived in many locations throughout the U.S. due to her husband’s career and has happily settled in Charlotte. She and her husband have been married for 34 years, have two adult daughters and have raised several Siberian Huskies over those years.
After starting successful pet sitting businesses in Dublin and Irvine, California with many happy clients, she decided the growing South Charlotte area could benefit from professional, reliable pet sitting services. She takes care of all the business matters so her pet sitters can strictly focus on pet care and servicing the client’s needs while they are away.
Her philosophy is to treat client’s pets as if they were her own, and Pet Sitters of Ballantyne pet sitters follow the same philosophy. “We consistently want to make pet sitting stress free for the clients when they work or travel by giving excellent care while their pets have fun!”
Samantha is a lifelong dog-lover and avid runner/yogi. Since graduating with her Bachelor’s in Marketing, Samantha moved to South Carolina from Scottsdale, Arizona to earn her Master’s in Environmental Science and to be closer to her family.

Arlene and Bruce
Arlene & Bruce have resided in Indian Land since 2010 when they relocated here from Long Island, New York to enjoy retirement. They have an 8 yr. old Cockapoo named Ginger who they love dearly. Arlene has been around animals her whole life including dogs and their litters, cats, and horses. Bruce was not allowed to have a pet growing up but has since made up for lost time.

Michele and Jack
After living in NJ their whole lives, Michele and Jack relocated to Indian Land in 2015 for the warm climate, beautiful weather and retirement. Pets were always an enjoyable part of their family since they were children. Their passion for animals continues to grow as they discover each pets unique personality.
So far since residing in SC they’ve got tremendous satisfaction loving and caring for many local dogs and cats. They enjoy feeding the birds year round, traveling, music and one of their favorite TV shows is The Incredible Dr. Pol.
Right now between grandchildren and grand fur babies “Life is Good”.
Kelly, her husband and their five cats moved to the Carolinas from the State of New Hampshire two years ago. They are both NH natives but were ready to leave the winters behind and live a much warmer life.
Kelly grew up loving and having compassion for all living beings. She remembers as a little girl, during one thunderstorm sitting on her dad’s lap on the porch crying, asking him, “What do the birds do? What do the babies do? Are they scared, safe and will they be okay?” To this day, Kelly still worries about the creatures.
She has always had animals in her life including horses, rabbits, cats, and dogs. Her aunt had a farm which she loved visiting, to play and work with all the animals. Kelly has always felt a connection with them and feels that at this time in her life, she needs to put her love for animals in the forefront. Kelly looks forward to meeting you, your furry loved ones and welcomes the visits and time she will spend with them.
Lisa and her family moved from Minneapolis to Charlotte due to her husband’s corporate relocation. Lisa has a special place in her heart for her two “Shelter Special” dogs as she likes to call them. Both of her sweet girls were rejected by several families before finding a home with Lisa’s family. Annabel is a loving lab mix and Rosie is a Catahoula mix. They have flourished under Lisa’s care despite physical and psychological impairments.
Lisa was a K-8 special education teacher previous to moving to Charlotte. Pet Sitting and taking care of her three children now fill her days although she finds time for cycling, cooking and reading. She has a kind and gentle touch when it comes to pets.
