Pet Guardians

Our trained staff will provide you with excellent in-home pet care



Hello, my fellow pack members! I am one of the managing members of Ruff Life ATX and super proud to be part of this dynamic team. I grew up with dogs so I have always been surrounded by animals. While I typically work behind the scenes, I can’t resist spending time with your pets! So you can find me helping out from time to time. My hobbies include travel, hiking/riding trails with my dog Loki, and indoor skydiving!


Office Manager

Hey, My name is Ciera! I recently moved to Austin from Wisconsin (mainly for the warmth and dog friendliness). I am a business graduate, and I am part of the management team here at Ruff Life. I have grown up in a house with lizards, dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, rats, ferrets, hermit crabs, fish, hamsters, turtles, frogs, and chickens (not all at once). I also have volunteered at the Wisconsin Humane Society for many, many years. I have previous experience working at a dog boarding/daycare facility back in Wisconsin as well. In my free time, I enjoy exploring Austin with my Bernese Mountain dog, Luna and trying new restaurants.


I have been an animal lover for as long as I can remember. I grew up caring for dogs, both my own and those of friends and neighbors. I have also had and cared for cats, fish, hamsters, birds, and chickens. I love leading an active life and find Ausin to be the perfect place for exercise and outdoor adventure. I practice yoga and swimming, and I love being on the trails with my dog, Ajax.


I have always loved dogs since I was young. They fill my heart with lots of joy! I have a strong nurturing side so I love caring for things, especially when they are fluffy and love you unconditionally. I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, running, and discovering wild plants and animals. I am originally from Chicago so Austin’s weather is a great match for me! I also just love to cuddle and relax on a comfy couch with some good ice cream.


My name is Matt, and I’ve been caring for animals my entire life. A huge dog lover, I’ve had the opportunity to raise a Great Pyrenees, Lab, and two Pitbulls over the course of my life. Currently, my Pitbull Bella keeps me sane and happy with her loving and chill personality. I also grew up raising rabbits, guinea pigs, cats, and I currently have a Bearded Dragon named Drogon in my household as well. When I’m not caring for dogs or running my group fitness business (Camp Gladiator), I’m usually doing outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, and running. I’m also a huge sports fan. Go Cubs, Go Bears, Go Bulls, Go Blackhawks!!  (I’m originally from Chicago if you didn’t notice)


Hello animal lovers, my name is Elise. I am currently enrolled in a community college and transferring to St. Edward’s University to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Forensic Science. Growing up, I always loved being around and taking care of animals. I lived on a small farm where I took care of chickens, horses, and cows. I have two fur babies; Sophie is an Australian Shepherd and Riley is a Border Collie. In my free time I love to play video games, watch movies, and take my pups on hikes.


Greetings! My name is JoEllen, an avid traveler, adventurer, outdoor enthusiast, and most importantly to you, an animal lover! I’ve been surrounded by animals for as long as I can remember. Growing up, my parents for some reason allowed us to have enough rabbits that each kid could have their own (that’d be 7), 3 guinea pigs, 2 dogs, and a cat. Nothing makes my day better than spending time outdoors and seeing an animal just light up when you enter the room. While not spending time with animals, you can find me trying out new hobbies, exercising, cooking, or trying to keep my plants alive. Can’t wait to meet you and your furry friends!


Hello! My name is Jazmin. I recently moved back to Austin from Fort Lauderdale, Florida in pursuit of becoming a personal trainer. I am happy to say I am now running my own personal training business! I have a love for personal training as well as a love for animals. I have been around animals my entire life. Growing up I had cats, hamsters, turtles, frogs, dogs, rats and hermit crabs! My love for animals is what brought me to Ruff Life. In my free time, I love to be outdoors exploring the city of Austin.


We look out for the well being of all pets and their humans!
