Pet Resort Staff

We have the greatest job in the world, playing with and caring for your four-legged loved ones!

Shamrock Daycare and Boarding Team

Chelsey

Resort Manager

Chelsey is our dynamic Shamrock Pet Resort Manager.  She soaks up learning opportunities like a sponge and tries to make every day and experience better than the last.  She enjoys working with staff, our pets, and clients equally, in fact, she is often found in boarding, daycare, or at the desk all in the same day.
Her hobbies include fishing, dancing, sewing, nature, and listening to music. She also loves and recommends the Harry Potter movies.
Chelsey’s furry family consists of Tucker, a red lab, who loves bird hunting.  Her cat, Willow is a “moo-moo cat, who loves nothing!”.
She’s also the proud mom to the “coolest 8-year-old human around”.
We are very lucky to have her enthusiasm and energy leading our resort!

Bridget

Daycare Pack Leader

Bridget is very excited to be part of the Shamrock Team! She studied Environmental Conservation and has experience as a dog groomer, veterinary assistant, wildlife rehabilitation, and pre-school teacher, making her vast experience valuable and unique! She loves being able to spend time with all the daycare dog personalities and help them have a fun, and safe experience.
When not spending time working on her family farm, Bridget enjoys hiking, cooking, and listening to audio-books. She shares her home with Pippin a border collie mix, Sergei a short-haired cat, and her snail, Sven (how cute is that!).

Nicci

Client Services/Daycare Pack Leader

Nicci is a native of Portage, but doesn’t mind the long drive to her “dream job”. We love her quirky, fun spirit and genuine love of life. She enjoys the “family feeling” of clients and staff, and the snuggles of all things furry visiting the resort and hospital.
An avid reader, she usually has three books going at the same time, but spends most of her free time outdoors, or traveling. Nicci refers to herself as a “wandering, free spirit, or old soul”, so it’s no wonder that Montana is her favorite destination.
She donates time to the MacKenzie Center and even dresses up as Smoky the Bear! She also is learning about bee keeping and homesteading. You can see and hear her singing to us, and all the dogs, at the desk, or as a Daycare Pack Leader.
She’s a perfect fit for our Shamrock Pet Resort!

Claire

Client Services

Claire previously worked in our boarding department throughout highschool and has finally returned home to her Shamrock Pet Resort Family, full-time.  She is versatile and likes splitting her time between the hospital and the resort.
In her spare time, she enjoys the outdoors, hiking, swimming, and playing with her two dogs, Cosmo and Wally.  Her furry family also consists of three cats, Luna, Rory, and Honey, and two rabbits, Jellybean and Mr. Peaches.
A fun fact about Claire – growing up, her grandparents ran the Soaring Eagle Rehabilitation Center, so she grew up around all types of animals.  They worked closely with our founder, Dr. Joe Kelley on several raptors over the years. Proof that Claire has grown up at SPSAH!
