Our in-home caretakers

Dog Walkers, Pet Sitters and overall PAWSome people


Marci Phillips - Owner: Growing up, Marci's dream was to care for animals of all varieties. She was the neighborhood pet sitter and would walk dogs and care for cats at 10 years old. But it wasn't until after college where her life took a detour. She went to school for international relations and politics with the intention of moving to Shanghai, China and working for the consulate. That changed when she decided to help manage a small doggie daycare part time. She quickly realized that her passion was here, her heart still belonged to the dogs. She left her corporate job and dove in head first. And she hasn't looked back since.


Eric Hans - Client Relations and Marketing Director, as well as dog walker and lead Staycation Sitter. Eric does it all and doesn't rest until he knows all the dogs in our community are cared for and loved. Eric started with Paws Abound before we even had a name for ourselves. He helped grow us to the business we are today and truly believes in spreading our vision for Peace of Mind, All the Time to everyone. He has an affinity for labs, but gives more love to all four legged babies than words can describe. Outside of work, Eric enjoys softball and kickball with his buddies, finding new hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and spoiling every furbaby in the Paws Abound Family.
