    Ryan Shepherd

    Hello! I just wanted to say how happy I am to be able to work with pets and their owners on a daily basis.  Having two Dachshund/Yorkie (dorkie) mixes myself, I know how much pets become part of our families and our daily lives.  Their names are Jimi and Morello, and are named after my two favorite guitar players, Jimi Hendrix and Tom Morello.   I was born and raised in Big Rapids, Michigan, before going to Central Michigan University where I majored in journalism.  After, graduating, I spent some time working in Grand Rapids while my wife Dana finished college.  We eventually decided to move north to Williamsburg, and we haven't looked back!  The culture of people we have met in Northern Michigan is unlike anything we've seen anywhere in the state.  I am very excited to meet more of the pet and pet owners that make up the Grand Traverse Area.
