The best of the best.



Danielle Jaffy

Founder & Full-Time Pet Nanny/Dog Walker

My name is Danielle and I am the founder of Pawblem Solved.

Animals are my passion; I have a bucket list full of animal-related activities, events & goals.
I grew up with dogs; Golden Retrievers, Old English Sheepdogs, Shibas, Shih Tzus, mixed breeds...
I love dogs of all temperaments, shapes and sizes!
We raised Casper, an Umbrella Cockatoo, who had the voice of an opera singer!
When I was 14, I began cleaning horse stalls in exchange for riding lessons.
I joined 4-H when I turned 15 and became highly involved with that.
To help put myself through college, I got a job at a veterinary hospital.
10 years ago, I adopted a ragdoll rescue kitty that I named Gracie, who quickly became my best friend.
Since losing Gracie, I adopted two more little furballs; Kona & Riley, who make me smile every day.
I am currently training with my 14 month old daughter, for a charity run for Old Dog Haven.
My husband and I have volunteered with the Seattle Pug Rescue for many years.
We also donate a portion of our income each year to animal shelters & sponsoring final refuge pets.
I am a member of the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS).
I actively blog about current pet events, pet care, and various other animal-related topics.

I truly believe in this quote:
"We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." Immanuel Kant

Kris Gray

Head of IT & Part-Time Pet Nanny/Dog Walker

Kris's true love for animals began as a young child, when his parents brought him home a little Lhasa Apso he named Jester. Jester moved to Kirkland from Alaska with him in April, 2000, where they kept each other company during the transition to a new city.

He currently volunteers with Danielle at events for the Seattle Pug Rescue, and is a part-time pet sitter and dog walker for Pawblem Solved. Though he is a full-time computer programmer, he truly enjoys his time working with the pets. Jester sadly passed away a few years ago, so it gives him the opportunity to still have animals in his life. "There is nothing more rewarding than happy, healthy pets!"



Joan Hornby

CPS: Chief Pawblem Solver

I am and always will be drawn to animals, I couldn't imagine growing up, or living life without my furry family additions. My family consists of two dogs; Durango and Suzie, and three cats; Jake, Trixie and Zilla. My animals are my children and they are all spoiled rotten but deservingly so. I owe them so much as they recently help me get through a most difficult and painful time in my life.

I have always worked in a corporate environment, behind the computer, which paid the bills but was never personally satisfying. Now I look forward to each day caring for the needs of a furry acquaintance. I have learned a lot from being around animals but what our pets teach us the most is to see with our heart and to love without condition.

Lisa Roy

Pet Nanny and Dog Walker

I have been around animals my whole life. I grew up on a farm in Connecticut, and remember spending time with a calf because she was lonely when I was not near her.

Since moving to Seattle eight years ago, I have enjoyed keeping pets company while their owners are out of town. I love being with them, and getting to understand their personalities.

Now that I am in Grad School, walking and loving my four legged friends has been a great joy.

Stevie McEldowney

Pet Nanny and Dog Walker

My name is Stevie and I'm 30 years old. I just moved to the Redmond area about a year ago.

Ever since I was a little girl I have had a strong passion for animals. I was raised on a small farm in Oregon. We had cows, a horse, a few goats, dogs and cats...I was in heaven.

Now being able to work with animals is a dream come true. I look forward to work every day.

Beth Binion

Pet Nanny and Dog Walker

I am a transplant from Colorado who has been living in the PNW for the past 5 years. Growing up we always had rescue animals in our home. Along with our rescue dog Slap and rescue cats Smitty, Libby, and Peanut, we regularly fostered cats and dogs for two local organizations. With the abundance of love (and fur) growing up, I can't imagine a life without animals.

Outside of loving four legged creatures, I work in the non-profit sector and enjoy cooking and reading. Most nights I do yoga with my cat Cozy (more like I do yoga and she tries to lay on me). I always enjoy a good pun and can't wait to make friends with your furry family member!
