Jessica Fritschle

Founder

Hi, my life-long love of cats comes from growing up with them, I can't remember a time when we didn't have at least one cat in our house when I was a kid.

 

In 1998 I started working at a cat-only veterinary clinic as a vet assistant. Over the years, I progressed to the position of Head of Nursing in 2007 and then finally Practice Manager in 2014. I left full-time work at the clinic in 2018 to pursue higher education at George Mason University. And in the summer of 2022 I graduated with a BS in Biology! I spend my free time hiking, gardening, studying, quilting, and making sure my cat masters are happy. 

 

I currently live in the City of Alexandria with six crazy cats of my own.

Bria Hart

Cat-Sitter

Hello my name is Bria . I have been working with animals for about 5 years and I am currently enrolled in veterinary technician school. I also work at an animal hospital in DC as a vet assistant. I have always had a love of animals and there is honestly nothing else I would want to do more in life than to help and care for pets. This has been a passion of mine since I was 6 years old! I have 5 pets of my own at home, 3 cats and 2 dogs, and am looking forward to adding a new reptilian addition to my home. I’m very excited to meet new people and help them with their fur babies!

Alexis

Alexis Findley

Cat-Sitter

Hey there, feline friends and cat parents! I'm Alexis Findley, your go-to cat sitter extraordinaire with over 7 years of experience in the veterinary industry. For the past 3 years, I've navigated the fast-paced world of Emergency Rooms and highly specialized intensive care units, honing my skills to ensure your fur babies receive top-notch care.

My passion for our feline companions goes beyond the professional realm— I absolutely adore cats, and there's a special place in my heart for our older, wiser kitties. Whether they need a gentle touch, a cozy lap, or just someone to keep them company, I'm here to provide the love and attention they deserve.

Outside of the purr-fect world of cat care, you'll find me immersed in the thrilling pages of a good book or creating delicious treats in the kitchen. When I'm not ensuring your cats are happy and content, I indulge in my love for suspenseful thrillers and the art of baking. It's a wonderful balance that keeps me energized and ready to spoil your feline companions.

Cat-Sitter

I'm Frank, and I'm thrilled to be joining the Cat Nanny Jess family! With 17 years of hands-on experience in veterinary care, I'm here to bring my passion for animal well-being to our team.

My journey in the veterinary world has been nothing short of amazing, with 5 years dedicated to a cat-only hospital. Working exclusively with our feline friends has given me a deep understanding of their unique needs and quirks. Now, I'm excited to bring that specialized knowledge to our diverse team.

At home, I'm the proud cat dad to two fabulous felines, King and Osiris. They're not just pets; they're family. My experiences at home and in the clinic have only deepened my commitment to providing the best care possible for our four-legged companions.
