Caroline Lavigne

CEO

I was born French Canadian in Montreal, Quebec and have lived in the United States since 2012, after graduating from a Biology degree at University of Montreal. 

My first Veterinary Technician position was in 2007 and convinced me to pledge healing animals in need whenever possible. I fostered hundreds of animals, as well as volunteered in shelters, and started a Catch & Release program with one of the many clinics I have worked at in Montreal.

 

After 14 years working as a Veterinary Nurse, I started a position as a Veterinary Manager in a local rescue. 

I finally decided to work for myself and started WNC Pet Care in 2017, after caring many pets as a side job. 

My veterinary knowledge has allowed me to provide a superior approach to this business. Our staff is CPR certified, and has training for basic procedures, such as nail trimming, injections and more. 

I couldn't be more grateful for all my client's trust with their beloved pets. I am, and always will be taking care of animals as my own, and share this important business moto with my employees.

Amanda Burk

Customer Service Specialist
&
Professional Pet Sitter

I graduated in 2011 from the University of Southern Indiana with a bachelor’s degree in Individual Studies with an emphasis in Nutrition and  minors in Marketing and Business. In 2010 I graduated from massage therapy school. I’m also a Certified Transformational Life Coach, Bowen Therapy Practitioner, and hold a 200 hour RYT. 

 

Although, my career path has led me to work mainly with people, I’ve spent my free time caring for our furry friends. I grew up on a small farm in southern Missouri. It was there that I learned to treasure our four legged family members. 

 

I started rescuing animals in 2004. In 2013 my husband and I started a small domestic cat rescue on our property in southern Illinois. 

I’m truly honored to be a part of such an amazing community! I’m looking forward to helping care for your furry family members!

Professional Pet Sitter

I am originally from Pennsylvania, and grew up spending as much time as I could around dogs and cats. As a kid I dreamt about being an Animal Control police, so I could help animals who needed some love and kindness. I graduated from WCUPA in 2017 with a dual major in Women's & Gender Studies and Philosophy, and triple minors in Applied Ethics, Peace & Conflict Studies, and Political Science. While in school I had the pleasure of pet sitting full time for 3 years. After graduating I took a break from pet sitting to work in violence prevention and education, but really missed my time outside and with all the fur babies! In September my partner and I moved to Asheville, NC. I'm so excited to be back caring for animals with WNC Pet Care!
