Amy began her career at Especially for Pets in 1996. Prior to that, she held positions in retail store management at JCPenney and Jordan Marsh and in the buying office at Marshalls.
Her first position at Especially for Pets was as advertising manager and store manager of Acton until 2003. From 2003 to 2005, Amy oversaw the new store design and implementation of the Westborough and Medway stores and also managed Westborough for two years. Since 2005, Amy has been the director of business development at corporate headquarters in Newton. She was also the project manager for store renovations of Newton, Acton, Sudbury, and Wayland and the 2009 Canton store opening. Her current responsibilities include advertising, marketing, public relations, event planning, and community outreach.
Amy currently shares her life with a two year old Labrador Retriever, Bogie, adopted in 2013. She was also the proud owner of a Golden Retriever, Bailey, who lived to be 16 years old. Bailey accompanied Amy to work every day and was well known and loved by customers for many years. Amy cares for her pets as holistically as possible, feeding a raw diet and enjoying regular walks and swims in local dog parks. She feels very fortunate to share her workspace with Bogie and her colleagues’ animals in the corporate office. Amy thoroughly enjoys the community outreach with non-profits and educating her customers about store events and happenings.
