Here at Tailster we think it's important you get to know the team so over the coming weeks, we'll be posting small interviews with people within the company. We think it's a fun way to get to know Tailster a little better. If you have any further questions for Shannon feel free to ask them in the comments below! :)
Tell us a little about yourself.
Hi, my name is Shannon – and I’m an operations associate here at Tailster. On an average day, I deal with customer service and usual admin work. I joined Tailster a little over a year ago after a stint at Ford, it was by far one of the best decisions I've made. I am a pet owner and have a dog called Duke, he’s handsome and he knows it. He also smells a bit - but you know, it’s love #dogmumlife.
What do you love about your job?
I love chatting with people and helping them find the perfect pet carer. Plus I like awing at pet profiles that I come across dealing with queries. The amazing thing about Tailster is that every day is different, queries and questions change. We're also a small close knit team here, so sometimes work doesn't feel like work at all.
If you could save one person in the office who would it be and why?
I’d save Amelia, the latest addition to the Tailster family, because dog. She is also pretty cute which helps.
Dogs - Small dogs. Big Dogs. Fluffy dogs. Short dogs. Bald dogs. Just.. all the dogs. I'm just a crazy dog woman.
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
Before starting at Tailster I traveled for 2 and half years all around south east Asia and Australia. I was like Ace Ventura making friends with all the wild and stray animals. It was glorious.
Other than that, I’ve just moved house and due to the distance of travel between work I’ve needed a dog walker for Duke. He now has one thanks to Tailster and I’m sat here waiting for my tracked walk report because it is important stuff.
