kayla h.

apex dog walker & apex pet sitter

Kayla has been a resident of Apex since 2021 and has loved every second of it. As a former "Navy Brat", she's had the opportunity to live in many different places (from the midwestern USA to a desert island in the middle east); however, nowhere has felt more like home than North Carolina.

Her lifelong dream has been to work with animals and, after a decade of customer service jobs, she finally took the plunge to fulfill it. She worked in management at a pet resort for a couple of years before pivoting towards more of a clinical role in animal care; at present, she is a Veterinary Assistant at Trinity Animal Hospital while she works towards a degree in Veterinary Medical Technology at Central Carolina. She decided to join Peak City Puppy to balance the medical side with some laid-back, one-on-one pet care (and also to drown in doggy kisses in her free time).

When she's not at school or work, she loves to go on hikes with her boyfriend or kickbox with friends whenever possible. On her lazier days, she enjoys relaxing at home with her cats while working on digital art.

Kayla joined the team in 2022.
