SYLVIA AND MICHAEL
Sylvia is incredibly grateful to be part owner of Sit Stay Play! What could be better than hanging out with dogs and cats all day? Throughout her life, she has cared for dogs, cats, fish, mice, guinea pigs and even snakes. To her, her fur babies are her kids so she definitely understands how very important her job is as a pet sitter! Along with her pet CPR certification, Sylvia has a bachelor’s degree in music. Her husband, Michael, is also an avid animal lover. He has raised and loved many pets throughout his life, but his favorites have definitely been his cats!
Sylvia and Michael have the joy of raising their two dogs; a malti-poo named Cooper and a miniature poodle named Tucker, and their cat, Beanie. They look forward to sharing their love of animals with your pets and carrying on the standard of care and compassion that Katy and Bo have established with Sit Stay Play!
Laura is a Tulsa native and grew up around dogs, cats, frogs, and fish. As far back as she can remember her family and extended family have always owned multiples dogs, which were always considered to be part of the family. She loves to spoil her dogs with long walks, car rides, treats, or just some good old-fashioned attention. Laura’s first pet was a Goldfish named Freddie, now she is the proud owner of Max, an Australian Shepherd mix, who she rescued a few years ago. When Laura is not spending time with Max, she is training for Spartan Races, playing soccer, reading, cooking/baking, or hanging out with family and friends.
Jes adores animals and nature! She has cared for pets and barnyard animals all over the world from Paris to Vancouver Island to Austin to our lovely Tulsa. Throughout her life, she has loved and cared for cats, dogs, birds, chickens, turtles, hamsters, horses, goats, and even a pet caterpillar named Kitty. She lives in a tiny home with her black kitty, Zero, and they are frequently caught playing piano and gardening together. Jes is a songwriter/singer/musician so you may also find her singing to your babies at times. In addition to her deep love of pets, traveling, gardening, and music, she is a graduate of Trinity School of Natural Health and is fascinated by the world of holistic nutrition for humans, as well as animals. If you have any questions about health concerns your pet may have, be sure to ask, and she may just have a natural cure idea up her sleeve.

Christian is from Tulsa and loves animals, so much so that he has 6 animals of his own; 5 dogs and a cat. He never imagined having so many pets under one roof, but he enjoys the fun that comes with it. He has been pet sitting for almost 10 years and loves knowing that the animals he stays with are being taken care of as if they are his own. He has never met a pet that hasn’t loved him and vice versa. Christian enjoys spending time with his wife and his dogs and cat at home, reading comic books, and cooking, but his specialty is homemade dog treats!
Susie grew up in the countryside of Claremore, OK helping her family care for all kinds of animals like horses, cows, chickens, cats, and dogs.

Together their pets consist of a cat named Twinkle and a rabbit named Sushi.
Sara grew up in a small town in Arkansas and has been an animal lover ever since she can remember. Growing up, dogs and cats were a huge part of her family. Her parents taught her and her brother to love and care about all animals, they even had a pet squirrel! While walking dogs with her Mom at the animal shelter in Arkansas, Sara fell in love with two adorable pups and had to give them a forever home! They were a Pyrenees/Lab mix named Jasper, and a husky mix named Ozzy. They are spoiled rotten! Sara is an artist and graduated this past year with her degree in Fine Art. Shortly after she married her high school sweetheart, James, and moved from Arkansas to Tulsa! She loves meeting any new furry friends and looks forward to caring for your pets and giving them lots of love!
There are few things in life that Mandi loves more than animals! She tries to befriend every pet that she meets and feels like this job was made for her! Growing up, she always had at least one cat and dog in the house, and also had a variety of other pets from fish to gerbils! One of her end goals in life is to have a little farm with alpacas, chickens, goats, and more! Aside from loving animals, Mandi likes to stay busy by spending as much time with her fiance, family, and friends as possible! She also enjoys traveling, camping, kayaking, snowboarding, shopping, and crafting. She has an adorable pitbull named Munchkin and a sweet chunky kitty named Meow Meows. They are both VERY spoiled and they know that they rule the house! Mandi has even mastered homemade pupcakes and tuna cake to ensure that their birthdays are always extra special! She is excited to have the opportunity to show your pets the same love and care that her spoiled babies get daily.
