JAZMIN VANDERHOEK – COUNSELOR
jazmin-vanderhoek

Jazmin is a sweet, soft spoken girl with a huge heart! Her favorite things in life are animals and helping other people in any way she can. She says the favorite part of her job is making and seeing the dogs happy and she loves the play and kisses she gets back from them. She enjoys working in our “small dog” group the best and can be found playing hide and seek, singing, dancing, and spraying the dogs down with a cool hose in the summer. She started at VLP in November of 2014 and has been a wonderful addition to the team. She works really hard at what she puts her mind to and enjoys being outdoors, taking road trips, and cuddling with her cats in her free time. She has 4 dogs, 3 cats, and (how cool is this) 2 hermit crabs named Sherman and Herman!

SHAYLA LEWIS – COUNSELOR/CUSTOMER SERVICE

Shayla knew as soon as she saw Villa La PAWS that she had found a place to have a ton of fun learning to care for dogs. She enjoys the friendships that can be built with dogs and was a little shy when she first started working, but soon opened up and has since become known as the “kitty whisperer.” She’s been a part of the team since April of 2015 and has a kitty of her own named King Koba and a “French” beta fish named Monsieur Fishay. She enjoys all sorts of music, going to concerts, camping, and spending all sorts of time with her kitty.
