Joshua Mayweather – Operations Manager
Jacky Okomski – Administrative Assistant
Now this is a story all about how my life got flip-turned upside down, And I’d like to take a minute and sit right there, And tell you how it all began,
In South Jersey born and raised, With my roomies at Rowan was where I spent most of my days, Chillin’ out, goofin’ off, studyin’ real hard in the library of the school
When a couple of guidance counselors started gettin’ serious, Said I had to complete an internship in order to graduate, That’s when they hooked me up with HousePaws, I thought all right it’s time to grow up.
I wished for graduation to finally come and when it did, I got in my cap and gown, And walked down the isle to get my degree, With my family and friends all proud of me
I pulled up to HousePaws about 8 or 9, And I yelled to Rowan, yo I’m done smell ya later, I looked at my degree I was finally here.
I now spend most of my time hanging out with my boyfriend, Nick, and dog, Wade, always finding new adventures. I have always had an extreme love for animals and actually first planned on going to school to be a veterinarian until I realized science is not my thing. Then realized business was more my strong suit with animals along side. I grew up with at least one furry creature in my life. Now I have a cat, named Cupcake, who yes is a boy and he adores his manly name. Also, a gigantic Greater Swiss Mountain dog, named Copper, who is the biggest baby who thinks he is a lap dog. Last but not least, the newest addition, my little Chihuahua, Wade, who I recently adopted. All together it’s one big happy family!

She quickly developed an Elmyra-Duff-like affection for anything with fur or feathers (and sometimes even scales). She has a soft spot for mixed breeds and sees rescues as treasures. The softest spot in Cheri’s heart, however, belongs to her husband and her two cats.
