President & CEO
A vigorous passion for animals led Pet and Home Care Founder and Owner Tiffany Lewis to launch a pet sitting business in 1999 at the young age of 17. Over 20 years later, Pet and Home Care has evolved into a company that services over 125 customers a day and is rapidly expanding. Tiffany takes a great sense of pride in knowing that Pet and Home Care has held the Angie’s List Super Service Award for eight years for services throughout Maryland and Washington D.C.
Tiffany says that her favorite part of being a momtrepreneur is “Providing much-needed services to our customers and knowing that the animals are receiving great care. I love providing affectionate care to the animals and helping our employees grow.” Tiffany has been around animals since birth and has professionally cared for thousands more including reptiles, horses, and goats.
In April 2018, Tiffany welcomed a healthy and active baby boy named Everett. He already adores animals and always tries to pet their seven-year-old Shih Tzu Millie. Everett says he looks forward to running the business one day! Tiffany’s favorite activities include; hiking, yoga, cooking, attending cooking classes, caring for Everett, reading, and anything related to the growth and betterment of her business.
A fun fact about Tiffany is that she used to want to be a veterinarian. As a teenager, she realized that she could not handle performing surgeries or euthanasia.
Tiffany got into pet sitting and found it more rewarding because the animals are always happy to see you, unlike at the vet where they tend to cower. This led to a high school business that transitioned into a life-long career!
