Becca

Becca moved to Dallas in the spring of 2020 from Delaware. She graduated from the University of Delaware in 2014 with a degree in Anthropology. Becca has always had a love for all animals and spent years working with exotic animals such as reptiles and birds. In her free time, she loves getting to explore the parks, restaurants, and museums of her new home in Dallas. She is pictured here with her dog, Astrid, that she rescued as a stray. Becca’s favorite hobby used to be hiking with her dog but Astrid is no longer able to go on long walks, so Becca now loves getting to walk with all the dogs at Privileged Paws instead!

Tammy

Tammy recently retired from her desk job and is excited to now have the time to do what she really enjoys: helping people by helping their pets, and being active outdoors. Her passion is her three Golden Retrievers, but she loves all animals. In her spare time she likes to cycle at White Rock Lake, hang out with friends and family, and visit local craft breweries.

Alex

Alexandra (Alex) graduated from TWU with a BS in Dietetic Nutrition. She is currently completing her internship program to become a registered dietitian. While her main passions include nutrition, food, and cooking, in her spare time, Alex enjoys weight training, inline skating, and connecting with friends and family. Since Alex enjoys just about any outdoor activity working for Privileged Paws is the perfect fit for her. Alex has several years of pet care experience and voluntarism at her local animal shelter. Since Alex normally takes the weekend shift, if you book on weekends, it is highly likely you will become very familiar with her. Pictured here is Alex with her childhood dog, a blue heeler/boxer mix, she and her family rescued in 2004.
