Tessa Thomas was born and raised in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She has maintained a lifelong interest in animals. Tessa has explored many aspects of that interest, including participating in the zoo program at Busch Gardens and traveling to Nicaragua on a research trip to study Howler monkeys. She attended college in Boston before returning to the sunny south and completing an associate degree in business at Santa Fe State College in Gainesville, FL. While living in Gainesville, Tessa began working at Pet Paradise Gainesville where she found the career she truly loves. Tessa has worked hard to advance within the company, and has previous experience as resort supervisor. Tessa is thrilled to be back in the Palm Beaches, and she loves seeing her four- legged clients every day. She is passionate about both dogs and cats and makes sure they feel comfortable and content, and she treats each animal like her own beloved pets. Tessa has three pets: Buckley, her rescue dog who is now 80lbs and growing, Layla, a chocolate lab mix, and Lucy, a five-year-old orange tabby cat who has been with her since Boston.
