Tressie was born in Lubbock, Texas  where she also graduated from Texas Tech University. She relocated to Colorado both for her husband’s job, and their mutual love of the outdoors. She has always had a passion for animals and their care. Growing up, her home was full of rescue cats, house rabbits, fish, and hamsters.  Currently, she has a velvety soft Rex rabbit named Sol, another rabbit named PJ, and a Russian Blue cat named Luna.

Since moving, Tressie has been volunteering with the Colorado House Rabbit Society. With over twelve years of experience working with House Rabbits, she has found her work at the COHRS to be incredibly rewarding.

Tressie’s first introduction to Pet and People Sitters was as a client. Ashley and Sabrina did such a fantastic job watching over her cat, Luna, and rabbit, Bear, that she knew this was a company she needed to be a part of!  Working alongside the amazing team at Pet and People Sitters will allow Tressie to do something she truly enjoys, while giving her the freedom to make her art more than just a hobby.
