Meet the Dingo’s Staff


We look forward to meeting you, but first, here is a little bit about us!

Julia B.

Julia has been working at Dingo’s since February of 2017 and has worked every position here from daycare attendant to dog walker to bus driver!  She has been our General Manager since August of 2021 and, since graduating from Catch Canine Academy in June of 2022, she is now our in-house trainer and behavioral advisor!

Becca J.

Becca, a life-long Beverly Panther, has been working at Dingo’s since February of 2019.  She is the owner of Blue, a Silver Lab rescue, who, like Becca, enjoys hiking and spending time at our daycare.   In addition to holding the title of Floor Manager of our facility, Becca also helps Julia and Nancy with a number of the administrative/office work and boards dogs out of her home in Beverly. She can be reached at: becca@dingosdogsitting.com.

Marilyn D.

Marilyn is a semi-retired registered nurse who splits her time between caring for patients, caring for dogs, and, as Nancy’s mother, caring for Nancy’s kids!  As an avid animal-lover, Marilyn has been the owner of countless dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, frogs, salamanders, turtles, birds, fish, and even an iguana.  But her favorite animal of all has always been “man’s best friend.”

Robert B.

Robert is an industry veteran with many years of doggy daycare experience under his belt – both in the Pacific Northwest and locally – before he came to us in February of 2020.  In addition to having a strong knowledge of group play and dog social dynamics, he is also skilled at maintaining best practices for our various daycare processes and procedures.   His penchant for “handy-work” also comes in, well, handy, at the daycare! 
*Fun fact: Robert also has his B.S. in Geology from Salem State University!

Phil C.

Phil volunteered his time at Dingo’s for years before becoming an official employee in January of 2021.  His extreme devotion to our pack members combined with his scrupulous cleaning skills make him an excellent team member!

Fae

Fae has been with Dingos since 2021 when she came on as a dog walker. Over the past couple years her role has expanded to also include dog boarding and bus driving. Over her tenure with us Fae has logged many steps, become “Pack Pro Certified” and obtained a certification in Pet CPR!

A lifelong fitness enthusiast (and former instructor), Fae lives in Beverly with her husband of twenty years, her two teenage children, her dog Bluto, and the most dog-friendly cat you will ever meet, Lynx!

Bobby D.

You will occasionally find Bobby D driving our Dingo’s bus and walking dogs for us in the Swamspcott, Lynn and Marblehead areas.  A former graduate of Swampscott High, Bobby also happens to be Nancy’s brother!  After serving 10 years on the New York City police department, Bobby moved back to Mass and joined the Air Force reserves; he now works full time at Westfield Air Force base in Western Mass but enjoys coming home to the Nortshore whenever time allows.  

Chelsey M.

Chelsey began working at Dingo’s in 2015 as a daycare attendant.  She left in 2017 for a training apprenticeship and went on to receive her AKC training certification not long after.  Now back at Dingo’s with a “OG” title, she assists both our dogs and our staff in reinforcement training and pack management skills.  She is also available for home visits for clients who need a little extra socialization training at home.

Nichole R.

Nichole began working at Dingo’s in April of 2021.  With no prior professional experience working with dogs, she has proven to be a quick learner and is able to manage a large pack with the skill and  dexterity of a seasoned staff member!  Blessed with an abundance of patience after working professionally in long-term care settings, her composure and warmth make her a wonderful addition to our Dingo’s pack! She is also one of our main content creators for our social media sites!

Alyssa G.

Alyssa, a Danvers native, has been working at Dingo’s since January of 2023.  She came to us with some prior professional dog care experience but has really honed her schools with us along with the help of Pack Pro, our dog daycare training platform.  In addition to working at Dingo’s, Alyssa is also enrolled in the animal care program at North Shore Community College.

Fun fact: Alyssa attended the same home daycare as Nancy’s oldest son (just a mere 20 or so years before him)!

Justine with her dog training certificate

Justine L.

Justine, a long time Wenham resident, joined Dingo’s in November of 2023. She has worked with dogs professionally for many years, having been a staff member at a doggy daycare in Wakefield for five years. Justine also walks and cares for many dogs in her neighborhood. Her love of dogs is evident as noticed by her quick rapport with all breeds, large and small.

Kat blowing bubbles for dogs at dingo's

Kat R.

Kat’s Lab, Luna, has been a daycare staple at Dingo’s since September of 2022, and in October of 2023, Kat tarnsitioned from a client to a staff member! When Kat is not in class or studying towards her Master’s in Accounting, she can be found on our play floor (often with bubbles in hand) as well as in our dog bus. She brings a calming energy and an inviting enthusiasm to our team. We are so happy to have her (and Luna) in our pack!

Patrick playing with dogs at dingo's daycare

Patrick M.

Patrick has been with Dingo’s since August of 2022; he came to us with a love for and devotion to his family’s Golden Retriever, Kodi, but no professional experience in the canine industry.  Luckily for us all, Patrick proved to be a very fast learner!  With an innate sense of serenity, he brings a level-headed calmness and a high degree of patience into what can sometimes be a chaotic and overstimulating work environment (if you’ve ever heard 40 plus dogs bark simultaneously then you will know what I mean!).  He is kind, thoughtful and overall exceedingly pleasant to be around.  We are so happy to have him as part of our pack!

Aly U.

Aly and her dog Draco have been staples at Dingo’s since November of 2023. While currently enrolled in the Animal Care Program at North Shore Community College, Aly also makes time for horseback riding, a passion she has honed over the past several years.

Combined with a dog daycare attendant certification through Pack Pro, a Canine CPR and First Aid certification through Pet Emergency Education and an abundance of canine common sense, Aly has become an integral team member in only a short time with us. She hopes to eventually become a professional dog trainer; and we have no doubt that she would be capable of becoming a great one.

Mary P.

Mary came to us with a background in farm work but no professional dog care experience.  As suspected, the hard work required on a farm translated easily to her work at our dog daycare and she quickly rose the ranks due to her “can do ” attitude and large skill set.  Mary always comes from a place of yes, and because of that, she has worked for us as a dog walker, a dog boarder, a bus monitor, a van driver, and a dog daycare attendant.  She is also to thank for many of our social media posts as well as the mini photo shoots with our packmates.   When Mary is not working, she loves to paint and draw; of course, some of her favorite subjects are our pack members!
