Our Team

Kaitlyn Boak
Manager

Kaitlyn grew up with 2 Rottweilers and 4 cats in London, Ontario. She went on to own, care for and train quarter horses in trail and barrel racing and graduated from Western University with her B.Sc with Honours. Kaitlyn put her skills to use as a veterinary assistant in Ontario and the Northwest Territories, as well as volunteering with various animal rescue groups across Canada and Guatemala. She also has experience working with birds of prey. When Kaitlyn isn’t lavishing her canine guests at Jet Pet with affection, she’s snugging with her three rescued fur babies while working on her Accounting diploma, or enjoying the many outdoor activities beautiful BC has to offer.

Kate Tremblay
Lead Pet Specialist

Growing up with cats and dogs fostered Kate’s love of animals. Excited to expand her knowledge and pursue her passion for animals while making some life long furry friends, Kate is thrilled to be working at Jet Pet. She currently lives with her two cats and golden retriever.

Alysha Bot
Veterinary Office Assistant

Alysha has been a Pet Specialist at Jet Pet since March 2012. Her background as a Veterinary Assistant in several clinics and animal shelters made the move to Jet Pet the next natural step when it came time for a change in work environment. Having lived in Vancouver and around animals all her life, Alysha’s favourite things naturally include spending time outdoors with her family, both two-legged and four, which include her Kuvasz-cross named Khai, her two rescue cats Cessna and Jellybean, and a horse.

Sydney Spare
Pet Specialist

Sydney’s love for animals started at an early age. From having dogs, birds, rabbits and bearded dragons, she has always had pets in her life. She started volunteering at JetPet in 2015, fell in love with the job, and now works part­-time. After high school, Sydney plans to continue working with animals. In her spare time, Sydney enjoys taking her Bluetick Coonhound, Max, and her Pointer, Dexter, on long walks and to dog parks to socialize with other dogs. Her favourite part of working at JetPet is getting to spend all day taking care of and hanging out with dogs and cats!

Lisa Coan
Pet Specialist

Lisa’s most rewarding experience to date was caring for the dogs at the Vancouver Animal Control Shelter where she volunteered as a dog walker and puppy playmate, taking her job to provide them with emotional support and compassion seriously. Ready to play and have fun rain or shine, Lisa is excited to join Jet Pet and get to know their furry clientele (and human too!). She has been a devoted pet parent herself over the years, and currently lives with Peter the rabbit.

Nikita Ryait
Pet Specialist

Nikita’s favourite childhood memories are the ones where she was surrounded by animals. Growing up with two dogs, eight tortoises, a parrot and fish as part of the household, a passion for working with animals was a natural progression and Nikita joined a private rescue team in India for dogs and cats. Now, as part of the Jet Pet team, she’s thrilled for the opportunity to connect with the beautiful four-legged souls that we care for on a daily basis.

Really amazing people working here. I’ve never seen my little guy run to people like that. They really took the time to get to know him and they always take super good care of him.
