​​"Hello!

​My name is Tami, and I'm the owner of Creatures Professional Pet Care. I've spent my life fascinated by, caring for, and learning about all kinds of creatures. After a childhood filled with domestic and exotic pets (and my mother's infinite patience), I pursued an education in biology, with emphasis in zoology and animal behavior.

Bachelor's Degree, Biology
Master's Degree, Animal Behavior

​​While earning a Bachelor's degree in biology from Grand Valley State University, I spent three summer seasons as zookeeper at John Ball Zoo. Two years later, I received my Master's degree in Animal Behavior from Bucknell University, followed by an internship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Animal Center in Maryland, studying squirrel monkey behavior.

"Tami is amazing! Not only did she make Margot and Nova’s day by providing food, fun playtime, and cuddle time, she also sent pictures and a video so I could see them having fun. Tami is organized, prompt, professional and most importantly amazing with animals. I highly recommend her!" - Suzanne S.
​​Ultimately, I was smitten with the mitten, resettled in Michigan, and spent several years teaching biology at West Michigan colleges, including Kalamazoo Valley, Kellogg and Grand Rapids Community College, as well as teaching at my alma mater, GVSU.
​​Now I've returned to what I enjoy most, working hands-on with creatures, professionally caring for and enriching the lives of animals in the Kalamazoo area.​ 

​I have a human family of three children and a husband. My current pet family includes an adorable teddy bear dog named Lulu, an amazing rescue dog named Tillie, and three African cichlid fish (Gumball, Eric & Al Capone).
"Thank you so much for taking wonderful care of Louise. She was a happy, healthy bird when I returned! Taking care of an African Grey takes skill and confidence, and my bird thrived under Tami’s care. I cannot thank her enough and look forward to knowing that Louise is in good hands when I have to leave town." - Pat W.
As a pet owner, I know how important it is to find someone who is responsible and can be trusted, not only with the care of your animals, but also with access to your home. My goal is to provide your pets with the very best care, and to give you peace of mind when you're away from your pet family. I know all too well that separation anxiety can work both ways.

For the safety of my pets and yours, I am certified by PetTech and the American Red Cross in pet CPR & first aid, and carry a complete pet first aid kit in my car at all times.

I invite you to contact me to set up a free Meet & Greet consultation, and look forward to meeting you and your special family of pets!"

- Tami
