Kelsi Rae – Uptown

My name is Kelsi Rae and I just came up on my first year living here in New York. I am originally from Cheyenne Wyoming, but I also lived in Austin Texas for about 5 years. You would be right to assume I am a country girl, but I really am enjoying my time in the big city. Growing up in Wyoming I was around all types of animals, I’ve fed bison at a bison ranch, learned how to ride horses at an early age, and of course, had dogs of all sizes throughout my life. Currently, my dog lives back home in Wyoming with my parents and I miss him so much!

I moved to New York because I am a musician! I am a guitar player and a singer/songwriter. I love all kinds of music and am really enjoying the vast amounts of it you can find here.

I am very excited to join the Ruff City team! I have missed being around dogs since I moved, and I am enthusiastic to create those bonds and friendships that are unique with furry friends. I am used to the responsibilities that come with being trusted with other people’s pets and understand they are an extremely important priority. I have worked before as an overnight caretaker for pets and also at a groomer as a bather so I know how important trust and communication are in these kinds of vulnerable interactions. My approach to ensure everyone has a good experience is honesty, compassion, and understanding. I look forward to meeting you and your fuzzy family!
