Meet Our Staff!

Bryn Paige Ambrose
Owner and Founder

 

​I graduated from Boston College in May, 2016. As a child, I wanted to be a veterinarian, so at age eight I started volunteering at a local emergency veterinary clinic.  I volunteered there on and off for about five years total. While volunteering, I shadowed the veterinarians and was able to sit in on surgeries, prep animals for surgery, and assist in the administration of various vaccinations and shots. I interacted with both healthy and sick dogs and cats on a day to day basis, and through this experience I became quite knowledgeable on proper animal behavior and how to spot unhealthy behavior. Because I was such a devoted and hard-working volunteer, I was hired as a Kennel Technician at age 15. As such, I cared for healthy animals that were boarding at the clinic. I walked dogs, fed them, and made sure that they were comfortable in their temporary housing. I was also responsible for bathing dogs and caring for homeless pets that were abandoned at the clinic, helping them find new homes. After two years of working at the clinic, I moved on and started working for a boarding kennel. The boarding kennel I worked at was owned and operated by a certified dog trainer, so while there, I was able to pick up on various training techniques and occasionally assist in training activities. I worked at the kennel for almost two years before moving to Boston. In Boston, I started dog walking. I have worked with dogs of all shapes and sizes, from three pound teacup yorkies to eighty pound Atlanta police dogs.

Dog Walker

 

Hey! My name is James Williams. I got my first dog, Sadie, when I was a teenager, and she is the reason I love dogs today! Sadie showed me how caring and kind dogs can be, and taught me to truly value their friendship. After Bryn and I began our relationship in 2015, I came on-board with the team at The Daily Stroll, and I've never enjoyed my job so much. Every day I get to come to a job I love, and simply play with, exercise, and entertain your dogs. I hope to get to know your "best friend" soon!

Professional Dog Groomer
Hello everyone! I was born in Brazil but have lived in Boston most of my life.  When I was just a child, before even socializing with people, I was already socializing with dogs of all shapes and sizes! No discrimination! I began volunteering at a local grooming salon at the age of 8 and became intrigued by the idea of caring for our furry friends on a physical sense, which is directly tied to their health and overall well-being and happiness. I worked as a bather and dog groomer assistant before attending Ocean View Dog Grooming School to attain my certificate. After a year of grooming, I then worked at The Continental Shoppe for another year surrounded by top groomers who helped me further refine my skills. I have worked in big corporate salons to small one-man businesses, and am now lucky enough to join The Daily Stroll crew whose priority is our loving pets and the connection between us and our clients.

Christine Gabrielsen
Daycare Attendant (Brookline)
 
"Hello! My name is Christine and I am one of the daycare attendants at the Brookline location. I first started working at The Daily Stroll in October of 2015 during my senior year of college, and I loved it from the beginning! Once I graduated, I lived abroad for a year, and upon my return, I was ecstatic to be able to continue working at The Daily Stroll. 
I grew up in a household with two cats, but when I was 11, I decided that I wanted a dog. I spent the next 2 years researching dog breeds and trying to convince my parents that I was responsible enough to care for a dog. When I was 13, my parents finally gave in and we got a cocker spaniel, who I named Oliver. Now, he lives in New York with my parents. Although I visit occasionally, I am grateful that working at The Daily Stroll allows me to spend time with other loving pups!"

Assistant Manager
 
Greetings! I am from Colorado and just moved to Boston in early March. At an early age, I begged my parents to get me a little dog. At the time, we already had a black lab, but I was very adamant that I wanted a small white dog. They granted my wish with a little Chihuahua named Beans :) After seeing my love for Beans, my uncle and aunt suggested that my dad and I start fostering. We began fostering for Safe Harbor Lab Rescue, and I completely fell in love. I am very proud to say that we fostered out 11 dogs! I simply could not get enough time with the dogs, so while in my junior year of high school, I started a job at a local doggie daycare. Through dog daycare, I learned the meanings behind different behaviors and how to interact appropriately with the dogs. After having the opportunity to meet so many great dogs, I decided I needed my own. On November 11th, 2017, a little 30 pound Cattle Dog/Sharpei mix named Harvey came into my life, and he's been my best bud ever since! I am super pleased to be in Boston at The Daily Stroll, and hope to meet you soon!
Liz Guerra
Daycare Attendant (Brookline) & Professional Groomer
"Hey! My name is Liz, and I'm kind o a "jack of all trades" here at The Daily Stroll. I started working here in May of 2017. Prior to working at The Daily Stroll, I had 5 years of experience working professionally with dogs as a daycare attendant/dog bather at a Grooming Salon and Daycare facility located in West Roxbury. Here at The Daily Stroll, my time is split almost evenly between dog walking, dog bathing, and working as a daycare attendant at either facility. I have two dogs of my own which are my world: Mimi, who is an 8 year old Basenji/Cocker Spaniel mix, and Ms. Zoey, who is a 16 year old permanent foster dog that I met while working here at The Daily Stroll. I can't wait to meet and snuggle your pups!"

Matt Brunner
Daycare Attendant (Allston) & Dog Walker
"Hey, Everyone! My first name is Albert, but I go by Matt. I graduated from Bridgewater State University in 2018. I grew up in Westchester, NY. I started working at TDS in January. 
I love animals more than anything. I grew up with multiple dogs and have been taking care of friends' and families' dogs since I was a child. Now that I live on my own, I don't have time yet for a dog of my own, but working at The Daily Stroll allows me to get as much time dealing with animals as my schedule allows! I can't wait to get to know your dog!"
Madie Janik
Daycare Attendant (Allston) & Dog Walker
 
"Much to my parent dismay, my first word wasn't mama or dada like most normal children - instead it was puppy (clear indication that I would grow up to be a dog lover :))! As a kid, I was enamored with dogs of all shapes and sizes. I went to regional dog shows for my birthday parties, and by the time I was a 5th grader, I could name over 70 different dog breeds. As I grew up, my love for animals, and especially dogs, hasn't changed.
I walked and pet-sat dogs of all breeds throughout middle and high school. In addition, I spent my summers working with sheep, chickens, cats, and dogs on my Grandma's farm in Michigan. While I am a junior studying at BU, I haven't forgotten about my dogs back home in Chicago! I have a 12 year old Lab/Great Dane mix and a 3 year old Pitbull that I love to pieces! I can't wait to meet and work with all the incredible dogs at TDS!"

Lucy McGinnis
Dog Walker
"Growing up with an assortment of dogs, cats, rodents, and reptiles, I have always loved animals of all kinds. I started dog-sitting for my neighbors in Atlanta when I was in junior high. When I came to Boston for college in 2014, I really missed having pets around, so I started taking care of animals for families here, too. In 2018, I graduated from BU with a degree inMarine Science, and started working for TDS in January 2019. I love walking the same dogs on a regular basis and really getting to know their unique personalities."

Laura Lyke
Daycare Attendant (Brookline)
"Hello, I'm Laura! I am a Counseling Psychology graduate student at Boston College and an adorer of dogs. Although I spend a lot of my time studying how to work with people, many of those interests and skills can be applied to caring for pups! I am very passionate about mental health, and I know that being around animals is important for mine :) When I left my hometown of Ripon, Wisconsin for grad school in Boston, I missed the therapeutic experience of regularly interacting with animals (especially my own dog, Lucy, who is a 10-year-old Rat Terrier). Now, I am so fortunate to work in an environment full of energy, smiles, and wagging tails. I am grateful to be at The Daily Stroll and can't wait to spend time with your pups!"
