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.

Christine Gabrielsen
"Hello! My name is Christine, and I started as a daycare attendant at the Brookline location, eventually moving on to become manager in 2019. 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. While working at TDS, I have adopted two mixed breed rescue pups - Wednesday and Potato - and they are my world. I am grateful that working at The Daily Stroll allows me to spend time with other loving pups like mine!"
Emma Netzel
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!

James Williams
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 met 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!
Liz Guerra
Professional Groomer
"Hey! My name is Liz, and I'm kind of a "jack of all trades" here at The Daily Stroll. I started as a dog walker, but then moved on to become a daycare attendant in the Allston facility, then the Brookline facility, then a bather, and now - after completing my schooling - a groomer! 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 three dogs of my own which are my world: Mimi, who is an 8 year old Basenji/Cocker Spaniel mix, Ms. Lila, who is a 6 year old French Bulldog, and Bradley, who is an 8 year old Min Pin Mix I "foster failed" while working at TDS. I can't wait to meet and snuggle your pups!" 
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."
