Marie E. Beavers
Lower Garden District & Uptown
My name is Marie Beavers, I am the co-founder of Uptown Girls Pet Care. Pets are my passion and have always been a huge part of my life. I have owned dogs, cats, horses, parrots, squirrels, chickens, cows, raccoons, rabbits, pigs, ducks, fawn and one goat. I love all animals and believe every pet deserves respectful treatment and kindness. I am first aid and CPR certified and always continuing my knowledge of taking care of animals. I grew up on a farm in Central Texas. I thought I was going to become a veterinarian and volunteered at the local vet’s office when I turned 16. However, I soon discovered that I didn’t have the stomach for seeing animals suffer in pain or euthanasia.
I have always loved to work with animals and am always researching and learning more about how to best care for pets.
We (Heidi and I) decided to open our business in March 2010 and in September of 2010, I quit my full-time corporate job and we started Uptown Girls Pet Care. The wagging tails and looks of content on the faces of our clients were proof that I had made the right choice in quitting my full-time corporate job to follow my passion.
After years of success, I am proud of growing this amazing business. My job is both rewarding and challenging. After all, it is my dream job.
