After having issues finding exceptional in-home pet care for her own floofins, Portia and Priscilla, Kristin Skelton left the corporate world with a mission to create “A Kenneling Alternative” for fellow pet parents.
Kristin spent 8+ years in the architectural, engineering and construction industry as a professional services marketer while pursuing her MBA at Northern Illinois University in the evenings. After graduating, Kristin found that spending her new found spare time at PAWS Chicago working with homeless animals was a rewarding use of her time.
After moving to Elmhurst, IL, Kristin saw a real need for a professionally run in-home pet care alternative. As both a passionate animal lover and savvy businesswoman, the creation Floofins & Company was the perfect combination of work and play. Kristin constantly strives to keep up with the latest and greatest practices in the pet care industry and connects with clients to meet their pet’s unique needs.
Along with managing the day-to-day activities of Floofins & Co. and it’s long-term vision, Kristin enjoys participating in dance and aerial classes, kayaking along the local waterways with her husband Chris and also hanging out doing “little kid and baby things” with their son Samuel and daughter Eden.
