NANCY & OWEN

OWNERS

Majestic Paws is a family run business owned and operated by Nancy & Owen.  Nancy is the founder of Majestic Paws, and she started the company in 2008 while still in college. Having grown up around all kinds of animals, she always knew that she wanted a career in animal care, so owning Majestic Paws really is her dream come true. With experience walking dogs for other companies and with years of experience running her own dog walking company, Nancy is in charge of the day-to-day operations for Majestic Paws along with managing and maintaining client relationships.

Owen joined Majestic Paws full-time in 2015 as the business was growing to be more than one person could manage. With a bachelor’s degree in accounting, an MBA in operations management and years of high level industry experience, Owen helps with the day-to-day operations while also being in charge of all financial and administrative work.

Nancy and Owen have a daughter named Savannah, a son named Julian, a giant schnauzer named Diamond, and a golden retriever named Jasper.  When they are not working on Majestic Paws or taking their own dogs to the park, they stay busy by playing sports (mainly basketball and tennis), and spending family time with Savannah and Julian around the city.
