Jenorise Mejia

I am Jenorise Mejia, owner of Winter Park Pet Concierge. This all started back when I was a young girl and was convinced I was going to be a Veterinarian when I grew up. Being raised with Pit Bulls, Great Danes, Angora cats and a chicken named “Peck” fostered my love for animals. At age 17, I spent nearly 400 hours volunteering at the Santa Monica Animal Shelter and at 19 began dog walking to raise money for missionary work. I continued walking dogs while I powered through over 20 years in the corporate banking industry. Most recently, I worked for a friend at a successful local dog walking company, but relocating to Winter Park gave birth to Winter Park Pet Concierge.

Through the years, I’ve cared for cats, dogs, turtles, ferrets, snakes, tarantulas, lizards and so many more; big, small, active, couch potatoes, young, old, dying and everything in between. All the purrs, barks, chirps, squawks, slithers and slobs have helped me grow even more in love with animals. They have changed my life and I want to give the pet owners of Winter Park, Maitland and Baldwin Park the resources they need for their pets.

There is always a need for professional pet sitters. Because the demand has increased, I have teamed up with my friend Carrie Wallick who owns iCare4Pets in the Wekiva area to create Mid-Central Florida Professional Pet Sitters Network. This network will allow us to refer new clients to qualified professional pet sitters in areas that we do not cover instead of simply telling them that we do not cover the area in which they seek service.

Away from work, I am a wife of 15 years and a mom of a super cool kid named Daniel, who just so happens to have autism. Learning to raise a child with autism has been one of the greatest learning experiences of my life. In 2013, together with another mother of a son with autism, I Co-Founded Putting the Pieces Together. It is a free non-profit support group for families with children and adults with special needs. It is a soft place to fall for families from every background who need support, resources and understanding without judgement.

Those who know me well know I am a sucker for a good concert, play or dance performance. Spending time with my friends is also a love of mine. I enjoy traveling and would love to learn how to hunt and fish.
