Jocelyn

Resort Operations Manager
Jocelyn's Bio

Jocelyn has been with WCPR since October 2016. She started as a Receptionist and in July 2018 she was promoted to the Resort Operations Manager. She is responsible for the guest and client care/experience as well as for some of the great pics/videos you may find on our FaceBook page or other social mediums.

Believe it or not, she prefers animals to people, although you’d know that talking to her. She is passionate about the bond between pets and their people. She has a zoo at home that consists of dogs, cats, a box turtle, fish, and a gerbil. When she’s not working she would rather be hiking or sleeping.

And one thing you would NEVER guess about her is she is terrified of butterflies and moths.

Cheyanne

Shift Lead – Guest Services
Cheyanne's Bio

Cheyanne has always had a love for animals since she was little. She grew up with a lot of different pets from dogs and cats to snakes and lizards! As she got older she knew she wanted to work with animals as a career and began with volunteering at the Richmond SPCA. When she found an ad asking for a Kennel Attendant at West Chester Pet Resort, she jumped at the chance to be able to cater to pets, something she already does with her two Beagles at home. She was promoted to Shift Lead in May 2018.

Cheyanne is always eager to learn new and exciting things and hopes to experience all that the animal care career has to offer!

Morgan

Professional Pet Trainer
Morgan's Bio

Morgan developed her love for training in 2009 when she began showing Lily, her Border Collie/Husky mix in Obedience and Agility competitions in her hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. Throughout her first year of training, Morgan realized just how deep the bond between human and dog can be. That is what inspired her to continue training. Morgan and Lily have won many awards and titles together, such as Reserve Grand Champion in 4-H Obedience, Class Champion in Agility, Community and Urban Canine Good Citizen, and multiple trick dog titles!

Upon moving to Virginia in 2013, Morgan began teaching group training classes. Here, she realized just how rewarding it is to assist others in reaching their training goals and to help them have a more enjoyable life with their pets. Additionally, Morgan adopted a young Beagle mix, Blake, in 2014. Blake instantly became her side-kick and training “demonstration dog.” He has the very important job of showing other dogs (and their humans!!) what behavior should look like so people can visualize their goals. He is also a registered Therapy Dog and regularly visits hospitals and schools to bring joy into the world. Together, Blake and Morgan have earned all three CGC titles, Expert trick dog titles, and multiple first-place scores in Rally and Obedience competitions.

Morgan loves to further her knowledge and is constantly reading up on pet training literature. All of her methods are force-free, fear-free, and backed by science. She can teach basic manners and obedience, competition prep, ticks, therapy dog prep, and so much more! She also specializes in behavioral “rehab” so your reactive dog can one day enjoy being around other pups as well.

Her pups are, officially, Lilybadilly CGCA CGCU TKA ETD and Shake-N-Blake CGCA CGCU RN THDN TKA ETD. We can help your pets get credentials, too!

Wes

Guest Services
Wes' Bio

Wes grew up in Sunbury, North Carolina and has been a part of our team since July 2018.

He chose to work at WCPR because he loves dogs and is passionate about trying to make each dog his best friend. He has 1 dog, JR. When he’s not working he can be found walking JR at the park or playing video games.

One thing you might never know about Wes is that he broke his back several years ago – thank goodness your better, Wes!

Cyann

Guest Services
Cyann's Bio

Cyann grew up in Hinton, West Virginia and has been with us since July 2019. She was drawn to WCPR because she’s always loved working with animals. She’d like one day to go to Veterinary school and is hoping this will give her more experience and be a good stepping stone to getting there.

Cyann has one dog, Del. She loves taking her dog hiking and playing video games.

Something you might never guess about Cyann is that she can play 6 different instruments and did bull riding when she lived in West Virginia. Ride ’em cowgirl!

Taylor

Client & Guest Services
Taylor's Bio

Taylor (aka “T2”) is from Chester, Virginia and has been one of the WCPR team for as long as he can remember. Working at WCPR has kept him very busy for the past few summers but he works with us part-time during the school year. He is a current student of the Chesterfield County Technical Center Culinary Program. His lifelong dream is to be an Executive Chief – he wants one day to own a restaurant with his mom too.

He loves building trust with new pets as well as telling pet parents how their fur-baby is doing during their stay.

When Taylor is not working you’ll find him playing video games, experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes or spending time with his girlfriend.
