Meet Our Team
Corissa, Assistant Manager
Corissa’s been with Pups On Passyunk for over two years, and she’s loved every single dog she’s walked like they’re her own. Specialties include helping anxious pups feel at ease, finding that one neck/ear/chin/butt scratch that makes your pet happy-twitch, and writing end-of-visit reports that make you feel like you were there the whole time. She’s also a freelance writer, avid reader, native Ohioan, and devoted cat owner. Her first instinct at any party is to find the household pet and befriend them.
Victoria, Senior Staff
Victoria is an avid animal lover and advocate. She worked as a Community Support Counselor, Adoption Counselor, and Lifesaving Counselor at ACCT Philly, Philadelphia's open-intake shelter. While working at ACCT Philly, she gained experience working with a variety of dogs, from sassy little chihuahuas to giant lovable pitties. She has a soft spot for nervous animals and finds no greater joy than befriending them and gaining their trust. When Victoria is not walking dogs, she enjoys making art in West Philly where she lives with her chonky cat, Newman, her partner, and her partner's cat, Pudding.
Rebecca, Scheduling Coordinator
Rebecca has grown up around cats and dogs her entire life. Originally from the Jersey Shore, she made the jump to Philly 3 years ago.
