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.
