Meet the Travelin’ Chimp Team:

Daphne is originally from Tennessee but now enjoys life in Los Angeles. She had her own pet sitting service for two years, and now shares her passion and animal experience with TCAC.  Always patient and calm with each pet, Daphne creates a very individualized relationship with each client.  We are very lucky to have her with Travelin’ Chimp!




Debra loves calling Los Angeles home and that includes her own menagerie of dogs, cats, parrots, fish and a rabbit.  She is quite skilled in working with senior pets, administering various medications and caring for animals with special needs. Pets pick up on her positive upbeat personality and we know you will too- Travelin’ Chimp is happy to have her as part of the team!



Diana is Australian and lucky for us, has decided to call Southern California home. She owned and operated her own pet sitting business on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. Animals have always been a huge part of Diana’s life as she has cared for dogs, cats, horses, cows, rabbits, rats, mice, chickens, cockatoos and fish.  An extra bonus Diana brings is her skill as an Animal Reiki Practitioner. “Auntie Diana” as her clients call her, is a true animal expert and a real gift to the TCAC team!



Originally from Pennsylvania, Joe now happily calls Los Angeles home. He has owned his own petcare business for the past twelve years, but luckily has decided to share his expertise and knowledge with us. Ever calm and attentive, all pets relax in Joe’s capable hands. We are fortunate he chose to bring his animal husbandry skills to the TCAC team!



An East Coast transplant, Mark comes to us with a wide range of animal care expertise ranging from household pets to exotics. He also works as a part time handler with various animals educating children at schools and parties about animal husbandry.  Mark brings his love of all creatures to work each and every day and we are proud to have him on board at TCAC!
