Deb Norris, Owner/Operator, Dog Trainer

I began My Pet Nanny LLC shortly after moving to Florida from Maine.  I grew up in Northern California and was raised with a variety of animals in our homes.  We had dogs, cats, fish, turtles, hamsters, and so on!  I was also in the 4H and raised and showed sheep, rabbits, and pigs.  I tended to horses, cattle, and other livestock.  Our family currently enjoys the company of Cali, a golden retriever, and Chai, a toy poodle. I am a graduate with distinction from The Victoria Stilwell Academy of Dog Training and Behavior and also owner of My Pet Nanny University.  My desire is always that we exceed our client's expectations and surprise them with excellence!   I am also a mother to our 15 year old son, Ryan, and wife of 25 years to my wonderful husband, Rob Norris."  Welcome to MPN and MPNU...we are so glad you are here.

Shannon Meara, Nanny

I moved to Tampa from Jacksonville, FL, in 2015 to study marine biology at the University of South Florida. I volunteered with the education department at the Florida Aquarium for 3 years and fell in love with teaching, so after graduating with my bachelor's in 2019 I am staying at USF to study for my Masters in Arts of Teaching Science Education for the 6th-12th grade. I can't wait to instill my love of nature and science into my students one day. While I love my life in Tampa, I miss my fur babies back at home. I have grown up surrounded by a variety of animals. From our dogs and cats to our past hamsters, fish, bearded dragons (and even snakes!) I adore them all. I cherish the times when I get to go home and visit them. I consider myself blessed to now have your pets to visit with and take amazing care of while I am away from mine! I am so excited to be joining the My Pet Nanny team!

Judy Bilek, Nanny

​Judy Bilek joined My Pet Nanny LLC in May of 2016.  She shares her story:  "I have been married to Dan for almost 20 years. We have a son, Devon (he's from Heaven....most of the time), who is 12 years old and of course, Ziggy, our four-legged baby who is about 8 years old (he's a rescue). I grew up in the Lutz area and have always had pets since I can remember (everything from snakes to horses to fish to dogs). My dog is such an important part of the family and I know that is how everyone else must feel about their family pets. I have taken care of family and friends dogs/cats/fish and always treat them as if they were my own!"  We are happy to have Nanny Judy in the MPN family!

I have been married to my husband, Igor, for 15 years. We have a 14-year old daughter, Mariana, and a 7-year old boy, Thomas. My family relocated to the sunshine state in 2012, and we have been living happily in Tampa as residents of the Grand Hampton community ever since. I have grown up around animals all my life and loved them unconditionally as one of the family.

Andrea Presny, Nanny

Andrea Presny joined My Pet Nanny LLC in October of 2017.  Andrea shares her story:  "My husband and I moved to Lutz, FL in February of 2016 from Chicago.  I worked as a public accountant for an accounting firm in Chicago for 21 years.  I also raised four children, 3 dogs (2 of which were rescues), several rescue cats, hamsters, guinea pigs, snakes, and my oldest daughter may have secretly even adopted a few mice and orphaned squirrels along the way.  I am the proud Grandma of four fur grand puppies, Cinnamon and Midnight, Emmitt and Raja!  I grew up in a home that was known for pet rescue.  My Mother brought in and accepted all animals, domestic and wild that were brought to our door. Some with injures or orphaned.  She is currently a Bassett Hound rescue, and I love my little Eil!  Not just a city girl, I also had the opportunity to visit and spend a lot of time on my grandfather's farm. There I learned the responsibilities of caring for cattle and other livestock.  I assisted my grandfather in training two beautiful cattle dogs, Barney and Google, for herding.  My experiences were very rewarding.  I look forward to sharing my love for all animals in a well organized and safe environment such as My Pet Nanny LLC!"  We are grateful to have Andrea on our team!
