Owner / Manager
Originally from a small town in upstate NY, Margot moved to Wilmington in 2001. She graduated in 2009 from UNCW with a B.S. in Biology/Pre-Veterinary medicine. Prior to opening Leland Pet Resort, she spent a total of 12 years managing Sylvia's Pet Care Center and Paw Beach Pet Resort. Margot has completed courses in Business and Canine Behavior, and is certified in Pet First Aid/CPR. As an owner of Leland Pet Resort, Margot is excited to fully integrate the best of what she has learned to create an exceptional pet care experience for furry family members in Leland and the greater Cape Fear region. Margot and her husband Mike share their home in Leland with their 2 dogs Stella and Momo, and their 2 cats Quinn and Tess.
Sara has been with Leland Pet Resort since day one. She started as a Canine Play Attendant in 2017. Her intelligence, strong work ethic and love of animals (of course!) led to a promotion to Assistant Manager in 2018. Sara is very organized and always looking for ways to make sure everyone, furry and non-furry, is happy and safe at LPR. In her spare time, she loves to focus on her writing and spending time with her own beloved pets.
Karen joined our team in 2019. She is a strong and confident leader who is always coming up with new and innovative ideas on how to improve every part of the LPR experience. All our staff and furry guests benefit daily from her extensive animal behavior background. Plus, she's our onsite obedience trainer! (Check out the Training tab above.) When she's not working Karen is devoted to her wonderful family.
Danielle joined the LPR team in early 2021. She has a background with Animal Control and doggy daycare. She is the definition of “going above and beyond,” which she does every day for every client and pet that comes into Leland Pet Resort. You may often see her here with her dogs Lady Bug, Rebel and Baby.
