Pet Food Advisor & Inventory Manager
Angelica is a true animal lover with a strong passion for nutrition, natural remedies and helping your pets be as healthy and happy as possible.
She grew up in a big family in Stockholm, Sweden, but decided in 2011 to study abroad and ventured over to the US to go to college. After a couple years in sunny California she decided that Portland, Oregon was her next destination and she’s been loving it here since day one.
Angelica is fascinated by aroma therapy, holistic medicine and healing through nutrition.
When she’s not at WILD, she might be crafting, gardening, cooking or playing piano. But most likely she’s spending quality time with her 4 year old Boxer mix, Bella, exploring the wilderness of Oregon.
Pet Food Advisor & Dog Trainer
Lindy was raised by wolves in the mountains, sort of. She is from snowy Mt. Shasta and grew up with dogs as both family and friends. Shortly after moving to Portland, Lindy adopted her best pal Macy-Moo, a silly & shy boy from the Kauai Animal Welfare Society. After watching the documentary Pet Fooled, Lindy became a passionate advocate for feeding a real (raw!), biologically appropriate diet. She believes in a whole body approach to the health and behavior of our four-legged companions.
Pet Food Advisor
Alannah grew up in a big Irish family constantly surrounded by animals - from guinea pigs to dogs to cows and sheep - and knows how important the connections are with our nonhuman family. For all that they support us, she believes we should support them! Alannah has lived in Portland for about four years and is so excited to be apart of a community that values holistic health and well-being. She spends most of her time being followed around by (and following around!) her ten-year-old Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Vixen. Vixen’s true passion is playing with tennis balls and she works hard to ensure that everybody knows it. Alannah is currently finishing up her degree at Lewis & Clark College studying Environmental Studies, and is glad to be apart of the WILD team!
