Althea joined Heaven’s Pets team in November of 2012 after 25 years of executive administrative experience in the corporate arena. A graduate of Loyola University, Althea’s love affair with animals began as a child and has continued into her adult life.  Believing that there is a profound need for Heaven’s Pets services, she thoroughly enjoys talking with clients and advising them in their decision making.  “Our pets are our children and are a large part of our family.  Our beloved pets provide love and companionship into our lives and ask for nothing in return. Losing a beloved pet is a devastating experience and I enjoy the interaction with the family hoping that I can help them in some way to handle their grief.” says Althea.  Althea is the ONLY PLPA Certified Pet Loss and Grief Companion Specialist in Louisiana.

Althea resides in Metairie with her husband, Stephen, and a newly adopted Maine Coon cat named B.C.
