Karen Trocke-Kandah has been an employee with Very Important Pets for 13 years. She grew up in a small community in Minnesota and had grandparents and uncles with farms and plenty of animals. Horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, geese and ducks were always a part of growing up. Trixie and Maxine were her two dogs growing up. Today she has an avid passion and love for all animals, especially dogs. No matter what kind of day she is having and she sees how excited the animals are to see her, it makes everything else seem small. Karen lives in Chapel Hill with her husband, daughter and a beagle named Honeybee. They adopted Honeybee from a foster home in October of 2013.
