Meet the Staff
Ever wondered what type of pets we have at home? Here's a little bit about each of us!
After 33 years of experience in the pet trade, Rich knows the ins and outs - whether its trimming your birds wings, choosing a new food for your pet, or troubleshooting your aquarium. He started the store for a love for birds and fish. Though he has an extensive knowledge on all topics, Rich is especially adept when it comes to the Aquarium side of PP&A. If you need to know how to start up a new tank or which fish will go together best, he's happy to help!
Co-owner Deb is married to Rich and has been working here with him since opening. Along with Cody, Rich and Deb have two happy cats named Oliver and Lila at home. Always happy to help you find what you need, Deb is the first of us to know about new products on the market. Being a small business, we don't always have the space for every product we want to sell. Deb would be more than happy to try and order a product or food you are looking for that we don't stock. Along with Rich, Deb has an extensive knowledge of the ins and outs of the pet industry.
Megan started working here in the fall of 2015 and is always happy to try and help you find what you are looking for. She has many animals at home, including livestock, horses, cats, and some happy labs (who are also therapy dogs) named Jack and Tully. She volunteers with her dogs on the PSU campus as therapy dogs for stressed students that miss their pets at home.
She spends most of her time here with the small animals and betta fish, and would be glad to answer any questions about them.
Scott is our store manager. He has extensive knowledge of freshwater fish and aquarium plants, and has multiple tanks of his own at home that house a variety of plants and fish. He also has three happy kitties - Simon, Salem, and Indie. His favorite hobbies are photography, skiing and, of course, fish!
He would be happy to answer any of your fish questions.
Mina, senior at P.R.H.S, started here in the fall of 2018. Mina has a guinea pig, two dogs, three cats, three rabbits, two goats, and an unnumbered amount of chickens at home. She enjoys theater, singing, traveling, reading and spending time with family.
Fletcher, a senior at P.R.H.S, joined us in July 2019. In his free time, he enjoys archery, skiing, and learning about animals.
He has three newts, a freshwater aquarium, a dog named Maggie, and four cats named Max, Mickey, Cesar, and Jax.
Yen started here in the late fall of 2019. She graduated from Dartmouth College in 2018, where she received a major in Studio Art and a minor in Biology, and is currently studying psychology at PSU. At home, she has a little mouse named Charlie, after the beloved film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. In her free time, she enjoys drawing and playing Dungeons & Dragons. We wish Yen the best in her future endeavors, as she has moved away. She will be greatly missed!

Maya, a graduate of PSU, joined the team in January of 2020. She graduated with a bachelors in Ethno Choreographic Studio Management, as well as minors in History and Hospitality Management.
