Welcome! My name is Steffani and I’m so grateful you’re here!


Here’s what I’m about:

  • I drink coffee until it’s time for a cocktail
  • I’ve got an amazing husband, Doug, who owns a Gym and has done some crazy things, like run 30+ miles on snowshoes and finished a 50-mile run… 
  • Doug and I have one tradition only: to take tequila shots on important days and holidays.
  • I’m mom to 2 dogs and 2 cats, 1 betta fish, aunt to 4 furbabes, sister to 2… you get the idea. Our family is made of animal lovers.
  • I worked in animal rescue and believe all animals have rights and will always fight for them.. by the way, adopt a senior pet! #shamelessplug 
  • Music makes life colorful and at the worst times, tolerable. I very easily get lost in almost any song
  • I’m the only vegan of my friends and family living in a hunting and fishing community
  • I’m vegan for the animals, all the other advantages are a bonus

Some of my favorite things

I’m blessed to say I grew up on the shores of Lake Superior and she still takes my breath away with her power and beauty. I’ve never known life without immediate access to the beach as my Great Grandfather purchased land on the shore and it’s been in our family since.

Over the years, I’ve done many things but have always had a passion for helping and working with animals. I’ve been a pet sitter, groomer and most rewarding, have worked at our local no-kill animal shelter UPAWS. I also recently launched a green, cruelty-free pet bandana line, The Blueberry Pug Pet Co, you can find here.

I’m committed to teaching others the reality of an animals life when they’re used for our luxuries and just how easy (and delicious) living vegan can be.
