Cheryl Shea

Cheryl Shea has been with Pet Paradise since the Sanford location opened in April 2008. She has worked her way up through her hard work, dedication, and love of animals.

Cheryl is originally from Maryland, but has called Central Florida home since 1989. She used to breed Scotties, and some of her puppies, now all grown up, come to Pet Paradise for haircuts and vacations!

Cheryl loves to spend her work days taking pictures of all of our guests, and is responsible for most of the wonderful pictures on our facebook page. She currently has 5 kids, 3 Scotties, a rescue Shih-Tzu, a Blue and Gold Macaw, and a husband. She is pictured here with her Shih-Tzu, Freeway, named for where he was found.

Joy Ruggiero

Joy joined Pet Paradise in 2011 after a successful career selling books, first to consumers, then to libraries. Eager to find a career that would utilize her MBA as well as her passion for pets, Pet Paradise was a perfect fit. Transferring from University Blvd (Jacksonville) to join Sanford's team brought her closer to her grown son in Orlando - another perfect fit.  Her family also includes Champ, pictured, a 7yr old Shepherd/Rotti mix.
