Ellen Briggs is a resident of Blackstone, one of the communities within Vistancia.  She moved here from Indianapolis, Indiana, in November 2015 with her husband, son, and two rescued cats. 

Ellen has a Bachelor of Science Degree from Indiana University and spent the majority of her 30-year career working for Fortune 500 companies specializing in corporate education, performance management, and organizational development.  After relocating to Peoria, AZ, Ellen decided to leave corporate America and focus on her love for pets & homes and use her organizational skills to form Vistancia Pet & Home Sitting. 

Over the years, Ellen’s family has included dogs, cats, fish, and a few turtles and salamanders found in and around the yard.  She has been an animal lover, rescuer and advocate since she was a little girl.   One of her most cherished memories is rescuing a wounded black cat in Chicago, nurturing her back to perfect health, and finding her a home for a couple who just lost their cat to old age.  

Ellen and her husband have lived in more than ten states over the years, and she was a single-mom/homeowner for fourteen years, so she has plenty of experience handling home emergencies.  Ellen will take pride in watching over your home like it was her own. 

Ellen Briggs is Pet Tech Certified. Pet Tech™ is the first international training center dedicated to  CPR, First Aid & Care for dogs and cats.
