Owner/FounderJennifer Taylor managed almost 1 million square feet of commercial biotech properties with the leading REIT company for the life science industry. While climbing the corporate ladder she had to have an emergency surgery, months later was struck with auto immune problems forcing her to go on disability unable to work, barely able to get out of bed much less function.
During the recovery of her surgery, Brezzi found Jennifer and her family. Being an avid cat “worshipper” she never thought of having a dog, She loved them, as she loves all animals but was definitely a cat person. Until Brezzi locked eyes with her. Even though she could barely walk due to the surgery, she asked to see this big slightly chaotic chocolate Labrador puppy and as she chewed on Dwayne, her husbands ankles, her fingers, and Dishion her son’s shoes Jennifer felt a connection like never before and was deeply in love. They left that afternoon, and every time she closed her eyes she saw Brezzi’s eyes. The next day the entire family picked up Brezzi, without any knowledge of how ill she’d soon become and how much Brezzi would be a part of Jennifer’s healing journey. Read more about Jennifer Taylor
