Nikki previously worked in the pet care industry as a Dog Walker, Animal Shelter Volunteer, Groomer, and Veterinarian Technician.

If you've been to Stone Dog Inn, chances are you've seen Nikki Ribeiro! Nikki started SDI back in 2008 and we are SO glad that she did. Nikki is almost always on site and is constantly creating new ways to make SDI your dogs home away from home. When Nikki isn't at SDI, she can be found snuggling up at home with her own fur babies - Whaler, Tucker, Sedona, Pigeon & Paco!
Aughtum joined our team after a decade in the hospitality and catering industry. She graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a bachelor's in Hospitality Management. She comes from a small business and operational background and loves working with people! When she is not at Stone Dog she loves hanging out with her husband & twins Maeve and Mason, cooking, or trying new restaurants!
Maggie graduated from UMass Boston in 2013 and was fortunate enough to spend the following years with an assortment of wonderful travel experiences and small city apartments. Ultimately, she found that there's no place like home and back to MA she came. After nearly a decade in the food service industry, she found her true passion was working with pups, and when she found SDI, she knew it was meant to be. When Maggie isn't at SDI making furever friends, you can find her hanging with her cats, driving all over the country, adventuring with her husband, or eating half a dozen donuts at a time--PVDonuts or bust!
