MEET THE TEAM
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.
Emma graduated from Bristol County Agricultural High School in the Large Animal Science Program. She will be attending Unity College this fall studying conservation law enforcement with hopes of becoming a game warden. Emma is always spending time outside with the stone dogs and her two dogs as well. In her free time, she enjoys hiking and horseback riding. Emma has worked at SDI for over a year now and plans to continue working with dogs when she returns from college.
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, cats Ollie & JoJo, her rescue pup Cassie, 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!
Start your day with a smile and meet Jules! Since childhood, Jules was raised around all breeds of dogs and that’s where her passion started. Prior to joining our family, Jules worked retail jobs while maintaining school work, but she knew something was still missing. After her freshman year at UMass Dartmouth she decided to apply to Stone Dog and the rest is history! Outside of work you can find Julia going to school full time at UMD and hanging out with her fur-babies Bandit and Cali!
Lisa spent 17 years after high school working for the U.S. Postal Service. During her time there, she found that the highlight of her day was seeing the dogs out on route, and knew it was time to make a change. She started training to be a stylist in 2013 and has been loving it ever since! Lisa also works with a Veterinary Hospital and now shares her time with Stone Dog Inn. Lisa really enjoys the fun and pawsitive environment that SDI provides! In her off time, you'll find her out hiking with her Husband Sean, and her three dogs, Tucker, Jimmy, and Georgia.
