Holly McKay

Holly is our center manager and has been on The Pet Loss Center team since August 2016. She has over fifteen years in humane medicine and was most recently a Practice Manager at a large veterinary hospital. She shares her life with her two kids, three grandchildren, a Boston Terrier named Vito, a very needy Main Coon named Batman, and a Dumbo Rat named Olivia. Holly is originally from the Twin Cities of Minnesota and now resides in St. Pete Beach. Her hobbies include cooking, boating, spending time at the beach, volunteering, and listening to live music. One thing many people don’t know about Holly is she has a degree in Culinary Arts and enjoys refinishing and repurposing furniture and other flea market finds.

Holly enjoys working at The Pet Loss Center because she feels helping families through their difficult journey is extremely rewarding. She says, “Having the ability to show pets the dignity and respect they deserve in the afterlife is an incredible honor.”

Kelly Fusco

Kelly Fusco is our Relationship Manager and has been a part of The Pet Loss Center team since July 2017. She is originally from Annapolis MD, and has been a licensed Veterinary Technician for over a decade! Kelly has three fur-children, Leroy, Trooper, and Buddy. When Kelly isn’t at work you can find her kayaking, biking, and going to the beach. She loves living in St. Pete because she enjoys the local craft beer and music scene.

Kelly’s mission at The Pet Loss Center is to help veterinary professionals give every pet parent THEIR perfect ending to their wonderful journey. She says, “As a vet tech, I didn’t know how many families I failed. I enjoy educating my veterinary colleagues on Pet Loss and helping them elevate their standard of care.”

Alex is one of the newest team members to join The Pet Loss Center, starting just last month! He is originally from Tampa and shares his life with a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Hercules, and a Chinese Li Hua named Mittens. He enjoys powerlifting and eating when he isn’t on the road providing excellent service to our veterinary partners and pet parents. He credits himself for being a divergent thinker and overly creative. One of the things he enjoys the most is helping people through troubling times, which is why he felt he could make a difference as one of our Field Care Specialists.
