The TPSA Board of Directors is comprised of Cathy Vaughn, Deanna Schaar, and Jessica Milam. They work tirelessly to plan and execute the annual Texas Pet Sitters Conference. This was the ninth year that this conference has been held and it’s no easy undertaking, especially as attendance continues to grow.
