Angeline Pantazis, Administrative Director
Leaving the hustle and bustle of Central Massachusetts for the warmth and glow of Sarasota, Florida, Angeline now finds herself overseeing the daily operations of each Bayside Pet Resort facility as the Director of Operations.
Surrounding herself with a wonderful management team full of talented pet professionals, Angeline has grown with the company as they expanded from their flagship location in Sarasota, South to Osprey and then East to Lakewood Ranch.
She is a motivational leader who prioritizes 5-star customer service and top quality care. Her goal is to assure that your precious pets are happy, healthy and treated like family.
Holding a background in administrative management, her leadership skills and passion for success were the backbone of much that Bayside has accomplished in the past few years. Topping it off with a positive attitude and excellent communication, our staff’s cohesion and proficiency is all thanks to her business strategies.
Continuing with Bayside’s philosophies, family values and philanthropic spirit, she has created a welcoming environment that keeps lasting relationships with business partners, the local community and clients alike.
Angeline kept her focus on Public Relations while earning a bachelor’s degree in Arts in Communications from Worcester State University. In order to offer 5-star quality pet care, she has continued to educate herself and strive for excellence in the industry. She is a member of International Boarding & Pet Services Association (IBPSA), an industry organization that requires members maintain strict standards for pet care. Angeline also attends several pet boarding and daycare conferences, studies and receives certification for infectious disease management, and became a notary to continue succeeding in all areas. Her hardworking drive has landed Bayside Pet Resorts many awards and certificates from local and national organizations.
She currently resides in Sarasota with her spoiled Yorkie mix Lola, her crazy Calico Maggie and her husband Russ, of course (as if he is last in line). If you see her strolling by, please stop her to say hello!

Jennifer Strickland, General Manager – Osprey
Jenn traded in mountains for beaches! She and her family made the long trek from Colorado to Florida, which included moving their horses, dogs, and cats. Jenn has always been passionate about animals, spending the last 16 years of her professional career in the animal welfare field. Her previous position was as the Executive Director/CEO of a large shelter outside of Denver which cared for nearly 10,000 animals per year. Additionally, she has enjoyed showing multiple breeds of dogs since she was a young girl. Jenn is excited to be on the Bayside team and looks forward to meeting you and your pet!
Julie Dejnowski, General Manager – Lakewood Ranch
Julie has been with Bayside Pet Resorts since June 1, 2012 when the very first location opened its doors! She began as a part time Pet Pal, eventually earning the position of General Manager through a series of promotions. Julie’s passion for animals has been an integral part of her life – from rescuing strays, part time obedience training, dabbling in dog shows, and even canine midwifery! She managed a private kennel for several years before joining our team. As Bayside grew, Julie became a mentor to our General Managers, instilling in them the philosophies that define Bayside Pet Resort. Julie has since brought her knowledge and dedication to our newest facility in Lakewood Ranch. Her genuine care and concern for our furry guests extends itself to clients and staff alike, creating a resort experience with a home-like feel!
