Hanna Hitchcock – Assistant Store Manager
I am 24 years old and have always been an outdoor enthusiast and athlete. I played collegiate softball at Gadsen State, where I obtained a degree in Aquatic Biology. I’ve raised Koi, Tilapia, Catfish, Freshwater Prawns, and many other fish as well as worked with building Aquaponic Systems. I have two dogs and a reef tank that I take a lot of pride in. Animals are my passion whether they are four legged and furry, or slimy and covered in scales. I love what I do and am always glad to help anyone set up their tanks or find the perfect treat for their best pup! To me, pets really are personal!
Evan Bethards – Shift Leader/ Service Tech
Hi my name is Evan, I’m 21 years young. I go to Kennesaw State for Information Securities and Marketing. Fish keeping has been a love and hobby of mine for nearly 10 years and there’s never a dull moment. The undersea world is really the final frontier and there is still so much to learn about. I have an incredibly loving 9 year old Golden Retriever and an obese and short tabby cat (physics is not on his side). We share the world with all of these animals and all they ask for is compassion and care; that is the least we can do. To need care is one thing, but to give it is what sets each other apart.
Tonni Taylor – Team Member
My name is Tonni Taylor. I am 24 years young and currently in school for marine biology. I love the aquarium hobby because there is alway something to learn. It is important for people to learn about our ocean habitats so we can understand the damage that has been done to it and how we can take action to fix it. I have two tanks myself; both are brackish with puffer fish. I would have to say, puffers are my favorite, whether freshwater, brackish, or marine. 🙂
DJ Pearson – Team Member/ Service Tech
Hi, my name is DJ and I have been with Creation crew for a little over two years now. It has been my passion to bring the best knowledge when it comes to anything aquarium related. My goal is to make sure everyone understands not only what makes a successful ecosystem but the science behind it. I plan to study biochemistry in college; working at Creation has been a great start as it has opened my eyes to a lot related to my major. I have always had fish tanks in my life, and have had many pets over the years, anything from uromastyx to parrots to cats and dogs. So, if you have questions about any of them, feel free to come in and talk to me!
Molly Richards – Team Member
Hello, my name is Molly Richards. I am 17 years old and I go to Woodstock High School. My dream is to become a veterinarian, and at Creation Pet I learn new things everyday leading up to it. I have always had a passion for animals, they bring me pure happiness. I also do some volunteer work at Papayago Rescue House for parrots to help out later in life with aviary care. Working there has taught me to understand how to each and treat other animals besides dogs. In my spare time, when I have some, I like it relax, watch movies and hang out. A lot of people call me Cinderella because I’m always cleaning for other people. I try to help out as much as I can and to be a good person. Helping people and animals is one of my life goals, and after I achieve it, I hope to continue on. Working at a pet store is a new learning experience for me, and from it, I will gain more experience that will help me later in life.
Riley – Official Greeter
Hi, my name is Riley. I’m an almost seven year old Golden Retriever and have pretty much grown up at the store. So, you could say I own the place. My job is technically the “Official Greeter” – but it’s not really a job to me, I love meeting new faces both two-legged and four-legged. You will often find me roaming around the store making sure everyone feels welcome, but sometimes I love just basking in the sunshine waiting for you to walk through the front door. If I’m really happy, you might hear my dinosaur voice – it’s the closest thing to talking for me, and it means I really really want to play, if you’re not too busy. I’m always in the mood for a hug, so come by and see me today!
