Passionate About Helping You Succeed
Jean Brillman is a lifelong animal lover and pet owner. Throughout her life, she has owned and cared for dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, rabbits and various other “furry babies”! Although Jean loves all animals, her intense love of horses led her to start riding at the age of 10. Throughout her riding career, she competed in many horse shows on the east coast, including The Devon Horse Show, Lake Placid and The Winter Equestrian Festival in West Palm Beach, Florida. Jean is currently the assistant trainer at Desfor Farms and is also pursuing her USEF judge's license.
Jean's love for animals also led her to complete an internship volunteering for The Aark, a wildlife rehabilitation facility located in Bucks County, PA. At The Aark, Jean took care of and released opossums, squirrels, owls, and many other injured wildlife.
Jean received her B.S. in Communications from Ithaca College, as well as her Master’s in Education from Temple University. In 2005, she became a member of the Philadelphia Teaching Fellows and taught various grades, including special education students in the Philadelphia School District. In addition to teaching elementary and high school students, Jean taught as an adjunct professor in the equine studies department at Delaware Valley University and was the assistant coach of their Intercollegiate Hunt Seat Riding Team.

Since then, Angel Pet Sitting has grown to employ over 15 staff members and service over 600 clients.
