About Us

Through the years, we have been blessed with many wonderful volunteers and staff. Please take a moment to get to know those who work behind the scenes.


Jeanne O'Brien


Jeanne and her husband moved to Lander in 1998.  She initially became familiar with the Pet Connection through knowing Syd Miller. Jeanne serves on the Animal Adoption and Evaluation Committee, spends time working with the animals and maintains our database. She is proud to be a board member and appreciates the hard work put in by the dedicated staff and volunteers at LPC.


Jeanne works at NOLS as the PR and Partnership Manager.  She also is a volunteer with Lander Search and Rescue and has two rescue dogs.
