Company description…

Vital Pet Life helps pet parents unlock their pets’ vibrancy, happiness and longevity with all natural supplements and products.

I started my company because…

When I first got my dog, Tuxedo (Tux), he had very rough, dry and coarse hair. After doing some research, I learned that adding salmon oil to his diet would help soften his hair and relieve his itching, joint pain and inflammation. Tux ended up being the inspiration for the company. Shortly after this discovery, my husband and I started Vital Pet Life in our living room with no real plan—just the dream of helping other fur parents and fur babies. Now, just two years later, we are preparing to launch our third product!

The impact I want my company to have on the world…

I have a vision of creating a Vital Pet Life community to help families and their pets thrive, providing curated health and wellness products with carefully chosen natural ingredients. I want this community to be our driving force.

Top 3 goals for my business are…

  1. Put the welfare of pets first in the creation of our product line.
  2. Foster and grow our community of customers, vendors, and wholesalers.
  3. Give back both to my local community in Los Angeles, as well as the Philippines. Growing up in the Philippines I saw a lot of stray, homeless animals on the street. I believe that all animals deserve loving, compassionate and caring homes.

Women entrepreneurs are…

Strong, pioneering, tenacious, gritty, and vulnerable.

I #EmbraceAmbition because…

It’s everything I have. No one can take it away from me.
