Kelley Epperson, General Manager

Kelley is a dedicated individual with over 20 years of experience in the restaurant and retail industry.  Despite her busy career, her heart belongs to dogs, stemming from her deep love for her furry companion, Jackson.  A former college athlete, Kelley’s competitive spirit was honed as a swimmer, instilling in her a strong work ethic and determination.  Alongside her husband, Stephen, she finds joy in cheering on their favorite teams in football, baseball, and basketball, embracing their shared passion for sports and quality time with their beloved pup.

Cortney Meacham, Sales Manager

Cortney is a Birmingham native and attended UNA for a Merchandising and Marketing degree. After ten plus years of retail management, she decided it was time for a change. While she has always loved dogs, this job has sparked a new love, and she’s been enjoying getting to know our pups at Homewood for over a year now. In her free time, she enjoys going to Disney World and traveling to Esports events with her friends from all over the US.

Mackenzie Van Oosterhout, Area Manager

Mackenzie, a dog-loving Michigander, now calls Birmingham, Alabama home after years of wandering in her 20’s. Her loyal companion, Thor, a German Shepherd, is the heart of her adventures. She left a decade-long career in restaurant management for a new life at Dogtopia, where she’s living her dream surrounded by paws, wagging tails, and endless doggy kisses. She and Thor explore the world, embracing the beauty of nature, and making every moment an adventure.
