Our Team

Rachael Potts created On the Trail to incorporate a diverse background including: organic farm owner and manager, environmental educator/naturalist, behavior therapist, and professional dog hiker.  Rachael's skill set has led her to the outdoors with her favorite canine friends.  As business owner, Rachael feels lucky to have such a rewarding job, exploring Cape Ann and ensuring the safety and enjoyment of her beloved clients.  

Kim Nolan comes to On the Trail, as a former farmer.  She spent many years caring for various livestock: goats, sheep, horses, rabbits, pigs and more.  Kim's most recent venture was an organic poultry farm in Ipswich, MA.  Kim misses the daily interaction of caring for plants and animals of all shapes and sizes.  Whether you have a big farm, small homestead, or family pets, she would be a great match!

Ania Gruca is a young professional living in Beverly, MA.  She is currently managing a small gourmet grocer and cafe.  In her spare time Ania studies herbalism, gardening, and enjoys spending time in nature.  She has always loved nature and animals, having been surrounded by animals since childhood.  Ania has a loveable cat, Molly, and spends lots of time caring for the pets of coworkers and friends.  Ania has been a resource for many, staying in their homes to facilitate comfort and care in their home environment.  She has a trusting and flexible personality, which makes her a great fit for short transitions and new settings.  Ania is a great as a caretaker for On the Trail.     

Trish Stefanko comes to On the Trail with experience as an RN, MT, environmental educator, and farmer.  She has loved animals her whole life, and is happiest when with them.  Trish puts high value on being healthy and active.  She is a reasonable, reliable, responsible person.  Trish currently lives in New Hamphire, but we are always looking for an excuse to get her to Cape Ann.  Trish prefers shorter stays (week or less), as she has gardens to tend and people to care for.  Trish is a delightful addition to our team and an asset to our community.
