Meet our WBU Tallahasse Team...

Lori, Senior Sales Associate

Lori is happy to be in Tallahassee, and we are very fortunate to have her here working with us. Before moving to Tallahassee, she worked at the Wild Birds Unlimited store in Winter Springs, Florida.

Lori has three adult children, a gorgeous granddaughter and an absolutely adorable grandson! Her son works for the University of Florida, her younger daughter is a graduate from Florida State and her elder daughter is employed by Leon County Schools. Last but not least, she has two fur-babies... Coda the Golden Retriever and Callie who is quite possibly a Labradoodle.

CJ, Assistant Manager of Store Operations

Jennie moved to Tallahassee in 2015 from Vero Beach, where she taught 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Prior to that she was a park ranger at Acadia National Park in Maine, as well as in Black Canyon of Gunnison in Colorado.  Jennie fell in love with birds through working with the park service.  This is not her first time working with a Wild Birds Unlimited... she got her start at Wild Birds Unlimited of Fort Collins, Colorado.

Jennie met her husband, Luke, on the first day of teacher orientation.  Jennie was teaching Science and he was teaching English.  They have four fun kitty fur babies:  Alex, Annie, Rainy and Stormy.

Alexis, Sales Associate

Alexis came to Tallahassee in 2019 from Daytona Beach to develop and discover more for her life. She has had the opportunity to travel outside of the country multiple times; from London to Puerto Rico. Alexis believes traveling has opened her eyes to new cultures and people. Along with the help from her parents, she believes traveling has humbled her into the person she is today. As she gets older she has found herself in positions where working with nature and animals has brought her such great pleasure. Not surprising since she has always been the one to climb a tree to the highest point or to nurture an animal back to good health.

She does have a child of her own named Gracie. Gracie may not make much sense when she talks and she may not know right from wrong, but she is the greatest cat anyone could ever ask for.

Frank

Frank is a fawn & white Boston Terrier and he loves coming into work with his Momma. He is currently working on his Certified Bird Feeding Specialist Certificate, but just can't seem get past the Squirrel Deterrent chapter. His favorite past time is chasing his ball around the store... and the house... and the dog park. Frank loves to give kisses to anyone not sporting a hat or a beard (we don't know why this freaks him out). As we have warned everyone previously, if he runs up to you, watch your feet because sometimes he gets so happy when he sees people the happiness just leaks out!

 

   

Peter, Angela McDonnell, Owners

They have come to Tallahassee from St. Louis, Missouri where they also own Wild Birds Unlimited of Florissant.  Their Florissant store is located minutes away from the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers where every winter the Riverlands are inundated with Bald Eagles, Snow Geese and Trumpeter Swans as they journey the Mississippi flyway.  Peter comes from the Insurance business, specifically ReInsurance.  Angela's earlier careers were in the Arts and also Design and then more recently at Thies Farm and Greenhouses where she spent seven years playing in the dirt.  When Peter retired early they decided to do something that brought them much JOY... a business in Backyard Bird Feeding!  So, Angela and Peter bought Wild Birds Unlimited of Florissant in August 2016 and are excited to have acquired Wild Birds Unlimited of Tallahassee, which is a beautiful store in a progressive community with phenomenal birding.  They are fortunate to have a deck that is great for bird feeding as well as a pond beyond that attracts a variety of herons, egrets, turtles and very vocal frogs.  When not a the store, they enjoy exploring Tallahassee and taking Frank out to Alligator Point to chase Vultures.
