Meet our WBU Tallahasse Team...                                                                                      

 

     Michael, Assistant Manager of Sales 

Michael is semi-retired and formerly worked in the technology sector. He and his wife, Beth, are long time customers of our Tallahassee store. They are avid day hikers and prefer a challenging trail anywhere in the mountains. They added a screen room to the back of their home to enhance their birding experience, providing a superb view of the 6 to 8 bird feeders on their pole system. At WBU, Michael is quick to share some of his favorite birding photos, and has been working with us since August 2014.

     

 

 

          

     

   Nick, Assistant Manager of Store Operations

Nick is originally from the D.C. area. He moved to Tallahassee over two years ago and began work at Wild Birds Unlimited in October of 2015.  In addition to a passion for the birds (the Baltimore Oriole his favorite), Nick enjoys all forms of Ancient History and playing/watching as much soccer as possible. At the store you will find Nick either on the sales floor or in the back room where he manages the inventory, seed and special orders.

  

Lori, 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 for the last year and a half.

Lori has three adult children and a grandchild who just arrived! Her son works for the University of Florida, her younger daughter is graduating 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.

Lizzy, Sales Associate

Lizzy was born in Tallahassee, but was raised and grew up in Jacksonville. Now, she's back to Tally to attend Florida State University. She is working towards her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology.

Early in her life, Lizzy developed an interest in birds from her mother who shared her vast knowledge of birds, plants, and insects. Lizzy's favorite hobby is going on hikes with her trusty camera. She photographs birds and other interesting facets of the natural world. 

JoEllyn, Sales Associate

JoEllyn is a long time Tallahassee resident. She is an artist and just recently had her work displayed at the LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts; the Septembe 2018 Exhibit was "Power of Three".

JoEllyn is a mother of three, and a lover of nature and her community. We welcome JoEllyn as a Sales Associate.

 

Peter, Angela and Frank McDonnell, Owners

They have come 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 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 now very excited to have acquired Wild Birds Unlimited of Tallahassee, which is a beautiful store in a progressive community with phenomenal birding.  Frank, is a two year old Boston Terrier.  He's a Momma's boy so if his Momma is in the shop, it's likely that he is too!  Frank is quite captivated by the birds on our deck but he has absolutely no patience for the squirrel... he must go!  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!
