Meet the staff

Meet Lisa Overocker


Hi!  My name is Lisa Overocker.  I am the owner of Gentle Hands K-9 Boutique and the soon to be Riverside Pet Shop in Wichita Kansas.  Animals have been my life since I could walk.  I have over 30 years experience with domestic, farm, exotic and wildlife animals.  I am not only a business owner, I am also a pet sitter, dog walker, microchipper, and pet nail expert.  I use gentle techniques to help animals that have been through stressful situations and do not like to have their nails done.  I have hundreds of references and treat your animals as if they are my own.  I have  a lot of experience but I also know that every animal is an individual and you know your babies better than anyone so I follow your lead on your babies' care. I can't wait to meet you and your babies!!

Meet Vera Maygar


Vera is a seasoned groomer that has been grooming for well over 20 years.  She has a cat of her own, along with an English Bull Mastiff, a dapple Dachshund, and a Jack Russell.  We can't forget about her foster babies, as she is a foster mommy for K-9 Karma.  Her favorite thing about grooming is making the fur babies feel better and making them feel special along with the return puppy love she receives.  Her least favorite thing about grooming is the no call no shows as special time is set aside for each fur baby.  Vera loves all dogs but really loves the big dogs and is not afraid of any breed. Call and make your appointment with Vera today!

Meet Meghan Karr


Meghan started grooming in October 2007.  She has 4 dogs of her own including 2 Bullies and 2 Dachshunds.  Her favorite breed is pit bull / bullies.  Her favorite thing about grooming is the love and appreciation the dogs show after they are done and feel great after their spa treatment.  Her least favorite thing about grooming is not being able to finish grooming a dog because of the stress level of the dog, which we do our best to avoid. We are so happy to have Meghan as part of our team and can not wait for you to meet her!  Call to schedule your appointment with Meghan today!

Meet Denise Lowry


Denise has three dogs of her own, including two Anatolian Shepherds, and a yellow lab.  She is a good friend of Lisa's and is around here and there to lend a hand where needed.  Denise's passion for animals is no secret and her knowledge about them is impressive!  Denise helps in the boutique, but is also helping with small projects in the thrift store.  If she is here when you come in, be sure to say hello!

Meet Angel Overocker


Angel is a spunky 20 year old that has been around animals her entire life.  As you can tell by her last name, yes this is Lisa's daughter!  She has experience with farm, domestic, wildlife and exotic animals; including bottle feeding babies.  She loves to be out in the country and will pet sit farms any day!    If you see her, make sure you say hello! 

Meet Mark


Hi!  My name is Mark Overocker.  I am the husband of Lisa Overocker (the owner).  I am Lisa's biggest fan and supporter.  I am also the maintenance man for the shop.  I love to help my wife as much as I can when I'm not working at my job as a welding inspector.  I love to see the success of all Lisa's hard work and passion.  She's the best at what she does!  Love you baby!
