Our Team

General Inquiries


April C.

April is originally from Pittsburgh, PA, and has loved animals her whole life. April believes that as the owner of Rocky’s Retreat, the best way that she can serve our clients- both furry and human, is to be hands on. April is our Senior Hydrotherapist and loves swimming with the dogs- whether it’s teaching them how to swim, working on recovery or general fitness, or just a good old-fashioned game of fetch.



Eva C.

Joining us all the way from Venezuela, Eva is one of our Certified Canine Hydrotherapists.  She saw firsthand the benefits of hydrotherapy with her beloved dog-daughter, Luna, and has dedicated her own life to dogs’ health and well-being.  She loves seeing dogs improve in the water and considers it a great personal blessing. Hablamos Espanol: Si tu perro necesita aquaterapia, pero te preocupa porque Ingles no es tu primer idioma, Eva habla Espanol y puede ayudarte.


Sophie H.
Sophie was born and raised in Florida and has lived in College Park for over 15 years. She graduated from Edgewater High school in 2019 and shortly after that, she joined the team at Rockys! She has always had a strong love for dogs, so it makes Sophie really happy to spend time with all the kiddos here at Rocky’s. Sophie is always willing to jump in and help in any task and is looking forward to begin training in hydrotherapy. She’s glad to be part of the team, and we’re glad to have her!

Sophia F.

Before securing a position permanently on the staff, Sophia began her journey at Rocky’s as a customer and volunteer. She loves interacting with the dogs and seeing them learn & grow- whether it’s swimming, making new friends or seeing them get more comfortable around people. Sophia believes that being a member of the Rocky’s Retreat staff is truly rewarding and she’s happy to be surrounded by such loving animals.

Billy and our owner, April, have been friends for nearly 30 years. They met when they worked together at a Cracker Barrel just outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

Billy relocated to Florida in September 2022 and dove right in to his new role. He loves being surrounded by the dogs, and is here to do everything possible to make their stay enjoyable.
