Meet the Guinea Pig Market Team

Our team is comprised of a great group of people that each do what we love to do! Our overriding mission is to provide great products for guinea pigs that bring joy and health to both the guinea pigs and their caretakers.

Jenny manages the Market store in Michigan. Jenny had previously run Jens Custom Crafts for five years where she successfully created a great variety of fleece and fabric products. She joined forces with Teresa Murphy in 2012 to help bring Teresa's Fleece Flipper product to market.


Jenny Sawyer - Store Manager, Seamstress Extraordinaire

When Jenny isn’t busy juggling production, inventory, purchasing and product development for Guinea Pig Market, she enjoys being crafty and spending time with her many rescued fur children. She is vegan, loves cats and is a passionate animal rights activist. Jenny is the proud mom to Abby, and her passion in life is to create equality for all living beings. She believes that we should treat others the way that we would want to be treated.


Jason - Production & Warehousing

Jason is Jenny's husband and our jack-of-all-trades. He cuts, sews and packages orders. He also handles warehousing, inventory and all of our heavy lifting. He is a compassionate vegan and animal rights activist who loves cats, and also a “dad” to many rescued kitties, dogs and one very spoiled pig. Jason loves hockey (Go Red Wings!) and anything outdoors. He is a hardworking man that loves his family.


Abby - Shipping and Office Assistant

Abby, a vegan cat fanatic and animal rights activist, is the daughter to proud parents Jenny and Jason. When she isn’t busy going to school and saving the world, she loves helping out wherever she can.


Melissa B - Seamstress Extraordinaire

Melissa is Jenny’s sister who also lives in Michigan. She helps us keep things moving by cutting uhaul and sewing many of our cage liners, flippers and potty pads. Melissa is vegetarian and in a happy relationship with her longtime boyfriend. She is the proud mom to several rescued cats and dogs, and loves to spend any extra time with her fur-babies.


Amy - Seamstress Extraordinaire

Amy, also in Michigan, helps us keep the pace by sewing many of our flippers and potty pads. She is vegan and enjoys raising her wonderful vegan daughter Leah. Amy loves animals and is a passionate animal rights activist. She also is the proud mom to two sweet doggies and hopes to adopt more in the near future.

Melissa is our amazing Customer Service leader. She also helps keeping things running smoothly on the site. She is a long time vegan with a lot of little furballs that she keeps healthy and happy. When she isn’t loitering at the vet, Melissa enjoys hiking, sewing for The Rat Stash, and snuggling with her cats and ratties.


Colin – Advertising & Marketing

Colin is the man behind our newsletters and snazzy advertising. If guinea pigs could talk, Colin would translate – and he would share their Wheekly musings for all the world to see. He resides in California and enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and daughter.
