Evanthia Martin has been with Hollywood Feed for nearly 4 years. The majority of that time she managed the purchasing of treats and chews while monitoring the food safety of all manufacturing partners in that category, including managing the food safety for the Hollywood Feed Fresh Bakery. To properly do this, she trained to be a PCQI (Preventative Controls Qualified Individual) and became certified in Allergen Management, Environmental Monitoring, Internal Auditing, Supplier Auditing, and Pet Food Formulation. Evanthia created deep relationships with all treat and chew vendors by asking questions about their processes, ingredients, and more while also diligently researching to ensure all practices created the safest experience for all pets enjoying any snack from Hollywood Feed. In her free time, Evanthia enjoys snuggling with her 13-year-old Puggle “Groupie,” renovating her home with her husband, cooking Greek food with her two young children and training for marathons.
