Kevin & Joanna, Founders
Kevin & Joanna started Until We Meet Again in 2006. Their journey began after the tragic loss of 3 beloved pets. Joanna and Kevin were left with nowhere to turn as it was a weekend and no pet crematoriums open. It was through the difficult grieving process that followed, Joanna believes they found the inspiration to help others. Since that time, Joanna & Kevin have created something truly unique. Until We Meet Again is a full service pet memorial center which is dedicated to the respectful care of all pets and committed to providing grief support and education for pet parents and pet health care providers. Kevin and Joanna live in North Vancouver BC with their 3 sons, 2 dogs and 2 cats. When not working at UWMA, Kevin is a career fire fighter and Joanna enjoys spending time with their family.
