Our Team

Jessica Jackson

General Manager – Austin

Jess was born and raised in the Texas Hills Country, and after she earned her BFA at TCU she fell into the world of pet care: a happy accident. Her 10+ years’ experience in customer service pulled her back into hospitality, but in 2018, this amazing project called Barkin’ Creek came along, and she just could not say no. Jess has a passion for giving pups and their parents the best possible experience by providing them with the knowledge and tools they need for a healthy happy life. She finds joy in promoting an environment where her employees and customers (humans and pooches alike!) can feel at home. When she is not at Barkin’ Creek, Jess can be found spending time with her husband and her Shih Tzu, Bonnie, taking advantage of all the music, food, and outdoors Austin has to offer!

Rayne Hutchings

Kitchen Manager – Austin

Rayne is a senior family member of Barkin Creek, having been with us since 2018. She started in our daycare, but she was always ready and willing to help in any department. With a background in cooking, Rayne quickly found a home in the kitchen, and she grew into the role of Kitchen Manager through her hard work and passion for making delicious and nutritious meals and treats for your pups. When Rayne isn't working at Barkin Creek, she goes to school studying Veterinary Medicine and hangs out with her Jack Russell Terrier, Nikko.
