Hope Nartonis


Hope grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with two sisters, two dogs and three cats. She moved west to study journalism and yoga at University of Colorado, Boulder where she met her Jackson-Hole-obsessed partner, Alex. After a few years in southern California, she moved to Jackson in 2016 to play in the parks and to work in retail management. Fast forward a few careers and lots of personal growth, one thing remains the same, Hope loves to spend time with animals. Her favorite part about animal rescue is matchmaking cats with humans and watching their healing relationships unfold. Cats bring humans down to earth to pause, trust and enjoy some quality time together. When she’s not in Kitty City, Hope enjoys hiking in Wilson with her dogs Harry and Tom and reading romance novels on the couch with her cat Chara.
