About Me

Hi, I’m Carissa Faxlandez.

I live in Richmond, VA with my husband, Anthony, and our millions of pets. Just kidding… we “only” have 4 rescue dogs, 1 rescue cat, 1 evil chameleon, and normally a foster cat (or kittens!).

I work for Automattic as a Happiness Engineer. More specifically I support WordPress.com users via live chat (I LOVE TO CHAT) and by email.

When I’m not working, I’m volunteer my time to animal rescue groups. I created and manage tmhpr.com for Take Me Home Pet Rescue in Richardson, TX where I used to live. Since moving to the Richmond area I’ve started to foster cats and volunteer for Richmond Animal League which is just down the street!

I also LOVE to watch TV with Anthony. You can see what I’m watching in my Trakt profile if you’re interested. In short, some of my favorites are: Doctor Who, Castle, Chicago Fire/Med/P.D./Justice, Jane the Virgin, Chuck, The Royals, and the list goes on…

My other hobbies/obsessions in no particular order are: board games, reading “chick lit”, Taylor Swift, new tech, scrapbooking, cleaning/organizing, and traveling (primarily to beaches).
