Meet Our Team

Serena Faber Nelson Founder & Editor

Serena Faber Nelson is a writer, television producer and fluffy dog owner.

Told by university professors that reports on local dog shows were not acceptable forms of journalism, Serena sought out a career in lifestyle television. Over the past decade her work has been featured on award winning Australian shows such as RPA, Selling Houses Australia, Harry’s Practice and What’s Good for You.

In 2010 Serena created Pretty Fluffy as a place where dedicated dog owners could find stylish products, modern advice, and inspiration for living well with their pets.

Since Pretty Fluffy’s launch, Serena has been a regular contributor to publications such as Modern Dog Magazine, Cesars Way, Dogs Life and more; and in 2012 released her first eBook, co-authored with Sarah Dickerson, 52 Weeks of Treats – Simple and Healthy Dog Treat Recipes for Every Season. She is currently working on her first novel.

A passionate advocate for animal welfare and responsible pet ownership, Serena has been featured on MamaMia and Hope 103.2 Radio discussing prominent welfare issues animals face today. In 2012 she created the worldwide movement The 13 Project.

Serena currently lives in Sydney, Australia with her husband, Andy, and very own pretty fluffy, Soda.

Sarah Dickerson Features Writer

Sarah is a designer, photographer, health & animal advocate, wife, and devoted mom (i.e. humble servant) to her loving Shih Tzu, Coco Bean.

After graduating from design school and getting a corporate design job, Sarah wanted a creative outlet that would combine all her passions in life. She decided to start a website and blog, Chic Sprinkles, to document her projects, fluffy dog models, and DIYs. It has been the perfect blend of design, photography and animals, which makes her heart beyond happy.

A little ways down the road, the stars aligned and Sarah met Serena (well, online that is) and an amazing friendship and creative team was born. Sarah joined the Pretty Fluffy team in 2012 as a Features Writer, and has had the time of her life helping create stylish resources for animal lovers everywhere.

Designing the eBook, 52 Weeks of Treats – Simple and Healthy Dog Treat Recipes for Every Season, written by Serena, is among some of Sarah’s favorite Pretty Fluffy projects so far. Her creative work has been published in Modern Dog Magazine and Cesar’s Way. She has also been featured on The Everygirl, Design Sponge Newsletter, Dog Milk and more.

Sarah lives on the Florida coast with her husband, Tanner, and little nugget, Coco Bean.

Soda Chief Treat Tester

Soda, also known as Sodie, Sodes, Possum and Muffin; is our resident reviewer of all things dog. She’s never met a toy or treat she didn’t like.

Now in her senior years, she still acts like a puppy – we like to think of her as the dog version of Peter Pan who never wants to grow up! Her favourite pastimes include sleeping, eating and going for walks – but not necessarily in that order.

Soda was the inspiration behind the launch of Pretty Fluffy and she continues to inspire us daily.

Coco Bean Lead Toy Analyst

Coco Bean, lovingly nicknamed Bean, Munchkin, Little Foot, and Nugget; is quite the character. Picture a whole lot of love and spunk packed into one fun size ball of fluff.

She might be the queen of chillaxing and afternoon naps, but really Coco’s all about the fun. Seriously, give her a squeaky toy and watch her in action – totally obsessed.

Other than toys and naps, her daily favorites include car rides with the windows down, spying on the neighbors, snuggling with her humans, and snacking on sweet bell peppers.

Coco’s silly personality has made her quite the muse for her mum’s photography. Her favorite part? She gets paid in treats.
