Camryn Rabideau

As a lifelong animal lover, Camryn Rabideau jumps at any opportunity to combine her love for writing and her pets. To date, she's tested out dozens of pet products firsthand, and it has quickly become her favorite niche.


  • She has written for publications like The Spruce, Reviewed, and Forbes.
  • Camryn grew up on a farm with bunnies, llamas, and more.
  • She graduated with a degree from the University of Rhode Island.


Camryn Rabideau is a full-time freelance writer and product reviewer living in Rhode Island. Over the course of her 7+ year writing career, which began at a content marketing agency, she's covered a wide range of lifestyle topics, including fashion, home decor, gardening, and of course, pets.

She counts herself lucky to have been able to test all sorts of pet products—from automatic litter boxes to dog beds—for publications such as The Spruce, Reviewed, and Forbes. Growing up on a farm with dogs, cats, bunnies, and even four llamas, her passion for animals started at a young age, and today, she has her own ever-expanding farmstead with her faithful Golden Retriever, three cats, and a dozen rambunctious chickens.


Camryn graduated summa cum laude from the University of Rhode Island, and out of her graduating class, she was chosen to receive the University Academic Excellence Award. Her Bachelor's degree is in Textiles, Fashion Merchandising, and Design, with a minor in Journalism.
