About the Author Gayle Martz is a former airline hostess, fashion photographer, and handbag designer. Her unique vision for pet travel led her to create the SHERPA Bag, the first officially approved soft-sided pet carrier. She revolutionized pet travel by successfully, persuading airlines to allow dogs and cats in the passenger cabin. Gayle was the founder and CEO/President of the Sherpa Pet Trading Company from 1989 to 2016. From 2000 to 2005, she was president/CEO of Crouch & Fitzgerald. She is currently president of GMInc. ( Gayle believes there should be “No Pet Left Behind,“ which is also the title of her first book, No Pet Left Behind: The SHERPA Guide for Traveling with Your Best Friend, published by Thomas Nelson in 2008. Her new book, It’s in the Bag: A Revolution in Pet Travel, published by New Voices Press on Feb. 14, 2021, is a candid recounting of her journey, including sage advice to budding entrepreneurs on how to recognize and hopefully avoid many of the pitfalls she encountered. It’s advice she is well-qualified to offer, given that Gayle started her business with nothing—literally no home, no job, no money—and went on to build a global brand that provided people everywhere the means to take their pets with them wherever they go—safe, comfortable and stylish in their iconic SHERPA Bag. A graduate of Long Beach City College, Gayle currently resides in San Clemente, California. She continues to advocate for all aspects of pet travel, animal welfare, and honoring the precious human-animal bond.
