how it all started

As a child, I LOVED school fundraisers (weird, I know) and I always tried my best. My mom always called me an entrepreneur. I begged my dad for us to get a puppy through elementary.  In 2008, we found out that my mom had cancer. To help us during this difficult time my dad purchased his first dam, Vicki.  Vicki came at a perfect time.  She was an excellent distraction and comfort for all of us while mom was recovering. I also grew up taking art lessons and have fallen madly in love with the beauty of photography. My grandmother was an artist. My mom also called me her "flower child", I loved being outside and liked to go the natural route with products and food.

Now Parfait Mischen Goldendoodles is what my desires, personality, and goals have merged into. I'm passionate about providing other families with that same comfort Vicki was for my family growing up. I'm thrilled that I get to work from home while running my own business. I express myself in the images that I take, and enjoy selecting safe products for our pets. I'm very blessed to be able to run this company with my husband James. He has been cheering me on from the beginning. Keep scrolling to get to know me and my family, and our rolls in this wonderful business.

i never thought that I would be a dog breeder while growing up.  But as life's road has unraveled in front of me, it has become clear that this is the path that i was meant to take.  i'm thankful for the opportunities that i have been given and also excited on where it will take me.

a few of megan's favorite things

Every few months I wake up with the burning desire to see something different and new. My favorite cities to see are rich in history and have their own unique architecture. Charleston is my personal favorite. (For the Jeepers out there, mine is named Jacqueline, Jacky for short.)

historical cities & architecture

When I'm not taking care of our dogs, I'm chasing beautiful light with my camera. I love art and photography brings me so much joy. I get very excited when I get to wander a historic city shooting away, or go take portraits of a girl in a gown. 


vintage & classics

I prefer sticking to the classics with my wardrobe, perfume, and style. I enjoy collecting TIME magazines and vintage records. The Golden Age of Hollywood has my favorite films like Grace Kelly's Rear Window.

the Outdoors

I love North Carolina. In 2 hours I can be hiking in the Blue Ridge, or in 4 hours I can be taking on the waves. There is something about the fresh air and exercise that is just rejuvenating.

Reading & tea

A match made in heaven! I love loose leaf tea; and coconut oolong is my absolute favorite!! Novels are my first go to when reading! Mary Stewart’s Ivy Tree and Moon Spinners, and Alexander Dumas’s Count of Monte Cristo are my top choices in stand alone novels.

high-school sweethearts & outdoor enthusiasts

James and I spent a lot of time together growing up, we actually can't remember the first time we met. We played sports in high school and cheered each other on. James sense of humor kept me very entertained. We went to prom together for his Senior year and then mine. We were best friends then and still are now. 

In 2014, we were married on a beautiful southern plantation. Before we celebrated our first anniversary our beautiful Alayna Grace was born and stole our hearts. My parents thought we were crazy when we brought our sweet baby home from the hospital and a puppy home a few weeks later. Indy & Alayna grew up together. Indy was our first dam for breeding. We have recently started bringing Alayna on hikes with us and always have a dog in tow. It's where we can combine our love of family, dogs, and the great outdoors. Now that you know a little more about our story, we look forward to hearing yours!

meet the team




Megan is the owner of Parfait Mischen and does all the behind the scenes work. From media & photography, to deep cleaning and assisting during delivery, Megan stays very busy making sure everything is as it should be. She enjoys discovering new hikes along the Blue Ridge, Burt's Bees Chapsticks, and watching BBC specials.

Alayna is our sweet 7 year old. She helps us socialize our puppies. When we are cleaning the puppy runs, she is sitting in the stalls talking to all the puppies and giving them the attention they LOVE! She is obsessed with the pups and is always asking to help. Alayna's favorite actress is Hayley Mills in Polyanna and Parent Trap. She spends countless hours writing books, playing with her Calico Critters, and American girl doll.

We are constantly evolving at PM and that is thanks to James. If anything is broken, James is our faithful handyman. Our barn layout was designed by him. He always has another project that he is about to tackle around here. James is on a S.W.A.T. team and enjoys learning something new. He is currently teaching himself Spanish.

kind words about our team

"We are incredibly grateful for Parfait Mischen. Their amazing work and outstanding dedication to breeding and raising healthy, beautiful puppies is what brought Kirbee (now a year and 3 months) to our family. Even before bringing Kirbee (previously named Dusty Rose) home, we eagerly and happily saw updates about the litter. Megan was wonderfully communicative and was so helpful throughout the entire process. We’ve got a very loved, healthy, confident, happy, well-behaved mini goldendoodle who loves to play fetch, explore, and cuddle."

"Working with PM Goldendoodles has been a more enjoyable experience than I ever could have hoped for. It is clear that Megan absolutely loves her fur babies & wants others to be able to have healthy, happy babies of their own to love. Her communication & care throughout the entire process is amazing. I felt like I’d known her forever, & that she truly wanted me to have the best puppy for my family. I highly recommend PM to all of the many people that admire my beautiful fur baby!"

"This puppy was born to love kids. Nothing speaks more to a Momma's heart than a dog you know loves your kids as much as they love him. Wonderful people breed wonderful dogs."
