About Me

I began pet sitting in the fall of 2010. I had been working in the government private sector for 10 years. Through advantageous circumstances I changed careers. I surrendered to my natural tendency for organization and love of caring for animals and became an entrepreneur.

Like many people, I love animals. However, pet sitting takes more than love. It takes skill and experience, combined with intelligence and responsibility.

While building my business, I also worked at a local veterinary hospital for 4 years. I was given numerous learning opportunities and exposure to medical knowledge. This is what sets me apart from most pet sitters. I have the background in which to recognize illness, injuries and make recommendations to help improve the health of clients’ pets.
