"I have been an animal lover my whole life. I grew up in a house full of
cats and as a kid my friends and I volunteered every weekend at my local
Humane Society. As soon as I got my drivers license I began pet sitting for
teachers, family friends, and colleagues, finding lots of joy in making their
furry friends happy and getting to be a little part of their lives. When I'm
not petting puppies or cuddling kitties, I'm an actor! I particularly love
classical theatre and Shakespeare. I look forward to receiving lots of from -
and giving lots of love to - all of the sweet pets I get to work with!".

Volunteering at the shelter and fostering dogs is very rewarding. I love
when I can reunite an owner with their lost dog or cat, foster a dog until
they find their forever home, or help a sick or abused dog become well
