At Wag!, we’re spotlighting top Pet Caregivers around the nation who provide pet care on the Wag! Platform. This is a chance for you to meet & get to know the Pet Caregivers on the Wag! app!
Are you native to the area? If not, where are you from?
Stephanie: I'm native to New England but I'm originally from Connecticut! I moved to Boston about 3 years ago and I love it.
What do you do in your free time?
Stephanie: Besides walking dogs, I enjoy reading, traveling, skiing, kayaking…just being outside!
Do you have any dogs of your own or have you had in the past?
I currently can’t have a dog in my place, but I will hopefully adopt a pup as soon as I can! My boyfriend can attest that I dangerously look up adoptable dogs and daydream about getting them all 😊 Growing up I had the best dog named Cozmo. We just lost him last summer, but he was 16 years old and still had puppy energy. He was a dachshund mix, with one ear always sticking up and one ear down. He was the best. He also loved kayaking!
How did you hear about us?
I had a couple of friends that walked through Wag! and had great experiences, which encouraged me to sign up.
What is your favorite neighborhood to walk in?
I feel like I’m still learning about new places around Boston every time I accept a walk, which has been incredible! I frequently walk through Somerville which might be one of my favorites. There are so many other dogs to meet and unique neighborhoods throughout the town. In the winter there are a lot of pretty holiday lights, and I have a running list of restaurants I’d like to visit that I pass by during my walks!
What's your story?
I think my story is still in its draft stages! I have always loved nature, especially all of its critters. When I was younger I wished I could be Eliza Thornberry and speak with animals. A lot of that love came from my Dad who always loved being outside, whether it was camping, hiking or being on the water. My passion for nature drove me to study environmental science and I now have a career working in sustainability. While the Boston chapter of life is still pretty new, I’ve fallen in love with the area and plan to stay. My dream is to one day have a home with chickens, a horse and of course a dog or two. Maybe some bees if I’m feeling adventurous!
What inspired you to sign up to work for Wag!?
Until next time, folks! 🐾
