I am a responsible, trustworthy person with a wealth of experience with dogs. Along with caring for my own, I've walked, pet sat, boarded and fostered dogs for family members, friends and associates throughout my life. My early experiences working at a pet shop and as a veterinarian's assistant provided a foundation of dog care knowledge that I've continued to build on ever since. After a lengthy career in the Information Technology sector I opted to retire early and pursue rewarding part-time work. As a Fairfield resident for over 20 years, I'm committed to providing local Wag clients with the best dog walking service possible.

Like all of my colleagues here at Wag, I love dogs and they love me back. My general disposition is calm and aware. My family members call me “the dog whisperer” because of my natural affinity to all pets. I have a special connection to shy and reserved dogs. A breeder friend of mine took in a rescue German Shepherd and I was the only person the dog allowed into her personal space. In addition, I am an avid hiker which provides the endurance to ensure good healthy walks for both your dog and me.
