I love dogs! I have experience with all sizes from XS Pomeranians to XL St. Bernard’s and Newfies, and everything in between. I'm a very active surfer, yogi, and hiker all over New England and love being out in the elements, including rain and snow. I spend a lot of time at the beach in any weather! I also work at South Boston Animal Hospital-you may have seen me behind the front desk. I would love to take your pup with me on a safe and fun adventure around the neighborhood!

“The road to my heart is paved with paw prints...”

I am a freelance filmmaker by day and an animal lover 24 hours a day! I have considered veterinary studies in the past but being overseas at the time made it impractical, as such studies weren't available in the region. I love the outdoors and exercising too. So it would be great to do so with the best of companions!

Established in the 1600s, Cambridge has a storied history that is centered around academia today. The city is home to numerous compassionate and dedicated animal shelters, all of which aim to get homeless pets off the streets and into loving homes: 

A highly regarded animal shelter located in the greater Boston area, Animal Rescue League of Boston has helped thousands of animals in need find their safe and loving forever homes. In addition to rescuing homeless or abused animals, the Rescue also provides veterinary services, animal surrender services, and a wide range of educational opportunities aimed at helping pet owners and their furry companions. 

Located in the greater Boston area, MSPCA Angell is an adoption center and veterinary care clinic dedicated to helping animals in need. Their constant stream of adoptable animals are well-cared for and provided any necessary medical attention at the facility prior to finding their forever home. In addition to adoption and veterinary services, MSPCA also offers animal training and behavior classes, surrender services, spay and neuter programs, and humane education classes.
