To say I love dogs would be an understatement. -Happy dogs feed my soul! My whole life has revolved around animals, and how I could better their lives. I absolutely adore dogs, and have always been fortunate to have been surrounded by them throughout my entire life, not only on a personal level, but on a professional level as well. Over the years I've spent time volunteering at local animal shelters, pet sitting for friends and family, working at a dog bakery, participating in animal care fundraisers, and eventually developing a career in Animal Welfare, where I have over 5 years experience working as a Veterinary Assistant/Technician, inclusive of employment at a Veterinary Hospital that specialized in low stress tactics for the animals. In the field, I have always treated every dog with the love, care and patience that I would want another to give to my own fur-baby, and in using the Wag! app I will hold the same standard, along with the goal of a fun and happy experience and walk for each dog, every walk!

My schedule is flexible, making it optimal for walking dogs. Wag is affording me the opportunity to blend two of my favorite things, dogs and walking.
