Hi, I’m located in Logan Square and parent to a nine year old rescued pit bull, and in the past have been foster parent to rescued dogs while they were awaiting placement in their forever homes.

I've always been around animals and dogs since I could walk, and when I was old enough to work I knew there would be no better fit than working with animals! I have volunteered at a shelter and worked professionally with animals in a retail environment. Due to a heavy school schedule I had to leave that job but now that Wag! exists I can still work with pups!

As far back as I can remember my life has been filled with the joy of animals. As a child I grew up alongside a number of dogs with which I had an intimate role in training, feeding, and caretaking. In my teenage years I became a part time sitter and gained valuable experience in working with dogs of all types. Animals have always been an intrinsic part of my life and I hope to maintain this involvement well in to my future.

I grew up with a beautiful Golden Retriever/Australian Shepherd named Annie, and also took care of my next door neighbor's Italian Greyhounds almost every day from middle school to high school. I moved into Chicago after high school and became a freelance film director/editor. After a few months in the city I got a job with a local dogwalking company for about 8 months - definitely my favorite non-film job I've ever had. I moved to LA and NYC for a while, but I'm now living in Pilsen and am looking forward to biking around and hanging with pups again!
