After years of begging my parents, I adopted my best friend, Rascal, when I was eight years old and he has been by my side ever since. Adopting him inspired me to start volunteering at Shelter From the Storm, the local rescue where we got him from, and taking on pet-sitting jobs around my neighborhood. Now, as a part-time college student and a full-time animal lover, I love being a pet-sitter because it brings me into contact with so many wonderful animals. With each and every dog having it's own unique personality, I could never get bored of this job.

Ever since I was young, I have been around dogs, either from owning them or dog-sitting for neighbors. I am comfortable with dogs of all sizes, and I love being around any dog. My experience at local humane societies has taught me a few tricks, and I would love to give your dog the attention and exercise that it needs! I am employed as a scientist, but I enjoy walking dogs in my free time. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

In another life, I was a dog. I was probably a Border Collie because I get most excited having work to do outdoors and a mission. I grew up with all different kinds of dogs, horses, snakes, rodents and found out really quickly I get along best with people who love animals (and humans, we're animals too!). I am a teacher and adventurer with a passion for satiating scientific curiosity. I am punctual, honest, fun, calm and loving and will take care of your dog(s) as if they were my own furry companions. I can't wait to meet you and your furry companion(s) and represent Wag! with pride.
