“It’s not where you walk, it’s who you walk with!”

I’m a mother of 3 kids, 2 dogs (A pug and a golden puppy) and a foster mom to the sweetest sheepdog. I recently moved to Cincinnati from Indianapolis, where I began working for Wag. Wag has been such a fun experience for me. I have loved and bonded with every dog that I have walked. Before working for Wag, I worked as a kennel attendant and front desk receptionist at an animal hospital, where I walked, fed and distributed medications to all the boarding animals. My heart is with all dogs.
