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!
