I consider myself a pet professional! I’ve always had pets in the house since I was young - dogs, cats, fish, birds, even chinchillas! I have also always been the go-to dog walker and pet sitter in the neighborhood, and often care for my family’s fur relatives as well. Naturally, I was destined to build a career working with animals! I worked at a popular doggy daycare in Minneapolis for nearly four years before moving on to my current position as a veterinary assistant in Excelsior. I’ve been doing Wag walks and Wag sitting/boarding since the spring of 2018. I am a true dog lover and I can’t wait to meet your fur baby and give them the loving care they deserve!

“Love all dogs!”

I love all animals and always have! I have two older Jack Russell Terriers and have had them since puppies. They don’t need as much exercise as I do nowadays! I love being outdoors, and I will be donating my earnings. For each month, I pick a fundraiser to donate my earnings to. If you have anything close to your heart, let me know and I can consider that foundation I am a non-smoker.
