Having lived alongside several amazing canine companions all my life, I understand the importance of finding knowledgeable, trustworthy caretakers to look look after your four-legged family members. My years of experience as an animal rescuer, shelter volunteer, and veterinary assistant providing onsite and in-home clinical care render me well-equipped to meet your pet's unique care needs. I have been fortunate to work domestically and internationally with breeds of all sizes, temperaments, and backgrounds. Whether during a walk, on the grooming table, or playing fetch in the backyard, your dog's comfort and safety are always my top priorities. I look forward to devoting my undivided attention to your furry friend sometime soon!

I moved to Bethesda from Virginia two years ago to work as a cancer research fellow. Growing up, I had a Peekapoo named Thomas (after the tank engine!) and loved taking him on long walks and snuggling with him on my lap. When I moved home for eight months after graduating college, my parents had just adopted a redbone coonhound puppy who we named Penny because of her copper colored fur. Penny has a lot of energy so we go on many walks when I visit home and we swim together at the lake in the summertime. Before college, I walked my neighbor’s rescue dogs whenever she went out of town to visit her daughters. When I worked as an ER medical scribe after college, I dog-sat for a physician and his wife whenever they went on vacation. I love dogs and walking outdoors, so walking for Wag! is an exciting opportunity for me to do both!
