“Scratch a dog and you’ll find a permanent job.”

I am a physical therapist and swim coach, and an avid dog lover. I enjoy being outside, and can think of no better way to spend my free time than by walking and playing with dogs. It is my personal goal to always have at least one family dog, and to help out my neighbors and friends with their own dogs as able.

I've been passionate about animals all my life. I grew up on a farm in the country, so I was constantly exposed to a wide variety of animals. I volunteered at my local veterinary clinic for several years when I was younger. I've owned cats my whole life, but have been walking and sitting friends' dogs for about a year. I realized that dog walking was the happiest part of my day every day, and that I want to do more of it because it's what I love!
