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!
