I grew up with a menagerie of pets, including birds, fish, a cat, and dogs. The care of & showing horses was a hobby from childhood until college-age. I am originally from CT & graduated from Central CT State University with a B.A. in Communications and a minor in Psychology. My emphasis was in Mass Media & began a career in TV production in 1990. After years of shift work & eventually burnout, I decided working for myself was a more attractive option, especially if I could combine a business with my biggest passion – dogs.
In 1996 I began a new career in pet sitting and have never looked back. I operated that first pet sitting business in CT for 8 years, then sold it in 2003 to move to CA with my husband and dog. Then, I started my second pet sitting service with my long-time friend who became my business partner, Michelle in 2004. I have totally immersed myself in the pet sitting field, constantly striving to better myself professionally. I am a member of Pet Sitters Associates, LLC and have attended four pet sitting conferences. I subscribe to several pet-related discussion groups on the internet, am the moderator of one, and network with over 80 other pet sitters in San Diego county, and many others all over the country. Together, Michelle & I along with our team, were named Best Dog Walking Service in San Diego by Ranch & Coast Magazine readers in 2016, 2018, 2019 & 2020.
