I know what I look for in a pet sitter, and I strive to provide the same high level of service for my own clients.
As a kid, I was always reading animal care books at the library. I am always learning and asking questions. I value continuing education, to stay current in trends and developing information in pet care, and I continuously update and improve my own skills and knowledge.
