Nurturing the human - animal bond


I'm here to help you with your pet care needs!

Whether you are single, married, have kids or just have roommates, I help families of all types and sizes provide the best care for their pets to keep everyone healthy, happy and safe. 

I believe strongly that the more we know about pets, the better we can care for them. That's why education for myself and my clients is of utmost importance. I engage in ongoing continuing education to keep me up to date on pet health, pet behavior and pet safety. I work hard to educate people of all ages about pet care and safety through individual consultations and group classes for adults and for kids. I provide pet care services such as dog walking and vacation pet care, so that you know your pets are in good hands when you can't be there for them. And lastly, I am certified as a pet loss counselor, so I'm here to help you through the grieving process when that time comes.

From bringing home your new pet, to helping your pet cross the rainbow bridge, I am here to help your family navigate this wonderful journey of pet parenting. It's not always easy, but it can be so very rewarding.


By providing your family with pet care, education and support, we can work together to manage your pets in a way that is safe and joyful for everyone.
