Growing up, I had many types of pets. I like to describe the way I was raised as "in a zoo." My mother loved animals, so much that she started her own pet-sitting business called I LOVE ANIMALS! I helped mom during the busy seasons: spring break, summer, Thanksgiving, and the holidays. We took care of other people's animals in their homes, so that animals experienced as little stress as possible while their owners were relieving their stress on vacation! Over the years, I have cared for all types of animals, including but not limited to lizards, guinea pigs, ferrets, chinchillas, birds, dogs, goats, pigs, and horses.
I also volunteer at Austin Pets Alive! walking dogs and the shelter and fostering senior dogs.
