I have been a pet lover and owner my entire life. Currently, I'm owned by a calico kitty named Callie, an orange tabby named Maynard, a chinchilla named Oliver and two leopard geckos! Professionally, I worked for Petsmart for 2 years as the Pet Care Department Lead, in which I was in charge of caring for small animals, reptiles, birds, and fish. I worked at 2 different vet offices, one as a receptionist, and the other as an assistant/receptionist. When I was an assistant at the feline only vet, I helped care for cats in boarding (cleaning, feeding, giving medications) so have lots of cat experience! My volunteer experience includes working at the CT Audubon in Sharon, CT in their wildlife rehab clinic, in addition to working at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT manning the touch tanks and educating visitors about marine life. I also did an internship with Horizon Wings, a raptor rehab facility (birds of prey). As far as pet sitting, you name it, I've cared for it!
