About Calico Pet Sitting, Ltd. 

 

Pet sitting and dog walking is what I truly believe I should be doing with my life!  I love animals and people and have always wanted a career that allows me to provide a service to both. 

My background includes an education in animal care and training with a B.S. in Biology from the University of Kansas.  During my tenure at the Kansas City Zoo, I worked in wildlife rehabilitation and gained invaluable experience taking care of many different species of animals.  Before working full-time as a pet sitter and dog walker, I was the Director of a non-profit that specialized in passing legislation to protect animals and the environment on both a state and federal level.  Throughout my life, I’ve volunteered at the Humane Society, fostered both dogs and cats, worked with Feral Cats through TNRM programs (Trap-Neuter-Return-Monitor) and have endless amounts of hands-on experience with my own animals, which include:  dogs, guinea pigs, turtles, lizards and currently, three cats!

During our time together, all animals are given the same level of gentle care and love that they receive from their own family.  We will work together to ensure that you and your pets have the best experience possible!
