Special Friends Pet Sitting Service Founder
Every pet sitter is bonded, insured, and trained in pet CPR & first aid!
Animals of all kinds, shapes and sizes have always been a part of my personal life. My professional background includes over 10 years as a computer engineer. I call that my ‘former life.’ I gave that all up when I started volunteering at SICSA, where I rekindled my love for animals.
I very quickly jumped into the world of homeless pets and served in many capacities at SICSA, including Junior Volunteer Coordinator, Animal Care Coordinator, Dog Obedience Trainer, Pet Facilitated Therapy and Education Coordinator where I took animals to nursing homes, hospice, girl scout troops, schools, and other venues.
I loved my job! After twenty years at SICSA it was time to move on. I then founded Special Friends Pet Sitting Service, LLC.
Throughout my life, animals have been my love and passion. I am involved in several rescue organizations and have fostered numerous dogs and a few cats.
I’ve always known that pets are an important members of the family and deserve the best care possible! So that is what Special Friends provides each client, or as we like to say “member of our Special Friends family!”
