My love of animals started when I was a baby, reaching from my stroller for every dog that passed. I volunteered for the Animal Humane Society as a teenager and then for Can-Do Canines when I was in college. After earning a bachelors degree in sociology at Hamline University, I enrolled at Globe University to pursue a degree in Veterinary Technology. Then, after several years in general practice, I moved into specialty and referral medicine, working at BluePearl Veterinary Partners in Blaine. It was there that I sharpened my technical skills, working as an oncology technician for two years and then moving into a float position, helping all departments, with a focus on ICU and patient care.

Why choose a sitter with a cvt instead of a boarding facility?
Boarding facilities can make mistakes with medications, aren’t present with pets overnight, and don't necessarily know what to look for when a pet becomes ill. Keeping your pal at home is typically the best way to ensure they are stress-free and well-managed medically when you are away.
I have experience as an ICU tech and in emergency medicine. I will notice if anything is slightly off with your pet and quickly take the correct steps to ensure they are safe and healthy. I'm also comfortable with post-op pets, aging pets, and pets with diabetes or other conditions that need to be carefully managed at home.
