Paw Paw Pet Sitters
Born and raised in Portland, I am one of the rare native Oregonians. I love this city – and all the rainy beauty it has to offer. My love for animals and the outdoors led me to dog walking and pet sitting. What began as a side job moved quickly to a fun and rewarding career. My experience in caring for animals, paired with my background in management, has contributed to my success. I’ve walked hundreds of dogs over the years, as well as pet sat for cats, chinchillas, rabbits, snakes, lizards, and chickens! It's been incredibly enriching, not only for the connections I’ve made with the animals—and the daily dose of cute–but the relationships formed with my diverse clientele. I enjoy traveling, planning events, improving my culinary skills, and beating my husband at card games!
Growing up in Colorado has given me a strong love for all things outdoors. After earning my degree in Art History, I headed west for adventure. Once I discovered Portland my search was over. My love for animals of all species and personalities has grown tremendously over the years, expanding with each unique creature I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I truly cannot get enough! I continue my artistic pursuits with ceramics, drawing, and printmaking. I also love hiking, fishing, berry picking, and camping, especially when the sun shines in Oregon!
I'm a transplant from Michigan, but I’ve been falling in love with Portland since I was a little girl. I finally moved here in 2017 and found my dream job! I don’t have any fur-babies of my own at the moment so I’m excited to be able to care for dogs and cats with Paw Paw. I’m a firm believer in thinking of every animal as an individual and I take great care to learn about each unique personality to keep them happy and at ease. In my free time, I love to sing and make music - on days when I can’t go hiking!
