While I always knew I wanted to work with animals, I didn’t know exactly WHAT I wanted to be when I grew up. I took a 14-year detour serving in the United States Coast Guard. While I enjoyed traveling the world, I still wanted to work with animals. (Yes, this puddle pirate has circumnavigated the world, been to Antarctica and seen killer whales and penguins in the wild! AND I have the crossing card to prove it!) While stationed in Hawaii I volunteered at the Hawaiian Humane Society for a total of 5 years. While going to school for my AA, a job as a pet sitter opened up and I fell in love with the job. After my husband and I moved to Las Vegas in 2014 I started my own business caring for pets. I have the best job in the world and I wouldn’t give it up for the world. I’m pet first aid/CPR trained, licensed, bonded and insured. I also gained experience working for the best pet ophthalmologist in Las Vegas part time for over a year and I've been lucky to network with some of the greatest professional pet sitters in Las Vegas. As we continue grow LVPPS we will continue our education learning from other pet professionals. Together we can all continue to take the best care of your beloved pets!
