Dog Walking Manager

1. How long have you been with District Dogs?

I’ve been with District Dogs since August 2015. I did pet sitting for many years and eventually started with Rover.com. I was formerly a Pastry Chef and left the industry to get more involved with dogs. Since doing so, I’ve also started Piccadilly Paws, my own all-natural dog treat endeavor.

2. Do you have pets of your own?

I grew up in Rochester, NY with a Golden Retriever named Reggie. We also had several exotic birds. These days it’s just my girl Momma, a dilute calico cat, and our family dog Tucker who is a Yorkie-poo.

3. What is your hometown?

Pennfield, NY.

4. What is something you want to do for the first time this year?

This year I want to go hiking/camping in the Adirondack Mountains.

5. Tell us your spirit animal

I took a quiz on what my spirit animal is: “Awww it’s a deer!! So cute, so cuddly, sooooo tasty” haha!
