Hello & Welcome! I am so excited to have you visiting our website! We are a group of professional pet sitters that LOVE what we do!
A little bit about me; I moved from a small town in Connecticut to Cave Creek, Arizona with my family in 1999. I was too young to choose where we moved but beyond grateful to land in Cave Creek! I have been a grateful "Creeker" for the past 20 years! My whole life I have had a love and respect for all animals! They have always been a part of my life. I can remember pet sitting for our neighbor who had a litter of kittens when I was 10 years old (Best job EVER!). Fast forward to today I have been able to turn my years of experience into an incredible company!
I started Paws & Claws Pet Sitting Services, LLC with the goal to help care for other animals just as I have my own. I would like to make it easier for you to leave your beloved pets home during your travels. Knowing your pets will be cared for with full love and attention by one of our experienced heart centered pet sitters will put your mind at ease while you're away while keeping your pets comfortable at home. I stand by our team of professional pet sitters and everything our company has to offer! We look forward to caring for your pets!
Take good care,
Pet Sitter & Office Assistant
Feline Welfare, Behavior and Enrichment Specialist
Pet CPR/First Aid Certified
I can’t imagine a life without animals. From my youth, I deeply connected and gained interest in an animal’s experience moving through their daily life, whether wild or domesticated. Embracing animals as sentient beings, I passionately advocate optimizing their quality of life in the wild, shelters, sanctuaries and home environments.
I am excited to work with the exceptional Paws and Claws Pet Sitting Team promoting enhanced, enriched and optimum animal welfare when their human companion is away. Providing peace of mind for the human and for their loved animal companion is my bliss.
I previously worked as an inaugural member of the esteemed Feline Behavior Team at Arizona Humane Society (AHS). I proposed, piloted and subsequently executed the position of Rounds Specialist at AHS ensuring each animal in the shelter had their environmental, medical, behavioral and enrichment needs met attaining to the highest Standards of Care, as documented in the American Shelter Veterinarians Book of Guidelines.
I currently volunteer at Home Fur Good shelter in Phoenix, AZ in the capacity of Feline Welfare, Behavior and Enrichment Specialist and maintain my certification for Level 1 Animal Reiki Practitioner. My approach to animal wellbeing encompasses a holistic modality.
Animals are captive to the energy that is provided to them by humans. I experience grace bringing sunshine to their day showering them with love, light, enrichment and the experience that “all is well”.
