A lifetime of experience in caring for animals and people began as a child where I grew up on a dairy farm with a variety of barnyard animals and household pets. The strong sense of responsibility and work ethic was instilled by being one of 10 kids on the farm where we each had chores to do. I even learned to drive the farm tractor at an early age to help while putting up hay. I have loved being around animals all my life and now have fulfilled my dream of owning a small hobby farm of my own here in Dandridge TN.
I went on to become a nurse and have over 22 years of experience working in pediatrics, hospice as a bedside nurse and as a hospice administrator for many years. I enjoyed those years as a nurse and it fulfilled my desire to care for others, but now I am returning to what I love to do the most, which is caring for animals in addition to helping people, helping you with your pet sitting needs so that you can unplug and recharge yourself without the worry of who is going to look after the animals.
You can have the peace of mind and confidence that your house or farm critters are getting the love and attention that they need.
You will receive professional care for your pets and nest, so you can unplug and rest!
