Shizuka’s Bio

 
 
For the past six years, I have been working as a post-doctoral researcher in chemistry at the University of Maryland.   I am now between careers, and want to work as a pet caregiver while preparing for the exams necessary to become a pharmacist.   Although I have no prior experience as a professional caregiver, my experiences as a researcher have taught me to be very hardworking, detail-oriented, and dependable.   We have no pets of our own right now, but I grew up with three dogs, and like to care for all animals (well, maybe not bears...)   Our dogs were outdoor dogs, and that is bulk of my experience.  
I am open-minded to playing whatever games are interesting for the pet.   People describe me as being a very gentle and caring person, and I am opposed to using violence in disciplining pets.

She's part of the family now

This was our first experience using Sittercity and it couldn't have gone any better. Shizuka watched our pets (a dog and a cat) for 9 days over the Christmas holidays while we were out of state. She was so thorough and meticulous with paperwork and questions before we left that I knew she would be the most responsible sitter we could hope for. Shizuka made sure she knew exactly who and where our vet was located in case anything went wrong while we were gone. Everyday she texted a status update on how the animals were doing and asked questions if any behavior seemed out of the ordinary. She even put together an adorable Christmas Day collage with pictures of the animals! I wanted to leave her a fantastic review on here before closing my account because I know we'll only be using her from now on. :)
