Valerie’s Bio

My affinity for animals was well established very early on, with roots going back to childhood, and developed into the focus of my life work. My entire life I have always had pets for which I was responsible for…And now some of these members of our family I've cared for over 22 years!!

I truly connect with animals, and am motivated to understand
Animal Behavior of both wild & domestic species- this has long been an area of interest.In fact this has lead me to developing approaches to training, interacting, and understanding how animals express, & communicate- which is a phenomenal dynamic process! I advocate importance of environmental enrichment based on the unique individual needs & species characteristics.

Previously I have trained dogs for agility, obedience, showmanship, and even to pull a sled & cart!
I am an advocate for Pet Adoption & actively support local adoption, rescue organization, & vet clinic events. I have worked as a Pet Nutritionist, Pet Care Specialist at an area pet shop, and of course naturally a long time Pet Sitter, dog walker, groomer.
Previously, I've worked as Docent at Binder Park Zoo, and also trained as a Jr. Zoologist.
I am actively working to establish a nonprofit organization for the conservation of habitat, wildlife rehabilitation specialty focus of specific wildlife, community outreach, improving practices, addressing issues which have had a detrimental effect on habitat/ecosystem/species.

I am readily available to provide complete & comprehensive care to meet the unique needs of your family. I am able to provide excellent, flexible & consistent care, enrichment, & companionship-
If you are seeking someone you are able to count on, to be there,- just right as needed, assuring excellent care is provided to all members of the family- Whether it's regular exercise & Potty Breaks, during the workday or a Pet Nanny during times you will be traveling but want your pets to have the comforts of their home environment- I encourage you to feel welcome & reach me by email or phone and we can further discuss the details!
