Get to know me

My goal is to provide your pet the level of attention, comfort, and care that I expect ​for my own sweet dog Poppy whenever I am away. I can only truly relax and enjoy ​travel when I am absolutely certain that my pup and home are safe. For Poppy, that ​means staying in a familiar place, maintaining a stimulating routine, regular play, and ​LOTS of cuddles.

For work, I am a long-time staff member for the UCSF School of Medicine. My role is ​primarily remote these days, allowing flexibility with location and schedule. I am a ​long-time SF resident and have an apartment in Western Addition near Alamo ​Square. Since the pandemic, I have been exploring life outside the city’s 7x7 ​boundaries with Poppy. Taking care of my friends homes and pets during this time ​opened my eyes to the possibility of starting my own pet-sitting service.
