The Team at Pets Crave Love™
Providing certified professionals to love your dogs while you’re away.
Founder & CEO
I have been involved with dogs my entire life! When I was four years old, I was competing against the adults with my Belgian Tervuren in conformation shows and obedience trials. When I was thirteen, I discovered the sport of dog agility, and I was hooked. Throughout my competition years, I became selected for four different international agility world teams, sponsored by the American Kennel Club and I traveled with two different dogs overseas, making the international agility finals at the European Open four times. I have also achieved Master Agility Championship titles on many dogs as well as the Agility Dog Champion title on two dogs. Translation, I have spent many years traveling the world and competing successfully with my dogs and coaching many other dogs and handler agility teams to achieve their dreams as well.
I retired from competing and instructing in the sport of dog agility eight years ago. I also have extensive experience training under many reinforcement-based dog trainers and Veterinarians. I spent most of my recreational time learning as much as I can about holistic care for pets, including my most recent adventure, becoming a Raw Dog Food Certified Specialist!
I love dog walking as it allows me to use my dog training and behavioral wellness skills daily; I look forward to meeting you and your dog(s)!
Hi! I’m a Certified QuickBooks ProAdvisor and is in charge of the bookkeeping for Pets Crave Love.
I have surrounded myself with animals of all shapes and sizes from a very young age. I grew up on a farm with goats and horses and continued my love for pets when I started working in Veterinary Hospitals, Doggie Daycare’s and Dog Training Facilities.
I also have many years of experience in my second passion, which is accounting and bookkeeping. Although books is currently my side job, it is my goal to grow my business and work for myself full time.
My household currently contains Hudson, a Lab Mix, Digby, a Shih Tzu Chihuahua Mix, and Loki, a fat cat.
Pet Care Specialist & Neighborhood Lead
Before coming to Austin, I lived in Virginia, where I was active with the local SPCA. My husband, sons, and I fostered hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens during our time in Virginia, with some of them coming from very challenging conditions, such as unlicensed puppy mills and even confiscated dog fighting rings. Each of these animals had their own individual personalities and it was very rewarding to see them go to terrific forever homes.
In 2011, our family received the first family award from the local community volunteer organization, where we were nominated by the SCPA.
Currently, we have two dogs in our family, both from the SPCA in Virginia. Deke is a 14-year old chow-retriever mix who is a bit set in his ways but is in good health and still shows a bit of his old spunk, particularly around dinner time. Aruba (“Ruby”) is a 3-year old flat coat collie who was a “foster failure,” in that we adopted her after fostering her and her 7 puppies. She is an energetic, headstrong, loyal 3-year old who can’t get enough walks and at times has pulled the “puppy” back out of Deke. Ruby and I cannot get enough of all the different parks and trails in Austin that make this such a wonderful place to live.
It’s great to be a part of such a wonderful community that appreciates our four-footed pals. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and care for your pets as part of the Pets Crave Love team!
Pet Care Specialist
Hi! I have always had a passion and addiction for all animals! As a kid I was active in 4H and rode and showed quarter horses. We always had a variety of pets when I was growing up.
As an adult I got into the sport of dog obedience and conformation with my Doberman Pinschers. My most recent involvement has been in the canine sport of nose work.
In 2016 I retired as owner and manager of a pet boarding facility in Magnolia, TX. Currently I am owned by a 7 year old AKC Champion Doberman with an Advanced nose work title.
I look forward to caring for your pets as a member of the Pets Crave Love team!
