I have always had a love for all animals. Having worked as a veterinary technician for 15 yrs in practices from Boston to Colorado that treated small animals like birds, iguanas and turtles to larger animals like cats, dogs and the occasional baby elk! I also volunteered at the New England Aquarium in Boston, feeding orphaned baby harbor seal pups in order to get them strong and old enough for release.
What I love most about this job is being able to be around such gentile, calming souls. It's hard to have a bad day when you're surrounded by such happy, wiggly, loving fur babies! I love our Clients as much as their doggies and treat their 4 legged companions as if they were my own.

I have been a dog lover All my life! I’m a chocoholic too. Working for Walk This Way is Heaven for me! I've been working for Niki since August 2009, and I still can't believe I get paid to do this. And if I use the word "work", I put it in quotes because it doesn't seem like "work". We have so many Fantastic dogs, and I just love watching them play and have so much fun together!!
First let’s cover what draws me towards the bond of nature and animals. I've always had companionship with dogs, people, peace and nature. The opportunity to blend these elements seemed to be a natural fit. Trails fill my desire to be outdoors, dogs fill the sense of companionship outside of my daily connection to family and friends. I enjoy seeing the reward surface in the dogs I walk as we develop a balanced relationship between beauty, friendship and mutual necessity. I feel the time is well shared and equally rewarding.
Ok, I'm not officially employed, but I sure am part of the team!
You might see me herding the pack or sleeping in the car on the way home. I love to "work" at
Walk This Way CA.
Livin' the Dream!
I’ve always had a dog in my life. Four years ago I was blessed with my very own dog. She’s a miniature long-haired dachshund and she is my world. I’ve always wanted to work with animals and help them in anyway I can. Being able to get to work with Niki, all the amazing pups and clients is just a dream come true to me.
Best. Job. Ever.
