TurnKey Pet Sitting, Keller,Texas
I was raised in the Northern Suburbs of Chicago by wonderful parents who have always supported my sister and I in our journey through life. After completing high school, I attended Indiana University and graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. I decided to move to the Dallas /Fort Worth area following graduation. I had received positive feedback about the career opportunities, and the wonderful warm weather and off I went.
I spent the next 17 years in sales and sales management for a fortune 500 company. Then I decided to pursue my dream of being an entrepreneurial. I got my license in Residential Real Estate. I helped homeowners in Northeast Tarrant by assisting them in selling and buying homes for 10 years.I grew my business significantly and became a multi year million dollar producer,.
So why pet sitting? My husband and I were planning a road trip to Michigan. I had decided that I was going to look for another business opportunity due a down turn in the market. Prior to leaving home, we struggled with the idea of kenneling our German Shepherd, Mika, and our pug terrier mix, Taffy. What if they caught an illness from another animal. or were traumatized by a change in their environment? We reluctantly left them with a friend who had her own busy life to handle, During our trip, I discussed the possibility of starting a pet and home sitting business. There was definitely a need and my background fit perfectly. I was use to managing my clients homes and I had been a pet owner my entire adult life. My husband, a local police officer, also discussed the importance of home safety. So I chose to create a balance of excellent pet care and home safety for my clients. TurnKey Pet Sitting became a reality in 2010.
In summary, I want to keep my clients' home safe and their pets happy and secure. I take pride in my work and am very happy about my pet sitting career. I enjoy providing a peace of mind for my clients and becoming an important part of their family.
In addition, I am a member of Pet Sitters International. The association updates me on new information in the pet industry. I have been a Member of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce and am an Ambassador of the Keller Chamber of Commerce. I am currently of the Board of Directors for the Keller Chamber of Commerce. "Turnkey Pet and Home Sitting"was nominated for Exemplary Customer Service in 2011 by Keller Chamber members, businesses, and individuals in the community. During my spare time I love relaxing with my husband, our four children and our three dogs. I also love walking my dogs, swimming, and visitng with my friends.
