WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO:
It gifts me the ability to slow down and connect with a family and their pet in their place of comfort. I am able to learn so much about their relationship and life together and am humbled to be allowed a glimpse of their story. It is an honor to play a small role in helping families towards the end of their time with their companion--whether through pain management, palliative measures or euthanasia. This is truly profound work and the gratitude I feel is beyond compare.
A dog can never tell you what she knows from the smells of the world, but you know, watching her, that you know almost nothing.
