Dog Walker / Pet Sitter
Amy is very excited to be a member of the Best Paw First Team! She has spent much of her professional career in animal welfare and truly has a passion for all pets, but has a special soft spot for Beagles! After graduating with an MBA from Georgian Court University, Amy worked as an Operations Manager for Petsmart in stores in NJ and Oregon. She oversaw all safety standards for the pets and staff and could always be found helping dogs and cats in the grooming salon or handling chameleons. After Petsmart, Amy worked at the County Animal Shelter in Portland, OR where she helped reunite lost pets, assist with community needs and take care of the animals that would stay at the shelter. After having two children, Amy and her husband packed up and moved back to NJ, where she has been working as a part time Data Researcher at Ocean County College and Full time mom. In Amy's free time, she does yoga, long distance running or spends hours in front of the TV. Amy also has a goal of writing a children's book about her cross country drives with her best boy Harry the Beagle, as she has pictures of Harry at Mt. Rushmore, Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Nashville, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans and so much more!
Amy was fantastic with my 3 cats. They all loved her right away when she came for a meet + greet, and she was very communicative while we were away, sending lots of update and photos with each visit. Very grateful for the peace of mind knowing Amy is going to check on my furbabies!
Amy has been great! Our dog can be a little anxious and not like new people, but he took to her right away. He loves playing and walking with her and we love how friendly and reliable she is!
