Aysha

Pet Sitter

PET SITTER

Hometown:

Roanoke, VA

Pets:

A dog named Marley

Interesting Fact:

One day while picking her son up from school, a  very neglected dog just jumped in the car with her. Aysha and her family swear that this was the reincarnation of their beloved miniature schnauzer LaLa that had passed away a few months before. Aysha worked diligently to find the owner but and no one claimed her, so “Marley” became the newest family member. Marley sings and cuddles just as LaLa did. 

Biography:

Growing up Aysha had a house full of animals – dogs, birds, hamsters, a micro pig, and gerbils. Family and friends would often drop their pets off for days at a time so that Aysha could care for them while they went on vacation. At a young age, she would spend the money she made to buy dog beds, leashes, and supplies so that all her furry friends would be super comfortable during their stay. As an adult, she has continued to be a compassionate animal lover and has raised her children to be as well. Aysha is a professional baker and owns a custom cake business.
