We’re coming at you with another pet sitter spotlight this week. This time we’re interviewing Courtney; read on to learn a little more about her and what makes her heart shine!
What’s your favorite animal and why?
I love all animals so it’s really hard to choose one favorite. I love dogs and do my best to spend time with one each and every day because they have a special way of lighting up even the gloomiest days, no matter the time or place. I also love the majesty of big wild animals like elephants and giraffes.
What inspired you to become an animal lover?
I’ve been around animals since the day I was born. My parents were close friends with the owners of a small business who curated conservation education shows for local school children so we always hand random animals (in addition to our own cats and dogs) running around the house. We once had a tiger cub for a short stint. She was so small she could fit inside our mailbox!
What do you do for fun aside from animal care?
I love traveling, reading, hiking, and spending time with my friends and family. I’m a relatively laid back person and always love dinner with friends or cozying up with a glass of wine and a good book.
If you had to pick one word that describes you, what would you choose and why?
Reliable. I strive to be someone who is loyal and reliable no matter what curveballs are thrown my way. I have had some really solid, dependable people in my life so I try to emulate that support with my friends, family, coworkers and pet sitting clients.
What’s your ideal vacation?
I’ve always dreamed of traveling to India. I would love to meet people, try yummy food, and learn about the rich culture across the country. I always try to meet people and see their home through their eyes because that creates the most authentic learning experience.
