I started my Pet Sitting business in Kailua Kona in March of 2008. During the first few years, I had a small team of Pet Sitters and we covered as far south as Milolii to as far north as Waimea.  In 2013, my husband and I moved to Keaau on the Hilo side of the island where land is a lot more affordable. We are very happy here and now we have 3 dogs, 5 cats, 2 rabbits and 5 chickens! I would love to get a couple of pygmy  goats and maybe a small Juliana   pig, but that would be down the line, or never (my husband would prefer never)!
"What you do makes a difference!  And you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."   - Jane Goodall
My husband and I have been together for 25 years now! Wow! Really?! We moved to the Big Island in 2004 from the Reno/Tahoe area, but consider ourselves Californians as we were only there for a short time (about 2 winters)!
I love animals, of course, but aside from that I love plants, and reading, and reading about taking care of plants! I love cooking, and experimenting with lacto-fermentation, and my husband and I are writing a book together.  My husband plays guitar and loves to throw around ideas and jam (just putting that out there)!
