Laurie joined Bay Area Pet Pals in the Summer of 2017. Her love of animals makes her a wonderful addition to the team. Dog walks and pet care are just some of her duties at home too – as she enjoys spoiling her own two sweet dogs, her special cat, and cute little bunny. Laurie has also shared her life with two birds that she loved dearly. She really has a special heart connection with all furry family members, and just can’t pass up the chance to stop to pet and talk to any dog she sees.

As a true animal lover, Laurie grew up surrounded by dogs and cats and can’t imagine a life without their special energy. Her love of nurturing animals extends to humans as well. As an empowerment therapist, one of her favorite parts of her work entails walking with clients and their dogs in nature. Her kindness and patience shines in her ability to work with all kinds of people as well as their pets.

When not snuggling her furry kids, Laurie enjoys time at home with her two teenagers and husband. She also teaches dance, paints, and looks forward to making sure your pet feels loved when in her care. In Laurie’s eyes, all animals are earth angels.
