My name means “in place of a mother” in Greek which describes perfectly the reason I started TAILored Pet Services. I know cats are important family members and I wanted to provide a motherly substitute to the furry babies in my care.

Born and raised in Western Washington, my love for animals evolved at a young age. I began informally pet sitting for friends and neighbors at age 10 (34 years ago).

I worked in the newspaper industry for ten years before deciding I wanted to help make a difference in the lives of others. In 2004, I began working with numerous local non-profit organizations: Providence Hospice & Home Care, Village Theatre, the Snohomish County Center for Battered Women (now named Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County), Housing Hope and Cocoon House. After 5 years of working with agencies helping homeless people, I realized I wanted to work with animals so I traded my slacks/loafers for jeans/sneakers and started a dog walking and pet services company. I continue to make a difference in my community by taking part in events to support animal welfare organizations like the Animal Rescue Foundation of Everett and NOAH.
