I have fostered pit bull-type dogs twice. I currently volunteer with Lost Dogs of Wisconsin helping to locate lost dogs within the state.

I am the owner The Sitting Dog, LLC, a pet care services business where I provide care for pets when their owners are out of town.

I love to garden at home and wish we had a 7 month growing season rather than 3.
