During my time as a Vet Tech, I worked with dogs, cats, small exotic mammals, birds, and reptiles. Small and exotic pets quickly became my love and I have a special passion for educating pet owners on their care and husbandry. In early Spring 2012, I quit my job as a Vet Tech to stay home and care for my newly born daughter.
In October 2012, I began Pawsitively Pets as a pet blog "dedicated to all things animal". It's reach has grown to a nicely sized crowd of pet-lovers. Now, I work as a full time Professional Pet Blogger and Brand Ambassador. I love my job, and couldn't be more happy to grow this blog into what it has become now.
Pawsitively Pets is a top pet blog enjoyed by thousands of pet-lovers each month. We were nominated as Finalists in DogTime's 2014 Petties Awards in the "Best Overall Pet Blog" and "Best Designed Blog" categories. Pawsitively Pets was also a Finalist in the 2015 BlogPaws Nose-to-Nose Pet Blogging and Social Media Awards for "Best Written Blog Post".
I am a pet mom to an 12 year old Pit Bull named "Shiner". Contrary to popular belief, Shiner is not named after the beer, but for the marking over her eye. Shiner enjoys sunbathing, laying on my bed, playing in the yard, and eating stuff she's not supposed to.
I have an aquarium of assorted freshwater fish too. They are pretty quiet and don't cause too much trouble.
Adopted in October of 2014, Jack and Gus are two mischievous Fancy Dumbo-Eared Rats. They enjoy eating, fighting with each other occasionally, cuddling with each other often, and making messes. Rats make great pets and these two are awesome!
Most recently added to the Pawsitively Pets family is Callie the Cat. Callie is a Tortoiseshell Tuxedo cat who I adopted from a family member in February of 2015. She's about 9 years old. Callie is friendly, playful, and independent. She likes canned food, playing with string, licking my hand, and bananas.
I have two daughters. Lily is 10 years old and Violet is 3 years old.
