Hi, I’m Leah! I’ve been working in veterinary clinics and animal shelters since 2000 and I’ve been a Certified Veterinary Technician since 2006. I spent many years working in small animal, exotic animal, and large animal practices including some emergency hospitals. In 2008, I decided to slow down a bit and started working part time as a CVT and part time in a boarding kennel and pet sitting business and I’ve been pet sitting ever since!
I currently work full time as a Realtor in the Twin Cities and surrounding areas and I run Wave Your Paw part time. I love being my own boss and having these two careers that work so well together is a dream come true. I also help out at the Avian & Exotic Veterinary Housecall Service to keep all my skills sharp.
I share my life and my home (and most of my food!) with my 3 dogs – Luna, Nimitz, and Eisley, my ginger kitty Weasley, and 2 parrots. I love all things geeky – Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, Dr. Who, Lord of the Rings, you name it. I’ve recently gotten hooked on Disney vacations, running, and dog training.
I’m Beckie and I am a mid day dog walker at Wave Your Paw, plus I help with the administrative duties. I’ve been a dog walker and pet sitter since 2015 and I’ve also worked in avian care, as a daycare provider for children, and as a teacher. I’m currently semi-retired and enjoy jigsaw puzzles, sewing, and crafting. I have a black and white kitty that rules our household and 2 chatty Quaker parrots.
