Work History
07/2018 to Current
Pet Sitter/Dog Walker/Animal Care Doordash Allen Park, MI,

I have owned my own insured pet sitting business since mid 2018. Zen Jessica began after losing my precious American Bulldog unexpectedly. Twenty years of prior dog/cat ownership and care lead me down the path of wanting to help others with their pets. I have extensive experience with dogs of all sizes and breeds. In addition to being comfortable with medical issues; anxiety, seizures, administering meds, etc, I offer dog walks, playtimes, drop-in visits, overnights in people's homes and basic obedience. My love and passion for animals is a driving force in my every day life.
