What's Important


Sometimes when little girls take you by the hand, they touch your heart. I was truly blessed when she wandered into my life in 2003... and to be part of hers ever since. Many clients remember her riding shotgun in the early years and ask about her frequently. Whether it be helping with her homework, attending her soccer and volleyball games, or being included in her family gatherings, it's been truly one of my life's greatest joys to watch her grow and to share in her accomplishments. She might be the closest thing I ever have to a daughter, so to say I'm immensely proud of her is an understatement. She's off to college and the next adventure.
Soar high, my hanai!!!

I don't have to tell my clients how important our animals are in our lives. For me, “da kidz” took over the house and I'm privileged to live among them. I'm constantly amazed how they think everything I do is amazing. They bring warmth, love and joy every time I walk through the front door, and I owe them nothing less than the best life possible.

Being on call 24/7 obviously can have its limitations. The biggest challenge I've found is meeting my clients' needs while still enjoying a little piece of heaven called San Diego. It's a tight rope to walk… but the journey has been well worth the effort.
