Andrea, owner and founder is a Philadelphia native, making her home in Brooklyn nearly 11 years ago. She grew up alongside an active Springer Spaniel, 3 cats, and a pet iguana. Pet deprived in college, she managed to occasionally walk friends' dogs, cats, and even ferrets, while volunteering at her local PetsMart. Six years ago, Andrea and her family finally adopted their first rescue pup, Willow. Resident kitty Chutney is getting along nicely with her housemate. Andrea holds a BA in Urban Planning from University of Pittsburgh, and an MS in Education from Brooklyn College. She has taught in a local preschool and public elementary schools and has received her Dog Walking Academy certification. She and her family are members of the Park Slope Food Coop, Gowanus Alliance, and Wildlife Conservation Society. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, nature, yoga and hanging with her two daughters, husband and dog.
