Hello there pet parents!
I’m Kami, a recent Washington transplant. I’ve been all over the map– Chicago most recently, Colorado, and Texas, but Washington is quickly shaping up to be my favorite place yet! Even though my family often moved, we always kept an equal balance in our household. Two dogs, two cats– and I was much in favor of this arrangement. When I moved to Chicago after graduating high school, I found myself deeply missing the daily interactions I had grown so accustomed to with my family’s pets. However, when you live in an apartment that doesn’t allow animals, you seek out a job in pet care!
I found exactly what I was looking for with Highrise Pet Care in downtown Chicago (left). I started off as a caregiver on the team, servicing River North’s finest pups. After a year of dog walking, cat visits, and pet sitting, I was promoted to Operations Manager.
In this new role, I was able to continue my daily dog walks, manage our awesome team of 25 caregivers, and work with our over 300 active clients! I’d be lying if I said it was easy, but I completely fell in love with the work I was doing. My love of pets and helping other pet parents in need of a great pet care provider is exactly what lead me to opening up shop with Pink’s Pups.
Leaving all the pets I had come to know and love in Chicago was hard. Extremely hard! I left Highrise Pet Care with a heavy heart after completing a wonderful 2,537 dog walks. I’m now setting my sights on the future, which is rebuilding another excellent pet care community on my own. Long term, I hope to build a tightly knit team of dedicated caregivers, who have a passion for pets as much as I do.
Some of my hobbies include working my part time job at the Dogtopia of Redmond, binging dog show videos on youtube, reading sci-fi novels, or playing a video game or two.
My goal: Provide exemplary pet care services for loving pet families in need, founded on loving your #1 as if they were my own.
