Nancy is a lifelong animal lover who left the corporate world after 20 years to pursue her dream of working full time with animals.  She has been pet sitting part time for over 20 years, but decided it was finally time to jump in with both feet and begin making more of a difference in the lives of others.

Nancy began pet sitting long ago because of her own difficulties in finding a loving, reliable person to take care of her own fur-kids.  She also got tired of imposing on friends to take care of her girls and thought there had to be a better way!  So in 2014 Critter Buddies® was launched full time!

Nancy and her Critter Buddies® provide safe, loving in-home care for your fur-kids. Her goal is to have as little disruption to your pets’ lives as possible and ensure that they feel loved and part of the Critter Buddies® family. Your fur-kids will receive the BEST care possible from someone who understands and loves animals.

When Nancy isn’t out walking dogs or snuggling with other animals, you can find her out on her horses or mules or hiking with her own dogs.  Nancy and her husband are pet parents to 2 Brittanys, 2 horses, 2 mules and 9 chickens.  She and her husband enjoy camping, fishing, hiking, skiing, horseback riding, travelling and anything outdoors!
