I’ve always pursued my passions with, well, passion!

I’ve turned things I love – music, science, dance, children – into ways to serve my communities.

I brought The New Haven Symphony to Carnegie Hall. And helped launch a world-class symphony hall in Seattle and a science center in Detroit. I founded North Carolina Arts in Action, bringing innovative dance to local schools.

After losing our two dogs in one year, I was desperate for canine companionship and started borrowing friends’ dogs for walks – always scheming up ways to keep them longer and longer. Until I had an AHA moment: I should start a dog walking service!

That’s how Walk & Wag was born.

Today, Walk & Wag has grown from one-dog-walking-woman (me) to an ever-growing team serving hundreds of local clients. My goal is to provide dog walking and pet sitting to people like you – because you don’t always have time to give your pets all they deserve.

I work exclusively with reliable, deeply caring professionals – because I know these are the only people you’d ever trust with these amazingly important members of your family.

When not running (literally) Walk & Wag, you’ll find me spending evenings with my husband Emil and daughter Emma – very often at UNC’s Memorial Hall.
