Marisa has loved and cared for animals since her youth. This attitude manifested in sharing her childhood home with several pets and ultimately, the creation of Travelers Pet Care in 2014. She initiated a career in pet care because she wanted the pets who came into her care to experience wellness, joy, and adventure. Her years caring for her own variety of pets, including dogs, cats, fish, reptiles, birds and rodents, made professional pet care second nature to her. As a dedicated pet care professional, Marisa has earned a pet CPR and first aid certification, studied local pet ordinances , and has been a member of Pet Sitters International for several years. Since starting Travelers Pet Care, Marisa and her team has cared for over 400 pets. As a lifelong learner, Marisa enjoys engaging with others and listening to audiobooks in her spare time. She currently shares her home with her loving animals, a Siamese cat named Jasmine and terrier mix named Milo.
