About Maria

Hello!

I’m in Alice Springs likely up until January to spend time with family, learn a thing or two about Australia, and hopefully take care of your pet to help finance my stay!

I have loads of experience with animals, especially due to the fact that I spent most of my time as a kid helping my Aunt out at her grooming shops. Here, along with the experience of owning my own two adorable mutts, I have learned to recognize the subtleties an animal's emotions to ensure they are comfortable and happy. Other experiences of mine includes professional dog walking/sitting with the company Wag!, cat sitting for neighbors, volunteering at my local animal shelter, and working on a horse farm. My services include dog walking, day and overnight house visits, and whatever else you might need that I can fit into my schedule!

And to get to know me a bit better as a person: I’ve just graduated from university in the United States and have secured a year long holiday/work visa to spend time in Alice with family and gain some job/life experience. After Alice, I’m hoping to travel south with my friend to see as much of Australia as we can. Additionally since I have a year long work/holiday visa, I’m looking to secure a job related to my interests (such as environmental science and writing) to help narrow in on what I want to study in graduate school.

Best,

Maria
