Christine moved from NY to NC with her husband in 1992. While raising two sons, Christine taught preschool. Looking for a change to go along with the transition of grown children, Christine heard about Peak City Puppy through a friend. It was a great opportunity to have more animals in her life! Dog walking has always been a favorite activity, and her own “SPCA Special”, a hound girl named Cookie, gets walked daily on the greenways in Cary. Dogs are amongst Christine’s favorite people! She thinks it’s wonderful to arrive at a house and have a dog thrilled to see her and get outside. Sharing how cute and comical dogs are with their pet parents is an extra perk! It’s a joy to love on clients’ dogs, although, Cookie does require a sniff down once Christine gets back home.

Nancy has always been an animal lover and cannot recall a time in her life when at least two or more pet companions were not present, including horses, cats, dogs, a rat, fish, and a parakeet. After having worked more than 40 years in the administrative field in various venues, including corrections, law enforcement, academia, and 18 years with IBM, she was fortunate enough to be able to retire and pursue her favorite activity—spending time with animals, rather than people. She was employed as a Professional Animal Companion in Tucson for three years prior to moving to Cary and has been with Peak City Puppy for almost two years. As a pet parent of several cats and dogs with health issues, she is quite experienced in giving injections, administering subcutaneous treatments, and dispensing oral medications. Nancy lives with her family, where they lovingly spoil two dogs-- her precious Pom, Jezebel, and dear Chloe, and three cats: Rosie, Sammie, and Claire, all of whom are rescues of some sort. Making regular donations to various animal-welfare agencies provides her with a feeling of helping as many animals as possible in some small way.
