Shaunna, Mt. Tam Dog Co. Pack Leader
I grew up in Marin with my younger brother, our German Shepherd (Jessie), our cross-eyed Siamese cat (Lucas), and a bird I named Stevie. After high school, I moved to Boston to attend college and, when I called home, the first thing I asked was how Lucas, Eddie and Annie were doing! I moved to San Francisco, attended SFSU as a psychology major and began working in the mental health field as a counselor and caregiver.
In August of 2011, I rescued my dog, Lucy. However, I really do think she rescued me. I started dog-sitting for dog park friends who encouraged me to be a dog-walker or work with dogs in some aspect. I started looking into some places, but what helped with my decision process was: would I trust this company with Lucy? Around this time, I spotted the Mt. Tam Dog Co. van, started day-dreaming about walking dogs on trails or on Mt. Tam, met Dave and Erin and learned that was exactly what I would be doing! I have been with Mt. Tam Dog for over a year, and am excited to learn new things and grow with a team of bright, motivated, enthusiastic and professional individuals.
My dog and all the dogs I am trusted to care for and hike on a daily basis bring me so much joy and constantly teach me to live in the moment. I provide them with attention, love, and positive reinforcement and, in return, I am rewarded with unconditional love.
