Mara – Uptown

My name is Marangeliz but you can call me Mara 🙂 I was born and raised in New York City so walking around the city and taking in everything that it has to offer isn’t very new to me, although it’s still exciting some days! I am currently pursuing a degree in Veterinary Technology, and I also take art/animation classes during my free time.

I love dogs with all my heart! I’ve been fortunate enough to have dogs in my household my entire life so I am very familiar with caring for and loving our four-legged friends and consider them to be family.  Aside from learning about dog health care and how to help our furry friends live their best and most healthy lives in school, I also have experience working as a professional dog walker before the pandemic, which unfortunately, did a number on the dog walking industry with everyone working from home.  I also have previous experience working in an animal shelter where I was lucky enough to meet all kinds of different personalities. Although it was a lot and very hard on the heart a lot of days, it was so rewarding to give those sweet souls looking for their furever homes companionship when they needed it the most.

As a pet owner myself, I value the trust and love our dogs can give us. I’m so excited to meet and accompany your furry baby – we’re going to have such a great time together!
