Meet The Team!

Erin H.,

Founder, Dog Walker, Pet Sitter & "Boss Lady"

Former craft cocktail bartender turned dog walker, Erin's first love has always been animals. She grew up with a total of 8 Basset Hounds, raised an American Bulldog puppy, cared for her rescue dog Skippy into his senior years of 16 1/2, and most recently fostered and ultimately adopted a pair of loving sisters, a German Shepherd and Papillon mix - Rae and Finn.

 

Erin has been inspired by dogs of many different breeds, personalities, ages, and sizes, allowing her to easily adapt to pets with many different needs.

 

Making the leap to the pet care profession has allowed her to apply the passion she had for providing exceptional experiences and exceeding expectations in the fine dining industry, and now offer that in a different industry, to both people and pets!

Erin holds certifications in Pet CPR/First Aid and Pet Nutrition, has taken a master class in Dog Socialization and Obedience, and is a NAPPS Certified member of the National Association for Professional Pet Sitters. You can find her out in the field walking many packs of happy pups during the day, hosting multiple dogs for sleepovers in her home, and hard at work in her "free time" keeping Petunia Pet Care operating 24/7!

Debby H.,

Pet Sitter & "Mama Bear"

Born and raised in Maryland, Debby loved and cared for family pets growing up, including dogs, cats, birds, and horses. As an adult, she and her family have had numerous dogs, all of which were rescued, the most recent being her beloved companion for 16 years.

 

Debby attended the University of MD, where she obtained a degree in nursing, followed by graduate school in Boston, and has her doctorate in Nursing Practice! She worked for many years as a nurse with critical-care and cardiac patients, and also currently works with terminally ill patients in their homes.

 

After more than 40 years of experience in healthcare, she has seen the impact of pets on not only maintaining health and quality of life, but in actually improving illness. She is grateful for the opportunity to support pet owners by providing quality care to their pets!

Valerie A.,

Pet Sitter & "Nana GG!"

Valerie was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland. She and her two sisters grew up caring for family pets including dogs, ducks, and a favorite parakeet! As an adult, her family continued to include dogs and cats as family pets.

Valerie attended the University of Maryland, obtaining a Masters degree in Nursing. Her nursing career focused on medical, surgical, and cardiac services. After 45 years, she retired from Sinai Hospital to care for her 95 year old mother throughout her hospice care.

Presently Valerie's daughter and her three grandchildren reside in Phoenix, Maryland. Their most recent pet addition is her granddaughter's pet pig named Harlee! Nana GG is Valerie's special nickname with her grandpig!

 

She very much looks forward to being a support to pet owners by caring for their fur babies.

Liz W.,

Dog Walker

Growing up in Baltimore, Liz spent much of her youth at the SPCA aiding her aunt in kennel care and clean up. As a child, she wanted to grow up to be a veterinarian. After spending several years in the banking business, longing to work with animals, she was finally able to have that opportunity in 2017 where she began working in downtown Baltimore walking dogs. She fell in love with the ability to get out of the office and enjoy the outdoors year round with the dogs by her side!

 

She had her first dog, a Lab-Shepherd mix for 16 years, and is currently a Dog Mom to Leia, her rescue boxer. Liz has cared for Leia through several medical and surgical issues throughout their first year together, remaining by her side and helping her through her recovery. Leia is now happily back to her goofy self with the help of her Mom! When Liz is not walking dogs and caring for her fur baby, she loves crafting DIY decor, and editing photos (usually of her dog), and when she travels, she also loves to visit every zoo and aquarium!

Jenna B.,

Pet Sitter & Dog Walker

Jenna grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and has always been extremely passionate about her love for animals. She spent her childhood summers on her grandparents' farm in Sykesville, where she was constantly surrounded by nature and a multitude of "odd" pets - turtles, bunnies, goats, chickens, and more! Jenna has always been a dog owner, and as a freshman in high school she adopted her very own dog, Miley (aka Monkey).  

 

Currently she attends the University of Maryland, College Park, studying Animal Science. She also plans to attend veterinary school to attain her DVM. She has interned at three different animal hospitals and has a great deal of other animal-related experience. 

When she is not in school, she is volunteering her time, and working with Petunia Pet Care dog walking and pet sitting!
