I have lived in the Cleveland area all my life, and have run a pet sitting business here for the last eleven years. There are a variety of activities I enjoy including reading, swing dancing, hiking, painting, playing clarinet, and yoga. I enjoy seeing live music at Wade Oval Wednesday or the Cleveland Institute of Music. I am very interested in environmental issues and veterinary medicine. I listen to a wide range of music from classical to swing, and much of what I listen to does not really fit into one category. I have recently enjoyed books about the history of the violin, America's obsession with our pets, and problems caused by overfishing.
