Andrea joined the Whoa Doggy! Team in December, 2012 as a part time dog walker and pet sitter, but within a few short months, she became a Full-Time team member! Andrea came to Whoa Doggy! with a lot of professional experience in the pet industry. She worked at Atlanta Pet Rescue initially as a kennel technician, helping with vaccines, drawing blood, and administering medications. Then she became intimately involved with each pet that came in, writing their bios and interviewing and counseling families on choosing the right pet for their home, and coordinated foster homes for pets in need until they were finally adopted.
Andrea hails from Silver Spring, Maryland, and has lived in Atlanta since 2004. She lives in Gresham Park with her two adopted dogs, Toro, (Chihuahua), and Dexter (Schipperke/Chihuahua mix), and her two cats, Stella (Munchkin Cat), and Man Man (Domestic Short Hair kitty). Andrea has a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Printmaking, and on her spare time she really enjoys making beautiful art, and occasionaly volunteers at Atlanta Beagle Rescue.
Andrea’s experience and passion are a wonderful addition to our Whoa Doggy! family, and our clients’ rave reviews confirm that. Andrea is our regular dog walker in Decatur, Kirkwood, Lake Claire and Candler Park neighborhoods, and also takes on pet sitting duties in the mornings and evenings.
