My name is Darcy and I'm a 24 year old psychology graduate whom has moved to Canberra this year undertaking a position in workplace psychology.
I've always had a passion for working with animals and hope to work in ethology (animal psychology essentially!) in the future.
Prior to moving, I lived with and looked after a rescue dog (Neo!). I've grown up with dogs (cavoodles, begaliers, labradors, greyhounds, bull terriers plus more.), birds (cockatoos), cats, yabby's, fish, chickens.. ...and I miss having animals in my life!
I've done lots of babysitting where most of the time I end up pet sitting as well. I've also done some pet sitting/house-sitting for two different families back in Victoria (one with a very anxious kitty and the other with a very energetic labrador!) The main reason I thought Mad Paws would work for me is because of my personal/professional experience and its great reputation for animal care - also because of my motivation to work toward including animals in my career journey.
I'm open to helping out in the form of walking, sitting or hosting.
I currently working 8:30am -5pm but am very flexible outside of these hours (including over nights and weekends).
I look forward to getting to know you and your fur baby/ies more!
