Monika grew up in Virginia and is a graduate of Virginia Tech. Monika moved to Richmond in 2005 with her husband Mike and her two precious cocker spaniels Molly and Murphy. In the summer of 2006 she became a pet sitter with The Pet Nanny under the previous owner. 

Monika professed to have found the perfect job! Her family agreed. Monika notes "I did say many times to my husband and friends -- 'I should walk dogs for a living'." - What fun! Then, the opportunity came to purchase The Pet Nanny business in 2008. Monika then became the second owner. 

Monika feels that she has worked with and learned from the best in the business. The Pet Nanny has always and will continue to operate with the philosophy of quality, integrity, compassion and love of the pets and the clients that we love and service.
