Pet Sitter Erika

Erika loves her job as a pet sitter and dog walker with Peak City Puppy.  Being an only child, Erika always begged for a dog or cat when she was younger, but was unsuccessful in her efforts. Once she lived on her own, she started out small and got one dog, but didn’t stop there. Now she has four fur babies and would have more if her husband would allow it. When Erika isn’t keeping her schedule full with Peak City Puppy visits, she is a pre-school teacher at a preschool in Apex. Erika is a Jersey Girl at heart, and has since lived in Pennsylvania, Arizona, and currently in Apex, NC. She gradated with a BFA from Marywood University in 2004.

Cathy has lived in Apex for over 20 years.  Her professional background has been in animal health and nutrition, marketing and human pharmaceutical sales, but her avocation has always been animals.
