I made this website to help you create your own 1st Rate Life, which is simply a life you absolutely love living. Working with animals was always my dream job. If you had asked me at any time of my life "What would you do if you could do anything, money is not an object?" I would have answered "do something with animals." Well, in 2011 I resigned from a soul-sucking job I had THOUGHT I would retire from with a plan to become a nurse, but the universe had other plans. In May 2012 I ended up starting my own pet sitting business, 1st Rate Pet Services,
with my life partner and for the first few years, I felt like my life really was a dream! As I got more comfortable in my new dream life, I wanted to help other people realize their own dreams, so in 2017 I got certified as a transformational life coach and have been on a journey of personal growth and exploration ever since. I love nature and being outside, so in 2020 when we were stuck at home in the lockdowns, my partner and I started turning our 1.5 acre yard into a food forest. Someday we hope to be able to take a walk through our yard and graze on all of our edible plants as we enjoy the fresh air. There is a peaceful satisfaction working with plants and the seasons and watching things grow. In my free time I love to shop at thrift stores, read, journal, do artsy/crafty things and take naps! It is amazing to spend every day doing things I love doing. If you have questions about where to even begin to design a life you absolutely love, feel free to send me an email!
