Animal Advocate, Dog Mom and Scientist

I am a Scientist who loves learning more about the world. Specially the world of animals. I am also a lifelong Yogi, a trained Meditation Coach, and a Foster Parent to rescue Dogs. I grew up with an American Spitz and a Cocker Spaniel. I adopted my kitty Naomi from the San Francisco SPCA. After Naomi passed away at age 15, I was very lost and sought out other pet people for support. When we adopted our dog Ella from Muddy Paws Rescue in NYC, I felt compelled to pay it forward by creating Petminded. I can't wait to meet you and your pets!
