My name is Karen, and I established KHSS PetSitting in the early part of 1990 as a way to earn a little extra money for college. After graduating, I found that I had fallen in love with the idea of owning my own business. My passion for the animals I care for shows through in every aspect of my business. Twenty + years later I still love it, and would not give it up for the world.

"Karen has been our pet sitter for over 17 years! We were so lucky to find her—I can’t imagine entrusting the care of our 4 legged family members to anyone else. There have been a couple of emergencies when we were out of the country and our pets needed care; Karen handled it expertly and lovingly. We can’t leave Home without her." - Paula

"Karen’s the best! I’d trust her completely with my pets - Carol"
