About Marissa

Hello, I'm a veterinary student originally from New York studying here in Edinburgh for the next three years. I have a lot of experience working with all kinds of animals both through my veterinary degree and outside of my studies.

I'm comfortable with any and all types of pets and especially love cats and dogs. I've grown up with cats and dogs my entire life and my family back home recently got a puppy that I was helping to train for the first half of the summer. I have considerable experience pet sitting and dog walking.

I'm passionate about working with animals and would really love to give your pet the best experience possible!

Marissa looked after our 10-week old cockapoo puppy for an evening when we had a pre-arranged dinner. It was a last minute arrangement since our other pet sitter had fallen through, so Marissa was fabulous at being available, and very communicative, immediately! We were a little unsure of how it would go to leave him with a stranger (his first ever pet sitter) but as soon as Marissa arrived we got the sense that she knew what she was doing. The night that we were out for dinner went well. He took to her instantly, and she was flexible with our own timings. She also helped inform us about some puppy training questions that we had, since she had trained a puppy in the past. Highly recommended!

I've had Marissa sit for my cat once and I was very happy with her. My cat is old and requires medication twice a day and Marissa was the perfect person to look after her. I'd definitely choose her again and would definitely recommend!
