My name is Johanna Garfield. I am a musician currently working part-time at a chocolate shop, Compartes Chocolatier. My daily routine is filled music, cooking, yoga, and reading. I LOVE going on walks. I'm not California born and raised; I was born in Standish, Maine, and lived there on a farm for the first 11 years of my life, taking care of horses, dogs, cats, rabbits, chickens, pigs, and goats. I then continued on to Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I spent a lot of my time after school working at animal shelters, where they held mostly dogs and cats.
I've always worked with animals, they have always held a special place in my heart, and I guess I'm just a natural "pet-whisperer".
Each and every animal has their own personality, and I like to make a point to get to know them as individuals. Taking care of a pet requires certain restrictions, an immense amount of communication and knowing how to communicate, but most importantly patience, love and care, and leadership.
