New from Atlanta

Hi All!
Happy to have found this site. I am originally from New Orleans and currently living in Atlanta. I have been working remotely for over 20 years in the fashion industry along with building a side hustle of working with small businesses. I had a rottie named Bear who past a few years ago. I come from a Latin American family; first born in the U.S and I am bilingual (Spanish). I have traveled several countries over the years and currently working with a small online business selling pet supplies. An article popped up on my phone about the site and the possibilities seemed like great adventures to be had.

Welcome Olga! You will love this community. I am also from New Orleans and have been living in Pine Lake in the Atlanta metro area for a decade. We just got home from a Mardi Gras visit back in New Orleans. If you search the forum, you will see lots of great tips for getting started. If you have not already requested character references, make sure you do that. Taking a local sit helped me get my first review and then it got much easier to get sits from there. There are often dog sits in the ATL metro area or not too far away. Feel free to send me a PM if you ever want to talk or meet up for coffee or a walk. Lynn
