Congratulations to Jessica Murphy for winning the EGO "Emergency to Go"!

Jessica is also a professional pet sitter so this will come in handy as she walks her clients! I love supporting my fellow pet sitters so I am sharing her story!

Jessica is a pet sitter in East Manatee (LWR to Parrish).  Her company is called Suncoast K9 Concierge, LLC.    She was a Social Worker in NJ for over 20 years working with Adult Protective Services as well as nursing homes...., and decided to make a career change when she moved to Florida.   She was doing a lot of volunteer work (dog walking, fostering, and transporting) with some local shelters as well as informally pet sitting for she decided to become professional, and has never regretted it.  Pet sitting has given her the flexible schedule she wanted for herself and her family,  as well as the time  to continue volunteer work and she has met some wonderful people along the way - including  her customers, and other pet sitters.

 She is certified in pet CPR as well as first aid, and has a huge first aid kit for pets in her car that's with her wherever she goes...except when she is on a walk. She has never seen a portable first aid kit for pets, and is so glad to be the winner of this contest, because it will be nice to have whatever she needs when her car kit is not nearby.

Jessica has three dogs currently of her own - a 5 yr old white boxer named Fender, a 4 year old boxer named Gibbi, and a 10 1/2 year old Dane named Harley.   Here is a link to her website:

I want to give a big thank you to Jane Bell of Pet Portables for donating this great kit. Her website is:
