Julie W.

Hi everyone! My name is Julie Wilson. I live in Portage and have a cat named Belle and a one-year-old rescue puppy named Nomi. I had multiple cats and dogs when I grew up in the Metro Detroit area. After I graduated from WMU, I moved here permanently, in great part because of the welcoming community and beautiful surroundings. I am a retired autism specialist. I have two adult children, a daughter in-law and a one-year-old grandson who all live in the area.

When my children were growing up, we raised a dog and a cat. Sadly, we lost both to cancer. In addition to my own adorable pets, I now have two grand doggies and two grand kitties that I help with (spoil!). After having many pets with different personalities and quirks, I realize how important individualized attention is for pets. I believe that pets are exceptionally beneficial for the mental and physical health of their humans and give us back much more than we give them!
