Jenna Brinson Jimeno
Jenna has worked for Mission Valley Pet Sitting for over a year now! Originally from Mississippi, she was raised with animals her entire life. She truly believes animals bring people joy and are our angels on earth. When Jenna was a flight attendant for 5 years, she would make sure to visit local animal rescue centers in the different cities she would fly to, and ask if she could volunteer. She believes in doing what makes you happy in life and being able to care for animals day in and day out makes her feel like she has hit the jackpot! Lucy, her little Frenchie, is the light of her life. And congratulations to Jenna. She just received her Certification as a Professional Pet Sitter through Pet Sitters International.
