About Natural Pet Wellness
Animals have been part of my entire life. As a kid, I would sneak in the neighborhood cat in through my window, pet any dog I came across, and walk dogs for neighbors. Not much has changed as an adult! I still pet every dog I see, all my animals live in the house and I talk to strangers about my love of all animals. As I got older, I worked at shelters, vet clinics and went to school specifically to learn more about animals. I worked with many animal organizations, pet sit for friends and family and even took in a pack of alpacas.
Despite working in retail and marketing, I kept finding my way back to working with animals. What started as a "hobby" to learn about holistic ways to help my own pets has become a career to help other people and their pets live their fullest life. I trained in essential oil therapy through Young Living Animal Oil classes, I trained in energy work through HTA (Healing Touch for Animals) to help my aging dogs and I am certified Reiki Master. I've taken coursework in CPR and First Aid specifically for animals. I realized these techniques can help all animals I meet, not just my own pets. I truly have a passion for animals and treat them with respect and love.
As I worked more with people's pets, I found the people benefiting from energy work and from having happy pets-by helping the hoomans, the people and their pets were able to have a greater bond and happier life.
I look forward to meeting and caring for you and your furry family member!
"We have used Natural Pet Wellness on a few occasions and they have been wonderful. They are incredibly kind, knowledgeable, professional, personable, and the dogs and cat love Cristi! She takes great care of our animals while we are out of town and leaves our house spotless. We can't imagine using anyone other than Natural Pet Wellness!"
"Cannot say enough good things about Cristi! She is so great and patient with our dog, who has some behavioral issues. We have used her for two separate week-long trips and had Cristi stay at our house. Not only did she take amazing care of our dog, but also watered plants (and I’m pretty sure the house was cleaner than how we left it). She is very responsive, and sent me tons of pictures of Betty (at my request) and I truly had no anxiety about leaving her because Cristi is so great. You won’t find someone better!"
"Cristi recently took care of our home and Havanese pup (9 yrs old!), Ollie, for several days while we were out of town. She did a wonderful job! Her love of animals is obvious. Beside taking Ollie for walks and playing with him she sent us daily updates with pictures to let us know that all was going well! We returned home to a happy pup and immaculately clean house! Who could ask for anything more??? We recommend her highly—she will take good care of both you and your pets!!"

"I have received reiki healing from Cristi several times, both in person and in distance. She is very intuitive and was able to sense energy blockages (and the cause of those blockages) in my sessions. She was spot on with how I was feeling when she did my chakra analysis before a distance session. She has a very calm, comfortable, happy presence. I really enjoyed the addition of essential oils in my in person reiki sessions, it really added to the session! She also followed up after our session with work I could do on my energy centers myself. I highly recommend Cristi for reiki healing!"
"Cristi is by far the best dog sitter we have ever had! She is polite, professional and an overall rockstar. Our poor shelter pup is terrified of everyone and she snuggles right up to Cristi when she walks though the door. Not only that, but we get updated pictures of our sweet girl while were away and we can see that she cares for our pup as if it were her own. Cant recommend her enough!"
