Jude is originally a Jersey girl, UVA alum and a lifelong animal lover. After graduating from college, she moved back to New Jersey to pursue a career in finance in New York City. After long days of crunching numbers and long commutes, Jude realized she missed the South,leading to a move to northern Virginia. In 2010, after working for a local dog walking and volunteering at Arlington Animal Shelter, Jude took a leap of faith and started a dog walking company. The mission with Metropawlitan Petsitters is to provide worry-free reliable petcare that pet owners can depend on.
