A junior lawyer has traded her £60,000-a-year salary to communicate with people’s pets – both living and dead.

Nikki Vasconez, 33, was working as a real estate lawyer when she started researching how to “talk” with animals.

Vasconez started out practicing with her family and friends’ pets, but in September 2021, she launched her pet clairvoyant business on social media and “started gaining a steady following and it doesn’t matter.” It didn’t take long for the requests to start pouring in.”

Until 2021, Vasconez, who studied at Florida Atlantic University and Delaware Law School, worked at the Pennsylvania-based law firms HighPoint.

The pet psychic charges clients around £280 for an hour-long session where she will sit in a quiet room, study a photo of the animal and ‘telepathically’ ask a series of questions. She then records her questions and the answers on her phone for the owners.

Vasconez says she is also able to communicate with deceased animals, which she says accounts for about half of her requests.

Vasconez said Subway that her move was confirmed that she had a strawberry time in law.

“I was so miserable in my previous job, working huge hours and just being unhappy but too scared to change. Until it happened.

And the career change appears to be paying off, with Vasconez now earning more than she did in her previous job as a lawyer.

Vasconez is not the first to abandon the legal profession for an unconventional career.
