About Myself

Hello! It's a pleasure to meet you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to explore my site. To tell you a bit about myself, I am a Certified Dog Trainer who has been training and working with dogs since the age of 7 years. I would hop off the school bus  I would then do trick training with neighborhood dogs all evening until it was time to come home for dinner. I did this throughout grade school and middle school, eventually focusing my studies on more complex behavioral issues within the canine species during college while working as a vet tech assistant. Volunteering my services at the local rescues and SPCA is where I  was able to focus on canine behavioral health and rehabilitation for dogs suffering from anxiety and aggression. I realized at this point that I didn't just want to train dogs but that I wanted to help them heal. After earning my bachelor's degree and spending years studying training and behavior consulting by world renowned behavior specialists and trainers  such as Laura VanArendonk Baugh, Karen Pryor, Leslie McDevitt, Pat Miller, and Grisha Stewart I finally opened my own training practice.  I began training only a few dogs in the evening hours after finishing my full-time job as a dog walker. As time went on training became my full-time gig! 

I believe that (just like our dogs) we can always learn more!  I  continue to further my education by attending seminars and conferences relevant to my  field of passion: all things behavior and training. I believe that since science is always progressing so should my education. 

When I am not training with clients I enjoy training with my own dogs, painting, gardening, and of course spending time with my amazing family.
