I started out working with animals like a lot of my colleagues, cleaning dirty kennels and shadowing staff in busy vet practices. It wasn’t long before I realized that this was my passion. Over the next 17 years I spent time in private practices, daycare facilities, research at university level, shelters, and then decided to start my own business. In the last 5 years or so, I shifted my focus to behavior and became adamant about providing humane resources in the area I live. Continuing education is important to me so I am committed to staying on top of the newest information out there when it comes to behavior science. I do not utilize any force, correction, or punishment in my handling or training methods. Most recently, I worked as a behavior consultant at a local animal shelter providing enrichment and training plans to the animals on a daily basis. I believe in a positive learning experience for all animals and their humans alike.
