I graduated with a diploma in Recreation and Leisure Services but my passion for animals lead me to continue my studies under renowned dog trainer/behaviour therapist Norma Jeanne Laurette. I have worked and trained dogs for over 18 years.
I have always loved animals. My childhood was spent with dogs and cats around the house and every summer I spent at Hoskin Stables grooming and riding horses. I'm currently training my puppy Cedar.
For many winters, I worked in South River, Ontario, as a dog sled guide with Chocpaw Expeditions. This is where I realized that I loved handling and working with dogs. From there I took courses in dog training and behaviour, working at multiple doggy daycare and training facilities. For the past 9 years I have worked as a vet assistant/receptionist at the Pet Hospital on Main in Uxbridge.
Presently I work full time as a Mom and dog walker. I also work part-time as a professor in the Animal Care Program at Durham College teaching Animal Handling and Restraint..
I am a firm believer in continuing education, and attend as many seminars and conferences to keep myself as up to date and as current as possible.
I am currently Pet First Aid certified with Walks n Wags.
