I've always said if I could work with animals I'd be happy with what I'm doing in life, so I became a Certified Advanced Canine Trainer through Animal Behavior Institute and have had a career training and caring for animals for three years now from taking care of rescue animals in the shelter to teaching training classes! I've just always had a passion for helping or reaching out to people but as for anyone animals hit that spot a little harder; I love that this field of work allows me to strengthen the bond between owner and pet while providing useful information to make life slightly more manageable! The look on owners' faces when they learn a fun fact about dog life is so fun!
After 22 years in federal law enforcement, I decided to follow a new career path. I have a lifetime of experience with pets Samson (lab/pitbull) and Daisy (German Shepherd) and our cats, Whitey and Ruby, all of whom are rescue animals. I have experience volunteering at three shelters; including caring for anxious and unsocialized dogs. I look forward to meeting and spending time with your pets and making them part of the Fetch! family.

She is also a Certified Master Life Coach specializing in Anxiety & PTSD. Her focus is on helping Service Dog handlers live life and overcome their struggles. Her family pack has included everything from hissing cockroaches to prairie dogs, hamsters to sugar gliders, fresh & saltwater fish, large/small reptiles & birds, and a multitude of cats & dogs. Her current pack consists of 4 cats and 4 dogs; a Standard Poodle, Boxer mix, Powderpuff Chinese Crested, and her Border Collie (part time Service Dog). She understands your pets are your family, no matter the species. “Life is better with 4 paws”
I live my life with the motto “Be the person your dog thinks you are.” Ever since I was a little girl, walking up to horses as tall as skyscrapers with no fear, I have had love and passion for animals. From snakes and frogs to pigs and cattle, ducks, dogs, cats and fish, I have literally cared for them all. I’m a former animal shelter worker and have loads of experience with timid animals. My time at the shelter gave me experience in med administration, especially injections, behavioral setbacks and just the ability to show kindness to a creature that may have never known such a thing existed. I got to get up close with wildlife like a swan and baby raccoons as well as bunnies. So, when I’m not spending time with my pack of 6 dogs, four cats, two rats and a bearded dragon, I’d love to overflow my care and love to yours. Can’t wait to tell your fur baby they’re a good boy.
