A little bit about me 


I was born in England, I grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, mice & horses. My mom taught me about mother nature and how we should co-exist with her & respect all creatures including the scary ones, like spiders & snakes. 

In 2001, I quit my bank job, sold everything and set off to travel America, but that's a whole other story.


These days you'll find me running around rural Texas in my pink wellies, with my menagerie of rescue animals.  Home is a 13 acre property that is kept dog friendly by my wonderful partner Thomas.  


I am a member of Association of Professional Dog Trainers and I help humans understand and co-exist with their dogs.   I love my life and I'm passionate about what I do. We are all dealing with different challenges on a daily basis.  Every person's situation is unique and so are the dogs that we share our lives with.


Everyday my dogs teach me something, I'm always studying something new related to dogs.  I am working towards my CPDT-KA.  I've completed my CPR & First Aid for pets with PetTech.  In September 2016 I  added Young Living Essential Oils to my toolkit for myself and my dogs.  


That's me in a nutshell, I can't wait to meet you and your dog.
