I bring to Coexistence Consulting experience from working in many aspects of the pet industry. This experience coupled with my education in anthrozoology, applied animal behavior and training has inspired my mission for Coexistence Consulting today.
I’m a passionate trainer and educator. I love to teach humans about other animals and how we can have even better relationships and interactions with them. I believe in the power of humane education and am immensely proud of Coexistence Consulting's partnership with the Humane Education Coalition.
Staying up-to-date on the latest scientific research is critical in my field, and I participate in continuing education as much as possible. I’m currently enrolled in The Academy for Dog Trainers, which is described as "one of the most rigorous, advanced programs in dog behavior and training in the world." I’m also dedicated to helping pets in rescues and shelters and have done so for over 10 years. I’ve volunteered with several organizations, such as the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and Summit Dog Rescue. I now offer consulting, education and trainingsupport to shelters, rescues and adopters.
In addition to my passion for pets and their humans, I’m an avid outdoor enthusiast and hope to inspire humans to better coexist with wildlife and nature.
