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 love to learn as much as I love to teach. Not only do I learn from both the humans and other animals I work with, it's important to stay up-to-date on the latest scientific research as a training and behavior professional. I enjoy taking courses, attending conferences and webinars, listening to podcasts and reading. Sample my commitment to continuing my education by checking out my credentials and memberships below!
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.
