I’m a passionate trainer and educator. I love teaching all animals, including humans, skills that allow us to better coexist. I'm immensely proud of Coexistence Consulting's partnership with the Humane Education Coalition and strive to incorporate humane education into the work I do. I enjoy teaching webinars and online courses in addition to speaking at conferences. Read more about my educational offerings here.
I love to learn as much as I love to teach. I'm currently pursing my Doctor of Education with a specialization in humane education. I also enjoy taking courses, attending conferences and webinars, listening to podcasts and reading. As an animal professional, I believe it's critically important to continue my education, so that I'm up-to-date on the latest scientific research on animal behavior, welfare, and human-animal relationships.
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.
If you have any questions about me, please don't hesitate to ask. I'm looking forward to learning from each other.
