When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? I had always been very connected to dogs as a child and they were always part of my life, however it wasn’t until one of my own dogs developed Degenerative Myopathy and no none could help her did I start training.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? My family always had dogs and I had a pony as a teenager however dogs have been the main influencer in my life.
What animals do you currently own? I’m currently the Guardian of 2 dogs, one retired show Great Dane and one retired Agility Labrador cross.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? Being multi-modality so I can address the dog in front of me rather than being limited. In addition, I have been involved in a lot of the activities and sports my clients have so that also gives me an understanding of what challenges they face and what aspects are priorities for them.
What message would you like to share with perspective clients? Never stop learning. The more tools we add to our toolboxes, the more we can help animals.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursing a career in animal bodywork? Just do it, starting is the hardest thing to do for someone just starting out but this school has outstanding support who want to see you succeed.
