Certifications through Angel's Animals: Certified Animal Neuro-myofascial Release Technique - both large and small animals
When did you decide that you wanted to work with animals? As a child growing up, I had lots of animals/pets. It seemed a natural progression for me to continue taking care of their needs.
What animal influenced you the most growing up? My family bread Champion shih-tzu in the early 1970’s when they were first being imported into the United States.
What animals do you currently own? 2 female miniature pinchers. Lexi and Haley. Lexis was a 6 year old Rescue when I was blessed to be her mommy. Haley has been a part of my family since she was 8 weeks old.
What makes your animal bodywork practice stand out? We are unique in that we see animals and humans in our office. There are not many places you can get adjusted along with your pet. Although we can make house calls.
What message would you like to share with perspective clients? It is important to create a holistic approach to health early.
What message would you like to share with others who are thinking about pursing a career in animal bodywork? It is a very rewarding career choice. If you love animals, you will love it when they begin to feel better. Each one has a unique way of expressing their appreciation for taking care of them. Whether it is a kiss or a snuggle, they will thank you. That is the best part of my day.
