I have been involved with training and working with dogs most of my life, in dog sports, pet therapy, teaching classes, and competing. I have four dogs, two Toy Poodles, Lacey (CFF Level III) and Aidan (CFF level III), a blind Peruvian Hairless Dog, Coyllur and an All -American mix, Doodle (CFF Level IIB) who came to me as astray and stayed! I teach all levels of Federation DogWork classes weekly and judge all levels for Federation titling events. I have been a member of the Federation since 2002 and previously served on the Board as Judging Chair.
I am a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with a BS in Occupational Therapy. My dogs and I visit regularly in hospitals, nursing homes, reading programs, psychiatric unit and hospice.
