I began my animal care career after making the decision to follow my heart in 1997. I am so happy to have made that decision! In 2000 I became involved in San Diego's rescue community while working as an Adoption Counselor for FOCAS (Friends of County Animal Shelters) at the Dept. of Animal Services. Along with working at one of the first doggy daycares in Downtown San Diego, I acquired extensive knowledge of canine/feline behavior which I continue to expand and use daily. I find it rewarding and fun to put that knowledge and positive-training techniques to good use by working with my client's pets!
