Growing up in a family owned dog grooming/retail shop in conjunction with a vet, I don’t recall a time I was not surrounded by furry friends.


My journey over the years has taken me down many paths.  Rescuing lost, broken dogs led me to my passion for healing ailing and elder pups.  It is so rewarding taking a broken or sick pup and making them whole again.


Spending many years working for top designers in the fashion world, both in wholesale and retail, I was thrilled with the opportunity to open up a dog store where I could combine my two passions.   This led to several jobs as a consult for various elements in pet care, animal behavior, product development, merchandising & retail, as well as writing for several trade magazines including Pet Product News International, as well as for pet industry companies.  Currently I am working on my first book.  


My training in holistic work has been extensive.  I have been blessed to be trained by some of the top professionals in their field, both for animals and human’s care!    


My true teachers are my dogs! My mentors/teachers include Joan Ranquet Animal Communicator, Carol Gurney Animal Communicator, Doreen Virtue Angel Healer & Clairvoyant, Radleigh Valentine Angel Intuitive, Melissa Shelton creator of AnimalEO, Tallgrass Acupressure Institute and many more.  My studies include:
