I have always had a love for everything related to dogs and during high school I began to look into a career with them. Of course veterinarian was an obvious choice as that's what most animal lovers dream of doing but after working in a vet clinic I knew it wasn't right for me. I wanted to work with how dogs think and I wanted to help educate people from the start, right when they bring home their brand new puppy. So I found a dog trainers academy and after high school I attended Starmark Academy (previously Triple Crown) - School for Dog Trainers where I received education in everything from how dogs learn to training basic and advanced obedience, search and rescue, agility, service dogs and more. I earned my Canine Training and Behavior Specialist Certification through their program in June 2008.
