Hello pet parents! I may be the newest addition to the All American Dog Training Academy family, but I have been a professional animal trainer for the past 16+ years of my career. I have always been passionate about animals which brought me to riding and training horses when I was growing up and after graduating with a degree in psychology , focusing on animal studies and behaviors.

I began my professional career working with marine mammals.  With 6 years of experience learning and practicing positive reinforcement techniques with seals, sea lions and dolphins, I transitioned to a private company working with a variety of land mammals, which focused mainly on rescued dogs and cats.  I have spent the past 16+ years shaping my training style and techniques and am happy to be bringing that experience to All American Dog Training Academy. I look forward to meeting you and your furry companions!
