I'm a passionate dog person with
a Masters in International Education and Communication from Teachers College at Columbia University, plus Continuing Education in Animal Communication and Energy Healing. I live with 3 dogs and finding myself chatting with an animal every day, wherever I am in the world!
I've also won dog training awards and certifications throughout my life and spent years teaching and training children and adults in Active Listening and accessing intuitive abilities.
My unique training, experience and passion makes me uniquely qualified to support families, professionals and volunteers throughout the world seeking to understand their dogs and live in greater harmony in and out of the dog house.
At age 5 a kindergarten classmate brought a standard grey poodle to show and tell.
I instinctively knew what the dog was thinking and went home pleading for a dog. When I finally adopted a puppy, animal communication came easily as my dog and I instinctively trusted and understood each other.
I started dog training and we won the blue ribbon in dog obedience, competing against
adults at the county fair. As an adult I earned the Pet Partner's Animal Assisted Therapy Team certification and worked with my adopted Black Labrador Sam in hospitals and a traumatic injury rehab center with teams of physicians, therapists and patients. Sam and I had an easy understanding and were even included in a PBS special about therapy dogs.
Years of fostering plus working as a dog and adoptive home evaluator further contributes to my intuitive understanding of what dogs are thinking and feeling, assessing their situations at home, while working, and in needing to thrive.
I find my best lessons in talking with the dogs come from the many animals willing to trust me and share their thoughts, feelings and experiences. These animal communication chat sessions, whether private chat sessions or shared via Podcast or YouTube, help me maintain my understanding of the different ways people receive messages from animals, hones my abilities to access, share and interpret messages I receive from animals, and allows me to expand my work supporting both animal and human clients, and maybe even you and your pet!
