I grew up with a dad that loved working his personal bird dogs and a mom that loves animals, so I was curious when it came to animals. I would work with them and learn new things in the dog training world, It wasn’t until a debilitating car accident in 2011 that I was put into the professional dog world. I was in a wheelchair with shattered feet, fractures in my legs and fractures in my spine and the inability to walk, but I was not going to let that stop me.
I defied the odds with the help of physical therapy and the moment I could walk, I went to school to become certified in a Canine Master Trainer Program. Since 2011, I have had 8 reconstructive surgeries on my legs, and for my 7th surgery I caught a virus that started to shut down my organs and I was in a coma for 2 weeks. Waking up from a coma has given me understanding of how dogs feel when waking up in shelters, so I donate time to different shelters to help dogs with aggressive tendencies.
My past has gotten me where I am and it is a blessing, it may have been rough, but that is what makes the end goal worth it.
