I currently reside in Montana where I am raising two children, four dogs, three budgies, and one gigantic 12 year old gold fish.
Everything I have done so far has lead up to what I am doing now, and I love it.
I am inspired by my work and life with my family, and if there is one thing that drives me it’s inspiration. Everything that surrounds me is creative and constantly changing, sometimes a bit too much, but it’s all good really.
I am the Founding Owner and Head Trainer at Paws & People, an integrative dog training business, established in 2003. But this is very much a family business, and this has been a journey together.
Working in a hog barn with puppies one day, and flying to New York and appearing on Martha Stewart the next. We recently opened our Dog Gym, and it is another amazing adventure that I am very proud of. I am fortunate to now travel all over the world giving workshops and lectures on all things dog.
In 2011 I started The Scent Project, bringing the goodness of the garden to our clients, both furry and non furry alike. And it smells ridiculously good! This little company surprises me daily and grows little by little, just like a garden. From Mother Nature, through my hands, to you and your dog… this sums it up pretty well!
My garden is where I have thrown out my taproot. It’s my grounding place, my dirt in the finger nails place, my take a deep breath place, my time to think space. I’m grateful that my children and dogs love it as much as I do.
And then it all comes together in the kitchen. For all of us.
