Being a dog trainer is something I have wanted to do my entire life. From an early age I discovered I had a natural, easy relationship with animals. I started to show dogs at the age of ten and embraced the dog show scene. I already knew a lot about service dogs because my blind Grandmother has had a seeing eye dog. When I was seventeen my parents agreed to let me study dog training in St. Louis where I realized that training was not just a vocation, but a passion that I had to follow.
