I was born and raised in Chicago where I attended college at Benedictine University. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice and a minor in Sociology. I moved to Denver about 2 years ago to pursue a career in law enforcement. I quickly realized this is not the route I wanted to take and found a deeper passion for working with dogs. I got my first dog before I moved to Denver and my life has never been the same since. My German Shepherd, Dakota, has taught me so much about myself as a handler and the passion I have for training dogs. I attended Tarheel Canine School for Dog Trainers where I obtained my certification from their Master Obedience Course. I am currently participating in protection sports with my other German Shepherds and have big goals of opening my own German Shepherd kennel someday. I enjoy furthering my education by attending dog training seminars, and mentoring other trainers. I am so proud to be a trainer with KoruK9 and absolutely love what I do everyday!
