I grew up on a farm and have been surrounded by animals my entire life. At a young age, I took on the role of caretaker to the farm animals and often times nurse to sick animals on the farm. Whether it was a sick chicken, calf, crippled duck or baby bird that fell out of the nest, I always tried to nurse them back to health. Sometimes it was successful and other times not, but it was not for lack of effort. My passion as a young girl was horses and I began showing at the age of eight and horses were a big part of my life into my early adulthood. A had a very special bond with my first horse, Penny. She was born on our farm when I was 5 years old and we were together until she passed at age 25. About 15 years ago, I discovered the wonderful world of dog sports and my life has not been the same since.
Over the years, I have become a student of good nutrition and natural supportive healthcare for my entire family (human and canine). I believe that there are many ways that natural remedies in conjunction with traditional veterinary medicine can enhance the quality of life for our animal companions as well as enhance the body’s ability to heal. I have seen first hand the benefit of canine massage and natural therapies with my own dogs over the years and am excited to pass this benefit along to my clients.
