I've lived in Jacksonville Beach most of my life. I'm a Duncan U. Fletcher graduate. I have 4 grown children. My husband and I live on a sailboat with our 2 small dogs and love every minute of it. I spent my professional life working as a nurse. After 25 years I started a home based dog walking/sitting business, that has flourished over the last 5 years, My kids, husband, parents and close friends have helped me. We've made some wonderful friendships. It feels like helping family. My years in nursing make this an easy transition for me. I want to help the ones that can't speak for themselves. I've seen positive changes in the dogs we work with because of our focus on the importance on socialization.I belong to the largest Association of Professional Dog Trainers in the World. APDT. I follow their Code of Professional Ethics. Currently I hold a certificate in Dog Training Knowledge (CDTK) from CATCH Dog Training. I am a happily self-proclaimed Animal advocate.
