Having been involved with animals all my life starting with growing up in a veterinary practice from the time that I could walk, too part-time work throughout high school as receptionist and nurse. Also working in a pet shop and grooming parlour on weekends. I would later go on to own and run my own pet shop and grooming parlour.
I started showing dogs in high school handling German Shepherds, Jack Russell Terriers, French Poodles and Parson Russell Terriers proudly having produced a number of best in show dogs and countless breed champions. More recently Border Collies have stolen my heart first in showing and working leading to my involvement with Border Collie Rescue.
My experience with train dogs has varied from Wilderness search and rescue, obedience, agility, dog jumping, personal protection, tracking, urban man trailing, explosive and narcotic detection work.
In January 1994 I took over La Brie Kennels and Cattery.
