MORE ABOUT ME
I always had a love of animals, grew up in Africa, New Zealand and Australia, and spent many hours helping others with their dogs as a hobby. After leaving the 9-5 life as a lawyer, I was seeking a new direction in small business. Working with animals immediately appealed - who wouldn't love working with people AND animals? ... Ok maybe not everyone!
A meme comes to mind: "I had my DNA analyzed. It came back with four main components. Cheese, Chocolate, Coffee, and Crazy."
In my "other" job, I am the ACT representative for Allbiz Deal Room: a relatively new startup founded by Mark Bouris and Matt Holland, giving SME owners a better option when it comes to selling their business. A virtual deal room which makes things easier for business owners to get their deal closed? I'm in.
Re my dogs. I am the proud mum of my much loved fur babies; a Wire-haired Vizsla called Storm, and a Greyhound called Breezy. They are both chalk and cheese but seem to balance each other somehow.
I have completed more than my fair share of hours of doggie consults, and successfully completed the only nationally accredited dog training and behaviour course in Australia with the National Dog Trainers Federation (NDTF). I have also trained intensively in the Canine Leadership System incorporating The Pattern Learning Training Method with ACP (Reward Based Dog Handling Techniques).
When I'm not training owners to train their dogs, I'm out and about with my family and the doggos enjoying the great outdoors.
