About Me

For as long as I can remember, I have always loved being around animals. Growing up with dogs, ponies, goats, ducks, birds, and numerous other farm animals had a big influence on who I am today. They have been a huge part of my life.

My journey into professional pet care came about from my desire to be able to help my own dogs with illness and injuries that they themselves were experiencing. I embarked upon a journey to seek out further knowledge and gain formal accreditation. I went on to study Canine Myofunctional Therapy and Canine Behaviour and Training and have since continued to advance my knowledge and skills through ongoing professional development.

There is so much we can do to help our dogs live full, happy, and healthy lives. I feel honoured that people trust my skills to treat their pets from the senior stage of life, to post-surgery rehabilitation and to proactively providing support and therapy to optimise their dog’s performance, and to prevent potential injuries.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time working with and caring for my own dogs. We train and complete in Three Sheep Trialling, with some success. More importantly it’s a sport that we all share and enjoy.
