I have been an animal lover, pet owner, and fan of all things underdog for as long as I can remember. I was born and raised in Minneapolis but moved to the Valley of the Sun in 1996. I attended Arizona State University, where I graduated with a degree in Communication. I got a sales job right out of college and continued to grow and excel in the sales arena well into my thirties. Although my sales career paid the bills, my heart still belonged to the animals. So, in my spare time, I became involved in Animal Rescue as a volunteer, foster parent, and dog trainer.
About twelve years ago, I decided that I wanted to hang up the business suits and trade them in for sneakers and clothes covered in dog hair to follow my dream of working with animals. I was lucky enough to be able to figure out a way to combine my passion for animals with helping people in one giant leap! I initially started a dog walking business as a one woman show, which evolved into helping families with their behaviorally challenged dogs. It has been the most incredible ride and I am beyond grateful to be able to do what I love every day, surrounded by the most amazing clients. I look forward to adding you & your companions to the Unleash the Peace family!
