What year did you begin serving pets?


How did you hone your craft?

I've worked with cancer patients and their families for 4 years and have supported clients through the grief of human loss. Through my own experience with loss of a family member and a pet, I noticed the difference between the grief experience and studied the human animal bond and attended workshops to add pet grief as a specialization of my practice.

What tip would you give pet parents for working with animals that you've learned as a pro?

Your grief over your pet is nothing to be ashamed of. All of your feelings are real!

What is one thing you want pet parents to know about you? It can be whatev-fur you'd like!

I'm an animal lover to my core.
