Tell us more about your job or company and what led you to your career?

I became a dog trainer because of my wonderful high energy yellow Lab, Milo. When Milo came in to my life I realized that, even though I had dogs all my life, I never trained one. I enrolled us in six weeks of basic training, but I soon realized that this training just scratched the surface. The training center was looking for interns, so I interviewed. I was blessed to be accepted. After interning for a few years, I knew I loved dog-training and that I wanted to turn my passion into my career. Thirteen years ago I took in a stray dog. I wanted to give her the best life that I possibly could, however it was Milo that completely changed me and gave me the best life.
