I have over 25 years of professional experience with dogs.

  • Certified Small Animal Acupressure Practitioner (Tallgrass Institute)
  • Certified Vibrational Sound Therapy Practitioner (Vibrational Sound Association)
  • Herbalist (numerous teachers!)
  • Reiki Level II Practitioner
  • Certified in Atlas Balancing for animals
  • Member – American Herbalists Guild
  • Member – Flower Essence Society

I started as a teenager working with show dogs and rarely stopped doing dog work (though I did take time off for graduate school).
I'm currently Lead Educator at Dexter's Deli , as well as co-creator of the community arts group Grrrl Zines A-Go-Go . I also provide healing work for humans with Earth Song Energy.
My experience is long and varied. I initially started The Art of Dog in 2003 as a training service, but switched to my focus on healing work in 2007. If you'd like to learn more about my background and education please do ask. Read my blog for insights into how I've cared for my own dog .
