Growing up riding horses and breeding fish, I always enjoyed being around and working with animals.
After graduating high school in Germany I went on to study physics and mathematics, never truly planning on working in a pet-related field.
After moving to Albuquerque, I got Fusion the Border Collie in 2013. I started to get more and more interested in dog training, clicker training, cognitive and behavioral science.
Fusion soon became a local VIP with his tricks, and he and I were asked to teach others. Slowly but surely I started to branch out in agility, obedience and pet dog training.
My strong science background has helped me to continually strive to seek out better, faster and more efficient training solutions. I believe in on-going education and am committing time daily to improving as a trainer myself.
Dog training is a field that has a lot left to be discovered, and I enjoy being part of the team that is trying to push its boundaries.
