I've been the victim of emotional abuse for most of my life and many failed relationships, as a result. I enjoy reading fantasy books, but some of my favorite nonfiction topics are about personality types, history, trauma, and animals. If I wasn't so deep into my current career, I'd pursue dog training in a way that could contribute to my community. I have always admired canine advocates, service dogs, and their handlers. I graduated from a canine obedience training program at Animal Behavior College in 2008 and have continued to apply that knowledge to many species of pets ever since.
