Meet our Head Trainer

I've loved animals for as long as I can remember. Mammals, insects, birds, amphibians or reptiles, compassion for all creatures is in my DNA.

But I also live with a higher calling to serve others, in any way I can, no matter how big or small. Which is why I'm personally invested in the success of every client and their companion.

My experience with dogs and humans across industries, parts of the world and seasons of my life have led me to create Bark of Duty. By integrating my passion for working with animals with my purpose to serve the community, Bark of Duty can make a positive impact on the world with potentially transformative societal and environmental improvements.


I can’t wait to work with you and your dog to be the best you can be, together.
