Bio: Business Owner. Dog Trainer. Pitbull Mom. Half of a Dynamic Duo. Speaker. Vegan. Board Member. Mentor. Positive Thinker. Inspired to Make Change. I own two dog training facilities, as well as an academy for dog trainers. I have learned many lessons being a young female entrepreneur with a unique business. Most people did not take me seriously ('Awww, you play with puppies!') and no one wanted to help fund a service based business. So, I have put a lot of my own blood, sweat and tears into building this amazing company, Dogma, that I am proud to be the founder of. Dog training and dogs have taught me so many lessons in my personal and professional life; improving communication, living in the moment, managing people, and being a leader. I've struggled to make ends meet, lost friends, went through a divorce, battled with CRA, and wouldn't change it for the world! I've also met so many new and wonderful people, lead an amazing team of vibrant young women, am making an impact on dogs in my community and found my soul mate. Being an entrepreneur is only for the crazy and passionate ones. Through gaining success I have learned how it creates many people who want to bring you down. I hope this blog will help build a community of support. It can be lonely at the top, and it doesn't have to be.
