I was a certified riding coach for over 10 years and I look forward to bringing my athlete and partner team building skills to my agility teaching.

I have always been involved with animals from an early age. First riding and showing horses both in the western ring and show jumping ring followed by becoming a certified show jumping coach. My love for agility started with my Mini Aussie/Sheltie cross and taking lessons at a local club. While I fell in love with agillity my dog did not. I then ran my little Yorkie partner and while he loved it, his conformation did not allow for a long career and he has retired to being a cuddle bug. My current partner is my Sheltie Bella who loves the sport as much as I do.
I have competed in the provincial, national and international level representing Canada on two world teams. My career highlights include:
2010 - AAC Master Judge
2014 - UKI Judge
2015 - National Steeplechase Champion 16" division
2016 - European Open - Subaru Agility Team Canada member
2016 - World Agility Championship Spain - Team Canada member
2017 - Participant in the Global Judges Program
