I currently live in New Haven County with my 3 rescue PitBulls who are my entire world. Sadie, Jax, and my Legacy Moose are why I strive to be a voice for the voiceless every day and continue to fight to save as many dogs as possible aside this amazing team.

I have been obsessed with animals and helping them since I was a little girl. I began working in rescue when I was 14 volunteering at our local animal shelter after school. While other kids were out with their friends, I was helping to clean kennels and spending one on one time with dogs that needed love the most. As I got older my passion for training dogs grew. I completed a course to become a certified dog trainer and immediately began zeroing in on dogs that had behavioral issues who had been let down and set up to fail. Too many dogs are given up on due to people just not understanding what their needs are and a lack of proper education from trainers and organizations giving them these dogs. My job is to get these dogs back on track and set them up for a successful future as a Legacy.

I am enrolled to continue my education so I can expand my knowledge and use my tools to continue to keep dogs in their homes, educate adopters, the public, foster families alike, and to save the dogs who were let down by their past humans that are starting over fresh with us. I am proud to stand with Armys Legacy and am excited about what the future holds for this wonderful organization.
