K9 Caring Angels Therapy Dog Evaluator & Volunteer Coordinator

For 28 years I was a head high school cheerleading coach. When I left coaching, my journey with Sit Means Sit began. I knew when I resigned I wanted to start volunteering at hospice facilities to help bring comfort to families in need. At the time of resignation, I had a 7-month-old Great Dane named Trigger. He was wonderful, loving, yet also a very energetic puppy that definitely needed training. I contacted Sit Means Sit to help this soon-to-be big boy learn manners and become obedient.

During his journey, Trigger became a well-trained gentle dog. He obtained his CGC certification and went through the therapy program that Sit Means Sit offered. Trigger and I volunteered at many facilities including Hospice, nursing homes, assisted living, and numerous schools. My love for volunteering and helping others during times of need has led me to become one of the K9 Caring Angels Evaluators for Sit Means Sit.

I am also a full-time, self-employed Nail technician and reside in Wadsworth, Ohio with my husband. We have two grown children, one granddaughter, and another grandchild on the way. I now have a new dog, Sasha. She is a mini Bernedoodle who is now in training for the therapy dog program to continue Trigger’s Legacy.
