My Life With Dogs (PDX) is a blog about health and wellness (with an emphasis on alternative techniques), enrichment ideas for dogs and outdoor tales.

I live with three hounds in the Pacific Northwest – two Doxies and a Beagle/Basset Hound mix. As a Certified Veterinary Technician, I use my knowledge to inform stories on health and wellness topics. I’m not practicing but continuing my education through workshops is a high priority. Readers can expect product reviews, updates on my senior dog and how living with a reactive dog changed my life.

As the founder of My Life with Dogs PDX, I also contribute to animal related publications including Animal Wellness and Spot Magazine. I’m a PR practitioner as well and drive content for a number of animal clients. I sit on the board of Indigo Rescue, an animal rescue organization in Portland, Oregon.
