When Love Takes the Lead: A Reflection on My Life

Welcome to my blog!


Love is adventures with my husband, our critter kids, music, food, and traveling.


I am a proud animal advocate and created this nonprofit to empower pet parents to do the same. Leash etiquette is at the core of Petiquette, in which we raise awareness that not all dogs like to say hello and that's okay! This is achieved through yard signs, fliers, community education, and especially word of mouth. When we use our voices to stand up for those who can't, we have the power to change the world. Animals DO speak, we just need to learn to listen.

I work remotely for my dream company, Fear Free Pets, My title is Strategic Programs Specialist and I love what I do! My role is to support our Corporate Program Members in our shared goal of providing education to veterinary professionals, shelter workers, boarding and grooming facility staff, pet sitters, veterinary students, and pet parents, on how to alleviate fear, anxiety, and stress in animals.

Living with a chronic illness, domestic violence, and toxic relationships


Living the life of my dreams only happened because I never gave up. Navigating relapsing multiple sclerosis while leaving a previous abusive marriage and toxic workplaces have tested my grit. Staying true to my core values (happiness, balance, and reflection) has guided me through the tough times. Each time I listen to my heart it has led to great things.


My dream family


I live with my wonderful husband, Timmy, and our 2 Labrador retrievers, Bubbles and Sally. Sally is Bubble's biological grandma and they are the best of friends. We also have a bearded dragon, Lanky, and a 120-gallon cichild aquarium.


I'm glad you are here.

The biggest compliment I ever receive is that I have inspired someone to find their happiness. If I can do it, I know you can!
