I have always had a love of dogs and have grown up with them my whole life. They are such wonderful companions and I couldn't imagine life without them around me!
Before starting at Smart Pups, I worked at Guide Dogs Queensland for 3 years in the Breeding Centre working with their gorgeous puppies from birth through to adulthood. While working there, I gained my Certificate III in Companion Animal Services.
Prior to this, I completed my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and taught in Early Childhood Services for 6 years. I loved working with children, but my desire to work with dogs in an industry devoted to helping others took over and led me to my career today. I am so grateful to be a part of an organisation that plays such an important role in improving the lives of children with special needs and their families."
