Since self-publishing a pet magazine at the age of 10 (using a friend's photocopy machine to fulfill the circulation of two -- my father and my neighbor), I always thought that I'd pursue a career in either the writing or animal fields. While my current job doesn't fall under either category, I've been able to combine the two through freelance writing.

My diverse experience has given me a unique perspective as a writer. As an animal lover I've done behavioral research at the Bronx Zoo's World of Birds, competed with my college's equestrian team and started an animal shelter volunteer group. As a writer I've created sponsorship materials for the now defunct WUSA professionall womans soccer team, the New York Power, and write manager development program materials at my current job, the training/development department of a New York-based investment firm.

These days, most of my free time is spent training and competing in rally obedience and agility with my dog, Nemo. I've been fortunate to share my passion by writing for publications like BARK, Clean Run, and DogSport Magazine. I've also been brought on by BARK to be a regular blogger on their web site,
