She visited hospitals and nursing homes with her therapy dog, Ruby, and has competed in Obedience, Agility, water work, and lure coursing.  She is a perennial student of dog behavior, health and nutrition and especially loves dog training.  She currently enjoys playing Agility and Rally with her talented pug teammate, Opal.   Her phenomenal husband Sean is along for all the agility rides!
