Debbie lives in the Baltimore area with her husband and their four pets (two dogs, a cat, and a rabbit). She has worked professionally with animals throughout the past 15 years, from shelters to kennels, and has a vast variety of pet care experience.
In 2009, after graduating with honors from Animal Behavior College as a Certified Dog Trainer, she took on an apprenticeship with one of the country’s most reputable positive trainers. It was then that she began teaching private and group lessons, addressing behavioral issues as well as teaching basic foundation skills.
She is a Full Member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), a certified AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Evaluator, and certified by the Red Cross in Dog and Cat First Aid.
In 2008, Debbie graduated from UMBC with a Bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts with a Concentration in Music. She is often dabbling in something artsy, and working on new items for Tattered Petals, her fabric flower shop. When she is not teaching dogs how to jump through hoops, she can sometimes be found jumping through hoops herself! She is an avid hula hooper and owner of BeeLeaves Hula Hoops.
