Mental Health |

Diagnosed with depression at the early age of 9-years old, mental health has been something I’ve had to take very seriously. When I was met with the opportunity to become the on-camera Digital Host for the mental health education company,, I knew it would be a perfect fit.

Interviewing the world’s best mental health experts and most sought-after mental health survivors is an honor and a privilege. These impactful series help millions understand mental health conditions and possible next steps.  One way I was able to thrive, despite my constant struggle with depressive thoughts and symptoms, was to become an influential animal advocate and behaviourist.

Dog Trainer & Behaviorist Consultant

For three years, I owned and operated my dog training company, Pinky’s Dog Training: We Make ‘Sit’ Happen. By cultivating a team of talented canine trainers, we were able to help hundreds of families establish lasting relationships with their pets. At the end of the day, we never really trained the dog — we trained the people! Currently, I am a canine behavior consultant for Tully’s Training, a premier dog training company in Los Angeles.

I also offer online resources for dog owners, such as; Street Safe Dog: Keeping Your Dog Out Of The Street.

I have been an on-camera host, animal expert, and dog trainer consultant for Hallmark Channel, Home & Family, Fusion, NPR, Huffington Post Live, Nat Geo Wild, and a variety of local news stations and outlets.
