I have always had a great passion for animals. Growing up on a small farm, I was always bringing home stray dogs, cats, and even a horse. My life wouldn't be whole without my fur babies. I have enjoyed the benefits of massage myself and always tried to share that with my pets without any formal training. Finally in 2014 after an unplanned life long career change I decided it was time to do something that I had always wanted to do; become a Certified Canine Massage Therapist.
I received my certification from Brandenburg Massage Therapy in Martin Ferry, OH. I have saw the benefits and enjoyment this has brought to my own K9 kids and decided to share that with others by opening Caring Paws Therapies LLC. My greatest enjoyment is when I'm with animals. I completed my Reiki level 1 training in 2016. I was so impressed with the practice that I wanted to learn more so I completed level 1 again as well as added level 2 with Becky Brandenburg in the spring of 2017 and completed my Reiki Master level in the fall of 2017.
If you’re like me, you have an incredible connection with your dogs. You want to make sure they’re feeling and performing to their best. We all know the benefits of a good massage so why shouldn't our beloved loyal companions enjoy those same benefits. That’s why I started Caring Paws K9 Therapies LLC, to give our dogs the benefits and enjoyment a massage can provide.
As President of the Doberman Pinscher Club of Columbus OH, I'm able to learn and support the breed I love. I have been a volunteer for a local human society. My dog Mina is a certified therapy dog with Therapy Dog International. I enjoy training and showing Mina in AKC Rally, Obedience, Lure Coursing, FAST Coursing and Barn Hunt.
