Lucid K9’s founder and trainer. The love of dogs started at a young age walking gravel roads with my grandfather’s 7 dogs in the Blue Mountains of Virginia. Animals continued to be an inspiration and led me into a career of veterinary medicine as a Licensed Veterinary Technician. As my experience in the field grew, I became a go to tech for the aggressive and hard to handle dogs. With 7 years of experience in vet med I observed thousands of dogs and their behavior. in 2016 I began working with a local trainer with my newly adopted out of control lab and dog reactive mutt. My love for training lead to my trainer quickly becaming my mentor. With the desire to strengthen the relationship with my own dogs and to further understand why behavior was such a large issue for the everyday dog owner, I committed countless hours to training, mentorship and Continued Education courses.
