Lives in: Eugene Oregon in the United States. I’ve lived in Eugene, Oregon for 17 years. It took a long time to adjust to all the rain in the Pacific Northwest after moving from sunny Santa Barbara, California. But now I love the beauty and the slower pace of Oregon!

Job: Animal Communicator – I connect intuitively with animals to assist people in better understanding the thoughts, feelings and viewpoints of their beloved pets. After taking classes for several years and then a specialized training program, I opened my business as a professional animal communicator 12 years ago. During one class, I ‘heard’ a dog express with great enthusiasm that meatballs were her favorite food. This turned out to be very true, and I knew from that moment my purpose is to assist people in better understanding their beloved animals. My work has evolved over the years into focusing on the relationships between animals and their humans. Once a person knows their cat has been peeing outside the litter box because she doesn’t like the chemical smell of that particular litter…or that a dog is aggressive because he’s afraid and self-protective…or that a horse has become stubborn because he is in pain…then the person and animal can work together to find resolutions to the issue. It is wonderful to see their mutual love and respect deepen after a session in animal communication!
Tell us your first three jobs (ever!): My first job was filing papers in my dad’s law office. Then I worked as a recreation assistant for an after-school program in elementary school. My third job was as an, elementary school teacher. I taught grades 3, 5 and 6 at different times. Third graders were my favorite, they were so open-hearted! The experience led me to return to school for a Masters degree and then serve as a school counselor for 10 years. I worked with children aged 5 to 12, assisting them with issues such as coping with the divorce of parents, improving their self-esteem, or developing social skills to get along better with others. It was very rewarding!
