I have always had a bleeding heart for animals. As a little girl, I remember riding in my grandfather’s truck one day when a bird flew into the front of his truck. When we arrived at my house, I was shocked to find the bird alive stuck in the grill of the truck. After carefully removing the bird from the grill, with tears streaming down my face, I put it in a towel lined box wanting to somehow care for the poor little thing. I asked if we could take it to a veterinarian, but it died shortly thereafter.
Knowing that I wanted to someday work with animals, my lifelong animal career path began with a college degree in biology. After college, I worked at the Pittsburgh Zoo for a year with animals, like white tailed deer, kangaroos, and sea lions. I left the zoo for my dream job as an Animal Trainer at SeaWorld of Ohio. There, I worked with killer whales, dolphins, sea lions, walruses, otters, and penguins. After several years, I left SeaWorld to move back home to marry my husband, David. At that point, I was unsure of what I was going to do next since there were no dolphins or killer whales in the vicinity. I decided I would like to follow my bleeding heart saving dogs and cats. So, I got a job at a local veterinarian’s office working as a tech for the 5 years prior to starting my own pet care business.
I decided to become a pet First Aid & CPR instructor because I believe it is the responsibility of pet care professionals to do everything they can to protect the pets entrusted to them. I chose to become a PetTech Instructor because they offer the most comprehensive pet First Aid & CPR program available. Not only will I be training all of my employees in Pet CPR, First Aid, and Care, but I also plan to offer this knowledge to my clients, friends & family, and my community. Additionally, I have 6 other reasons I decided to become a Pet Tech instructor...
1. Jake, my 12 year old yellow lab.
2. Matilda, a.k.a. Tilly, my 6 year old St. Bernard.
3. Simi, my 7 year old cat who is capable of chasing my St. Bernard from one end of the house to the other!
4. & 5. Journey and Tumbleweed, Ruffin’ Around’s resident kitties that found us last summer.
And the sixth reason is that little bird...even though I know birds are not part of the curriculum. 🙂
