Highlights

  • I completed a certificate with Dogs Naturally Magazine to become a Pet Food Nutrition Specialist in 2020.

Education

Completed a Bachelor's degree at Marietta College in 2009 and have pursued numerous certifications since then.

Experience

After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in English in 2009, I dabbled in freelance writing for a few years until I eventually settled into the pet niche. For the past 5+ years my work has been concentrated in the pet industry, particularly in the subjects of pet care and nutrition.

About

I am the loving caretaker of a dog (Archie), three cats (Bagel, Biscuit, and Munchkin), and an ever-changing menagerie of other pets including guinea pigs and fish. I spend my free time reading, watching movies, and playing rec league sports in my hometown.
