I have been competing in conformation shows since I was 12yrs. old as a junior handler and also in 4-H, becoming a professional handler at the age of 16.

I have been handling dogs for 30 plus years and have handled a multitude of different breeds, finishing several champions and grand champions. I have competed several times at the Westminster dog show in NYC and the Royal Canin dog show in Florida. I’m very knowledgeable of show ring procedures, rules and breed standards, movement, stacking, and presentation of different breeds, which has afforded me several judging assignments.

I’m a breeder of Irish setters and a long-time owner and lover of the breed. I have also done obedience work completing some CD and CDX titles and tracking work as well.

I would love to help you and your dog to stand out and show your best in the show ring!
