Writer, Editor, Pet Expert


I am a content creator specializing in the pet industry. With nearly 20 years experience in print and digital publishing, I know how to deliver expert information in a fun, polished and professional package.

I have an extensive background in dogs, particularly in purebred dogs, but also in all pet and veterinary topics, including general health and care, nutrition, grooming, behavior, training, veterinary and health topics, rescue and animal welfare, lifestyle, and the human-animal bond. I’m a master researcher and have many expert contacts in the pet world.

I am the ghostwriter of National Geographic’s Complete Guide to Pet Health, Behavior, and Happiness (NatGeo, 2019); the former editor of numerous pet magazines, including Rescue Proud, Lucky Puppy, Dog World, Dogs USA, Natural Dog, Puppies 101, Kittens USA and Cats USA; and the author of the book It’s Raining Cats and Dogs: Making Sense of Animal Phrases (Lumina Press, 2006). I am a regular contributor to Dogster, Catster, and several veterinary industry magazines, including Veterinary Practice News and Today’s Veterinary Business, a publication of the North American Veterinary Community.
