I became a member of Peoria Obedience Training Club in September 2022 with my dog, Athena, a 2-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. In the past, I’ve always had yellow labs. When our last lab, Daisy, passed away in 2020, we decided to get a ridgeback. Athena healed our hearts and challenged our patience. We are starting our agility and scent work journeys together. My husband, Mike, daughter, Emilee, and I reside in Bartonville. In my spare time, I love being a crazy chicken lady, beekeeper, and traveling with my family. I previously worked as an accountant for an international company. In addition to being the treasurer of POTC, I am the treasurer of a non-profit organization, Sotos Syndrome Support Association. I also provide accounting services for Dala Development, Wheel Art Pottery, and ICE Process Management.
