A native Long Islander, I feel more like I belong on a farm out in the country than living in the suburban community where I presently reside. I have been an animal lover all of my life and have been the guardian of everything from parrots to Quarter Horses. I have spent the last 15 years with Golden Retrievers, currently living with three: Goose, Dart and Drake. Over the years I found myself always looking for ways to learn more about all aspects of dogs – my true passion! After 25 years of spending my time managing the freelance court reporting agency I owned with my sister, Marcy, I decided to follow my heart and simply let my life go to the dogs.
