About Me

I was born into the dog show world and have been around show dogs all my life. My family has always had Golden Retrievers and used to breed, but now just focus on breed showing. I have two Australian Shepherds at home and also help my family campaign their Golden Retriever.

Since the formation of the Young Kennel Club (Now Junior Dog Showing / Junior Dog Handler) I have remained passionate about helping young handlers. I have competed and won the 16-20 years section, and was part of the unbeaten team for the team event. I have also served on the YKC and JDH committees, and assisted in running heats in the upper north island and national final. 

I currently work as an Intensive Care Paramedic in Auckland; I have a Bachelor if Health Science (Paramedicine), Postgraduate Certificate in Critical Care, and currently working on a Postgraduate Diploma in Health Science. 

In June 2019 I was elected President of The Golden Retriever Club Inc.

In November 2020 I was promoted to the Open Show panel.
