A lot of people think that when they hear I have 7 dogs and 2 ferrets. And that’s NOW. Not sure I can list every animal I’ve brought into my home, helped nurse back to health, picked up of the side of the road, rescued from a bad situation, given advice on….should I go on? I’m a huge Pit Bull advocate and do what I can for the Southern Colorado Pit Bull Advocates. Trying to make people realize that bullies are dogs. They are individuals. Well, I advocate. I also happen to be their link to the media, government, etc. But, enough about that. I am an animal lover. All animals. Not PETA-like, I don’t picket against circus animals (though some situations are less than ideal), fur or eating meat. I’m a realist. I believe in compassion. I believe in early morning kisses no matter how many times they’ve licked their butts. I am also a huge community lover and have been involved and doing what I can since the Army brought me here in 1989. I’ve worked consistently and not living with my parents since the age of 17 (when I joined the military) and have never had to, nor did, move back home. I love to work. I love to feel productive and like I’m contributing. I do sales & community relations for Signarama as a regular gig. Thanks, Steve! A huge, and I mean huge, football fan and sit on the board for the Pikes Peak Browns Backers (a 501c organization that gives back to 3 local charities each season, mostly animal-related) I am an independent fitness coach for Beachbody as well, www.pitbull-fitness.com. Have to get my energy to put in hours upon hours each day! However, my biggest passion, started just a few short months ago, is a charitable organization called Coats 4 Canines (www.coats4canines.org) Their mission is to provide comfort to the less fortunate/homeless population by helping take care of their pets. Animal welfare is the primary focus and will be reached by providing essential warm and cold weather gear to the pets; expanding shelter services and education. So what makes me qualified to do this show? Experience. Love. Passion. Commitment. Throw in a little bit of knowledge and we’re covered! Hope you can join us at 5:00 pm every Tuesday for a range of topics you’ll want to call in about! So many places you can find me and my work/passion, so hit me up on Facebook and you’ll find those! I love meeting new people! Connect with Me on Facebook!! PS – A shout out to my mom in Ohio (where I’m from) for instilling in me the love of animals. And I still wonder what ever happened to that rattlesnake we rescued years ago…..it got loose on our porch after 3 days and we never saw it again….
