Continue Making a Difference ... Without Burning Yourself Out 

Coaching, Community, and Support for Pet Professionals

Life is too short to feel exhausted and overwhelmed.

Pet professionals are overworked and under-appreciated. Far too many struggle with burnout and compassion fatigue.

When you learn the tools of resilience, you'll never again have to feel like you take care of everyone while neglecting yourself. 

Work more effectively, recharge more completely, and feel like yourself again!

You don’t have to choose between the welfare of animals and your own well-being anymore.

  • Frustrated that no matter how much you do, it’s never enough?
  • Feeling depleted by the endless demands on your time and energy?
  • Exhausted by expectations of how you “should” be?
  • Falling short on the commitments you’ve made to yourself--and the people who matter most?

Be your best self

Reclaim your personal time

Love your work again

You don't have to go it alone.
Let's work together.


With one-on-one coaching or Positive Changes small-group coaching, you'll make changes that stick. You deserve to show up as your best self in every area of your life!


In UNLEASHED Resilience, you'll learn new ways to understand and support yourself better with people who genuinely care about you.


There's lots of free support available through the UNLEASHED (at work & home) podcast and our open Facebook group.

Welcome. I am so glad you are here.

As lifelong animal lovers, we dreamed of how good it would feel to have a career making life better for animals and the people who love them.

But what happens when you realize that your work is taking a toll on you? The overwhelm and exhaustion just keep building, right?

My name is Colleen, and I want to help you find your balance again. As a fellow pet pro (28 years as a dog trainer), I understand the weight of feeling like no matter how much you do, it’s never enough.

It's why I became a coach and now help pet pros continue making a difference without burning themselves out. And I would like to help you do the same.

Imagine what it will be like to feel energized and engaged again.

You are enough. You deserve to know your strengths and use them to show up as your best self in every area of your life.
