A Vision of You at Your Best
I choose to show up in my life.
I do hard tasks because I care.
I know life is hard and beautiful.
I have a soft heart and a strong spine.
I love to laugh.
I’m always learning.
I make my own choices,
and I own my decisions.
I am creative, joyful, and brave.
Life is too short to be exhausted and unappreciated.
Work should not be a place of suffering. You don't come last. You're not alone.
Helpers deserve help too.
After 25+ years as a dog trainer, I went through a rough period of burnout and compassion fatigue. To work through it, I cross trained in the study of resilience, positive psychology, and coaching.
That knowledge led me in a new direction: Helping pet professionals manage their stress and find more joy so they can continue making a difference without burning themselves out.
