Kelly has been a professional companion animal care provider for 10 years and a small business owner for 8 of those years. Frustrated with the tidal wave of requests her companion animal care business received to re-home cats with preventable behavior problems, Kelly studied cat behavior to save cats from surrender and declawing.
Kelly has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Shepherd University, a Master of Science in Strategic Leadership from Mountain State University, and a Certificate in Applied Animal Behavior from the University of Washington.
Kelly is a professional member of the Pet Professional Guild, a certified Fear Free professional, and a Dognostics Collaborative Care Provider, adhering to their principles of exclusively providing force free solutions to animal behavior. She is certified by Mission Reunite and the Missing Animal Response Network as a missing cat consultant.
