I have had minor training in the fields of animal behavior and conservation both through classes such as AP Environmental Studies, and personal endeavors such as my apprenticeship in dog training.
Experience in animal behavior and training
2+ years experience in customer service
I had to work with upwards of 20 dogs each day in the Day Care center, maintaining the group, monitoring behaviors and taking protective measures in some cases. As a kennel facilitator I made sure the dogs were fed, bathed, let out, and properly exercised.
I worked mostly as a pizza maker and cashier, I had to be able to manage my time very well and relate to customers in a variety of situations under various pressures including lack of time and lack of space
I worked with dog trainer Cynthia Kurtz who is self taught but renowned by many Animal Behaviorists in her field. I co-taught puppy and dog training classes, assisted her in home visit training sessions and read many books on animal behavior under her recommendation. I was also one of her youngest and most dedicated assistants and we still keep in touch to discuss my future education and career
I am currently working with Save Endangered Animals Oregon through my animal welfare club and I intend to work with the Primate Research Center over the summer as an intern
