My journey began in primary school when I aspired to work in a pet shop, and later in high school, I dreamt of becoming a vet. In year 11, I proactively pursued my passion by completing Certificate 1 in Animal Studies through TAFE SA. Afterward, I earned a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science from the University of Adelaide.

I pursued additional qualifications in Cert 4 Small Business and studied the Karen Pryor Academy, Professional’s course in 2021, with the goal of turning my long-held dream into a reality.

A standout experience during my academic years was my work with the Royal Society for the Blind, focusing on Guide dogs.


I then moved to Perth where I began my first job in the animal industry at a cuddly animal farm caring for over 50 different animals including guinea pigs, rabbits, goats, lambs, pigs, cows, llamas, ponies, chickens, ducks, and many more. With my degree, it was also my responsibility to nurture and treat those that were sick and injured.

Subsequently, I joined the Dogs Refuge Home, the largest dog rescue organisation in Perth. This role involved caring for dogs, facilitating adoptions, and assisting in veterinary nursing. I became particularly interested in working with reactive dogs, such as Funky, and contributed to their desensitisation training.

As my passion for dogs grew, I moved to a management position at a Cat Rescue but continued volunteering at the Dog Rescue, reinforcing my devotion to canines. This led me to the realisation that my true calling lies with dogs.

After moving back to Adelaide, I studied business, to turn my life long dream into a reality September 2021.

Who is Ari?

I fulfilled my dream of having a dog when I adopted Ari, who quickly became an integral part of my life. Our journey together involved obedience training, and we even won our first Obedience competition in just 10 weeks.

The bond I formed with Ari was unlike any other, and it inspired me to establish Ari&Me Doggy Daycare in 2021.
