Memberships and Certifications

In an effort to keep up to speed on animal behavior and dog training (and to keep up with Sophie and Boomer), I am a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and the National Association of Canine Scent Work, and a Lead Dog Trainer with Fur-Get Me Not.  In 2013, I became a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) and a Certified Nose Work Instructor (CNWI). I serve on the Board of Directors of Homeward Trails Animal Rescue and the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies, and am proud to have volunteered for my local animal shelter, run by the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

I am licensed to practice law in Virginia, Maryland, the District of Columbia and Washington State.  I served as the Chair of the Maryland State Bar Association’s Animal Law Section from 2013 to 2014 and I am also a member of the Washington State Bar Animal Law Section.
