After I returned from Starlight Mountain Theatre, I felt myself at a crossroads - I could try to submit diligently and endlessly for productions that did not end up happening and Zoom Theatre events (which just made me upset), or I could take this time to develop another skill set. Who knew that answering a random job posting for a dog daycare coach would lead to a whole new second career! After learning the basics of doggie behavior, I transitioned to a job as the head dog trainer at another company. Once I am certified by this company, I hope to grow my business, training specialty, and client base. Eventually, I want to train animals for theatre (like Bill Berloni)! Even though I wish I was performing, I am so grateful that COVID gave me the opportunity to discover a new passion of mine and develop a second career - one that will eventually become part of my first career!
