I also work with helping small businesses with their website needs. Previously, I had a 25 year banking career. Retired several years ago, as a Vice President of Commercial Banking and Business Development Director for a financial institution. I have owned and raised dogs and cats for over 40 years. In 2007, we started to show and raise Australian Terriers. We have 6 Australian Terriers and 2 Australian Shepherds. Breeder of Multiple Best in Show Aussies. We own and have bred some of the top Australian Terriers in the USA. We have bred and co-own the 16th and 17th Best in Show Australian Terrier in America he held the #1 in All-Breed in the USA in both 2013 and 2014. We have bred/own/handle the 2015 #1 Australian Terrier in the USA Jake who also won his first Best in Show with my 15 year old daughter Ellie handling him. Jake is only the 2nd "red" Australian Terrier to ever win a BIS. Breeder of 2 Australian Terriers to Win Best of Breed Westminster 2014 and 2015.
