Marie was born and raised in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and just recently relocated to Deltona, Florida. Some of her fondest memories of Wyoming include working at her local animal shelter, finding forever homes for those she was lucky enough to care for: dogs, cats, pigs, and every animal in between.
Marie eventually earned her certification as a Professional Dog Trainer, and developed a passion for teaching group training classes; she looks forward to someday offering training classes to her new community! Marie believes her deep sense of compassion and respect, for all animals and humans alike, makes her a perfect fit for The Funky Mutt Market. Marie loves to spend her free time with her Bassett Hound, Frank, as well as her two beloved kitties, Mittz and Kitten; she’s also the fond caretaker of a Ball Python named Bo.
