I have three years with Providence police department corresponding training, mainly focusing on canine unit and mounted unit training and handling. Graduated from the Rhode Island state police citizens Academy in 2021. I have also assisted with many animal cruelty investigations and cases undercover since 2016. My soul animal is a wolf an I’ve always tried to advocate for them and tried to help educate the community about them. Wolfdogs and hybrids are something that I am continually learning about.
