Prior to that, Jamie worked at Chicago Animal Care and Control, where she handled intake, plus used training methods to help dogs be less fearful and more adoptable.

In addition, she was an Animal Care Specialist at The Anti-Cruelty Society, the largest and oldest animal rescue in Chicago. In this role, she used training techniques to help dogs become more acclimated to the environment, in addition to performing other job duties. She also worked closely with a leading trainer while in this position, who gave her a deep understanding of positive reinforcement techniques.

She has also interned with Safe Humane Chicago, an organization that partners with government agencies and the community to promote the identification, arrest, prosecution, and sentencing of animal abusers, plus the humane treatment of animals.

She was also a Pet Nutrition Ambassador for Nestle Purina.

Testimonials


Jamie did a great job! She helped us build a good puppy foundation for our pup.

- Robert Nutt





We decided to do the Turnkey training for Murphy because a lot of his issues were at home or in our apartment building. It helped SO much! I am so thankful for Jamie and the work she's done (and still continues to do) with Murphy. As first time dog owners, we were a bit lost. She provided so many tips to us on how to manage Murphy in certain situations. We don't know what we would have done without Jamie and your Turnkey training!

- Rebecca Mueller





Jamie did a great job in our puppy manners class. Specifically, it was extremely helpful to watch her demonstrate the skill and then allow us to practice. We especially appreciated the way she would observe and then correct as needed. I would highly recommend taking another class with Jamie. Chevy is a much better trained dog as a result of this class.

- Markisha Berrien and Ryan Fitzsimons
