Her Animal-Related Professional Experience (condensed down a bit):

Her Life at Home:

After getting married in 2013, Kelsey and her husband relocated to Southern Maryland and shortly thereafter began Right on Cue Dog Training. They currently share their home with a spotted hound dog (named Sherlock the Hound), a cat, a large fish tank and the occasional service dog.  In their spare time they enjoy travelling, board games, and outdoor activities.


Kelsey has seen the enormous impact of positive reinforcement in many areas of life and is passionate about using it to change lives. When she isn't dog training she also enjoys a part-time job working with children with autism and continues to volunteer with Susquehanna Service Dogs.
