Julie serves as instructor and evaluator in the canine program for the Indiana Dept. of Homeland Security, and is the training director and K9 handler for Great Lakes Search and Rescue K9, Inc., a not for profit organization providing specially trained dogs to assist in locating missing persons.

Julie believes in a balanced approach to training and likes to see dogs and their owners enjoy a happy training relationship.
