Welcome to my Life Experience E-portfolio. For the past four decades my life’s work has involved animals and their humans. I have assisted in the development of thousands of human-canine relationships, mentored and coached at-risk and troubled youth using animals, and rescued thousands of animals from death, placing them in forever homes with people who need rescuing as well. Within these two chapters, I hope you will recognize the value animals have on human well-being and the mental health of young people who are at-risk.
