I am originally from Hampton, Virginia and have always had a love for animals since I can remember. When I was a teenager, I inspired to be a Veterinarian, but after volunteering at a local Veterinarian Hospital, I realized that Veterinarian work was not for me. Even though I no longer intended to be a Veterinarian, I would still volunteer at various pet organizations with my mom. When I was 21, I joined the United States Air Force and was stationed at Shaw AFB, SC, Spangdahlem AB, Germany and Mountain Home AFB here in Idaho. After 8 1/2 years of service, I decided to leave the Air Force and pursue other opportunities. In January 2015, I began the process of getting a Service Animal to help with my PTSD. While going through this process I rediscovered my passion and love for animals, specifically dogs. I then began to work as a Kennel Tech and quickly advanced to the Kennel Tech Manager at a local dog training facility. Upon doing some research, I discovered I could use my G.I. Bill to pursue my passion of dog training.
Now that I have graduated Animal Behavior College I intend to use as much of my G.I. Bill as possible to broaden and enhance my Trainer’s Toolbox through school, seminars, extensive literature, and other educational resources.
I currently belong to Karma, a 4-yr old Siberian Husky, Juju, a 3-yr old Siberian Husky, and Aura, a 2-yr old Belgian Malinois.
“We loved our training experience with Jasmine! Our puppy learned so much and really benefited from this! Jasmine is a great trainer. I still would highly recommend her!” – Abby Coffrey
“Jasmine truly cares about every dog that comes in the door. Buddy and I have had the best experience dog training with her. She tackles every problem with an individualized approach, and gives tips on how to create the best learning/teaching environment at home. Buddy couldn’t wait to go to school every Saturday! So thankful for her and all that she does!” – Amy Bellenbaum
