From 2017 Nationals site:
I live with my husband of 26 years, Robin, and my two fur kids Torque and Taser, Australian Kelpies.
I was initiated into this wonderful sport in 1990 thanks to a very hyper mixed breed dog. I fell in love with agility the minute I started training and the love affair continues to this day. I have been judging since the 90’s and have loved every minute I have spent either playing or judging.
I have always loved the National Championships as both a competitor and as a judge and have had the privilege of judging Nationals on several occasions. This year will be special as I get to come all the way across the county to share in your excitement and watch poetry in motion.
Good luck and happy courses to all the competitors this weekend. I hope that each time you step into the ring and to the start line with your canine partner, you do so remembering the reasons why you compete in this sport we all love. Run clean and have fun!
