Joanna graduated from Sheridan College in 1985 with a diploma in Computer Management. Over the last twenty years, she had been involved in the breeding, whelping, raising, training and showing of Champion Shetland Sheepdogs.
Joanna has always had a special interest in caring for animals. Her first pets as a toddler were a bunny and a budgie, since then she has always had multiple family pets, primarily cats and dogs.
After a 15 year career with the Ministry of Corrections, her passion for animals directed her to a career change. She trained as a pet groomer and continued her involvement in show dogs.
Joanna shares her love of animals with her husband of 27 years and their second generation of Champion Shelties, Tango and Ocean.
