I've always adored animals, but in the wake of my cat Molly's sudden passing in 2007, I rediscovered a magical connection with them that I hadn't felt since childhood. While I wasn't sure what would become of the spark of passion that was instantly ignited, I decided to take a leap and trust that the details would eventually weave themselves into a net.
Jill of Ark has evolved from a small, local pet sitter to a dog trainer to an intuitive consultant of international reach.
With the support of my animal guides, I've helped hundreds of clients take their relationships with their pets to beautiful new heights. They've developed clearer communication systems through training and behavioral modification and personal coaching. They've gained deeper understandings, and some have even learned to receive messages from their animals directly. They've alleviated conflicts and repaired damaged trust. They've laughed, they've cried a little, and they've open their hearts in entirely new ways.
As amazing as it is to witness these results, doing this work hasn't always been easy. I've come face-to-face with some of my biggest fears, been stymied by insecurities and limiting beliefs, and hit a slew of external roadblocks--including a fight for my health that nearly shut me down for good.
But these experiences carried with them some of my most important life lessons, and, of course, my animals were with me at every venture. At times, they were the only reason I made it through.
Inspiring others to clear the channels so that more love can flow between them and their animals is rewarding not only because of the transformative outcomes that are possible, but also because doing so keeps me grounded on my own path of self-healing.
