This Bio tells the story of who I am and why I became a breeder.
In reading this page and getting to know more about me you will find a responsible breeder, dedicated to producing the BEST healthy and happy Standard Poodle Pups!
I grew up in a small California desert town that few would ever have heard of, were it not for its many contributions to aerospace. The good old Antelope Valley, where there were lots of farms, alfalfa ranches, almond orchards and of course, JETS! More about that later…
Poodles have always been part of my life. My sisters and I grew up with them. My (and I’m sure everyone’s) favorite was a black standard poodle named Babette. I called her “Babby”. You could say we were born together, as we both came to the world in the same summer. We had other poodles, all great dogs, but none were like Babby. They were miniature poodles, Babby was a standard and there is a difference.
There was nothing Babby couldn’t do. She was incredibly intelligent and game for the next adventure. She swam, hiked, hunted, even rode the horses with me! We literally grew up together. Standard poodles would forever be imprinted on my heart. Through thick and thin, my best friend and guardian was with me. About the time I was set to go to college, my sweet Babby passed away at the ripe old age of 17. I knew then that some day I would return to poodles.
Here’s what happened in between the then and the now...
Event That Changed My Life
My first job after high school was a waitress part-time while I worked my way through college. Working as a waitress in a restaurant doesn’t sound very exciting, but it would prove to be pivotal in changing the course of my life.
A couple of regular lunchtime customers worked for an aerospace company, Rockwell International (now Boeing) on the B-1 Bomber. They told me about a program at Rockwell that trained high school graduates for certification as a Thermo Protection Systems Mechanic for the Space Shuttle Program. I had to pass the entrance exam and a couple of interviews. This, along with the recommendation from my friends at the B-1 Bomber got me into the program.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. I decided to put college on hold and give it a try. After all, it was the Space Shuttle!
…Then the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) came along...
Education: After being laid off from a career that spanned over a decade, I decided to return to college since the future of manufacturing didn’t look too bright. Summer, 2008, I gradated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Management. I graduated Cum Laude, All while getting married, starting a family and raising 4 children. Anything worth doing is worth doing well!
Throughout the years spanning both my careers and college, all while raising a family, there were few hours left in the day for anything else.
- Yet I never forgot about the stamp on my heart called “Poodle” -
So here we are in the present day. My children are now in college and high school. After many long years of working and raising a family, I am ready for the next chapter in my life. After all these years, I’ve come back to poodles!
