Teryn grew up in Western Massachusetts with a passion for animals, conservation and creativity. As a young girl without a dog, she dreamed of having a Doberman duo of her very own, just like Zeus & Apollo.
In addition to a BA in English and a BFA in Graphic Design, Teryn has been training dogs for over 19 years. As former Director of Graphic Operations for an international environmental design firm, she worked for some of the biggest brands in the world - but, she missed the joy of training dogs and working with animal-lovers, like herself.
Teryn is a staunch proponent of humane education and principals that nurture compassion and respect for all living beings. Today, she's combining her graphic design and marketing background, with her passion for humane education and animal welfare. She's determined to help grow the ABWC brand and propel the movement of science-based, force-free animal intervention and education to the forefront of modern pet culture.
