About Coral Dogs


If you have ever known the love of a dog then you understand why I created Coral Dogs. These are the stories of the dogs that I know and love at my local municipal animal servies, Alachua County Animal Services. Some stories are happy, some are sad, but all paint a picture of homeless dogs and the volunteers trying to save them at shelters throughout the south. 

Freelance Writing

When I’m not busy fostering or volunteering, I am a freelance writer. I am proud to write for Dogviously.com. This dedicated team does the research and puts in the hours to produce the best informational articles and product reviews online. I don’t just test products with shelter dogs once or twice. I keep on using them, so I know how they hold up over time. 

I accept some new work, especially anyting creative, about dogs, and that carries my byline. If you’re interested in hiring me, don’t hesitate to contact me.

New Book!

My book, Owning a Paralyzed Dog – The Complete Care Guide: Helping Your Disabled Dog Live Their Life to the Fullest is available on Amazon.

The book is about caring for disabled dogs, especially paralyzed dogs. It was inspired by my dog Winston, who came to me when I worked at the University of Florida Small Animal Hospital. He has since found his forever home with a wonderful family full of other King Charles Cavaliers and plenty of love. 

About Me

My fiance, Justin, and I live with our two little dogs, Sofie and Lisa, and three chickens in Gainesville, Florida. Justin and I are homebodies who occasionally enjoy a good adventure.

I love living in Gainesville, and I love Florida. I can’t imagine anywhere more beautiful or strange than this hot, marshy place where people are guaranteed to be nothing other than themselves.

Justin is always reminding me to relax. Relaxing doesn’t come naturally to me. I’m always busy. Making art or editing photos, digging in the yard or trying to grow some new moss or plant.

There never seems to be enough time to do everything that I want to do. Life is so, so full and I want to plunge into every second of it.
