"I love being around animals. I feel a strong connection and magnetic pull towards them, and I am only beginning to learn how to tap into that. I always want to be moving in a direction that strengthens this gift, while simultaneously helping others do the same."
Kate Grimm, Owner
MEET THE TEAM
While I have spent my life surrounded by animals, I officially started working in the industry in 2015, after obtaining a Bachelor of Professional Studies in Business Management. I gained experience working in multiple dog boarding and daycare facilities prior to, and while growing, Sigh of Relief. In the spring of 2017, Sigh of Relief was established and opened for dog walking and cat care. Simultaneously, I was enrolled in a dog training program, becoming an Animal Behavior College Certified Dog Trainer (ABCDT) in January 2018. Since then, I have continued my education in training and dog behavior by working with trainers who truly encompass the meaning of holistic dog training. My goal is to use all of my knowledge not only in training, but throughout every service that SOR offers.
Kelsey joined the Sigh of Relief team in September 2020. Kelsey's background includes several years of experience working with dogs in the daycare and boarding industry. She is currently walking dogs for SOR while working towards a bachelor's degree at SUNY Empire. When Kelsey is not walking dogs or studying, she enjoys hiking with her adorable and energetic Australian Shepherd, Harper.
