I have been involved with Alaskan Malamutes in Australia for over 25 years and am a member of the Alaskan Malamute Club of NSW, Victoria, New Zealand and America. I started off some twenty-five years ago, with Alaskan Malamutes in conformation showing. Koolrunnings Kennels was shortly after founded and now, also established in New Zealand. I am passionate about the show ring and continually strive to improve the breed and make the public aware of the great qualities Alaskan Malamutes have. I have imported 3 dogs from USA & frozen semen from several kennels in USA, Europe and New Zealand. I have exported show dogs to America, China, United Kingdom, South Africa, Japan and New Zealand. After over 25 years in the breed, I am an Alaskan Malamute breed specialist and Spitz breed specialist.

I am a licensed Working dogs, Utility and Non Sporting Group judge and I am a trainee Terrier Judge. I have judged specialties for Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Huskys, Boxers & Dalmatians. I have judged at group level across Australia, New Zealand at at Palm Springs, CA USA. I look forward to judging in 2019 in USA the Alaskan Malamute speciality and 3 all breed shows.

I have been involved in and handled some of the Top Alaskan Malamutes, Siberian Husky’s, Bernese Mountain Dogs, Boxers, Bullmastiff’s, German Pinscher’s, Cairn Terriers and Long Coat Chihuahua’s. I have handled dogs in Australia, New Zealand and USA. I also have owned Bernese Mountain Dogs & Long Coat Chihuahua’s over the past 12 years. I have bred over 40 Champions with over 70 BIS & BISS wins.

I am on the committee of the Belconnen All Breeds Kennel Club, and a life member of the Canberra Non Sporting Utility & Working Dog club where I held various committee positions. I have regularly presented the Alaskan Malamute breed lecture to the DogsNSW Conformation Judges Training Scheme.

Other interests include walking, cooking, reading and enjoying the NSW South coast beaches with my husband and two children.
