I started showing and breeding Pedigree cats under the Miamber prefix over 20 years ago, and even though I started out with Burmese I am best known for my Burmillas and Mandalay, two very little known breeds and both developed from Burmese. I have been honored with recognition for my work by show wins not only for my own cats but for those really lovely examples of the breed in Europe and New Zealand which have been bred down from my cats. In recent years I have sent Burmillas to the USA where they became one of the fastest tracked breeds for recognition in CFA, shortly followed by recognition in TICA, now they are truly an internationally recognized breed, I am a passionate experimental breeder who enjoys the challenge of developing a true breeding, healthy , beautiful well-tempered companion cat. As if the cat breeding and showing wasn't enough I became an All Shorthair judge some years ago and spend quite a few weekends of the year travelling and judging at Cat shows in Australia and New Zealand.
Dogs are a relatively new adventure for me, when I met the Griffon Bruxellois at a dog show I decided that I couldn't be without one. I am now owned by two smooth red Griffons. Breeding healthy animals with a few as possible genetic issues is very important to me, and equally important is supporting that health with a great diet. Employment with Royal Canin gives me the opportunity to communicate the benefits of feeding a great diet to breeders and pet owners alike.
