Amy is our massage therapist. She owns and operates Amy’s Animal Massage and is available at The Puddle on a weekly basis.
“As far back as I can remember I have loved animals. Over the years I have had many different kinds of pets and have loved them all. I have always known that one day I would help and work with animals in some capacity.
After high school I attended St. Xavier University in Chicago where I graduated with a bachelors degree in biology. I then went to Joliet Junior College where I completed the veterinary technology program. I passed my certification exam in the summer of 2003 and have been a certified veterinary technician ever since. I have worked at a few animal clinics over the years and was at one place for just over twelve years. There I was head technician for 6 of those years. In 2014, I had my second little boy and took a step back from my career to raise my children. During that time I learned about canine massage and its amazing benefits and I knew it was something I had to do.
In February of 2016 I began the 10 month program at the Chicago School of Canine Massage. This school not only offered great lectures but countless hands on practice and experience. Each class we had the opportunity to work on several dogs. We also worked with shelter dogs at Animal Care League and Anti-Cruelty Society. We did post event massages at Bark in the Park at Soldier Field in Chicago and Puppy Up in Wheaton, IL.”
