The cliff notes version: I’m a Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist and Certified Cat Behavior Consultant who has been working with cats for over 20 years. I completed my PhD at the University of California, Berkeley, and was a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Veterinary Medicine at the University of California, Davis.

I offer cat behavior consulting through Feline Minds.

I am recognized internationally as a cat expert, and I have been interviewed by the BBC, the New York Times, Washington Post, Slate, National Geographic, the Atlantic, Newsweek, among many other news platforms. I am author of the book “Play with Your Cat!” (2024, Tarcher/Perigee) and co-authored the 2017 book “Total Cat Mojo,” with Jackson Galaxy.
