Ann Shult

That's what happened to me.  Don't get me wrong.  I loved the time I spent teaching high school biology and human anatomy, coaching and being a club advisor! My students were great! But things changed and so did I.

When I made the decision to retire from the classroom, I decided to go back to that childhood dream and work with animals. In 2019 I earned my certificate as a veterinary assistant from VetMed Team then spent almost a year working for Genoa Animal Hospital. I began taking classes with Canis Bodyworks in the hopes of bringing canine massage therapy to the practice. From there, the plan was to go to school to become a veterinary nurse (technician). It turns out veterinary medicine is for a younger crowd.  It is demanding work! I will always appreciate the women I worked with who had to turn on a dime from performing dentals, prepping for surgery, calling clients, filling prescriptions, running tests, and so much more!

In the spring of 2022, I made the decision to continue my education with Canis Bodyworks. I completed the program in November 2022 and started Tails of Tranquility.  It has turned out to be exactly what I wanted to do. Building trust with a dog, then bringing them comfort and peace with massage is so rewarding. At the same time, it helps me become more relaxed and calm.  Canine massage is mutually beneficial!
