• Double-Major obtaining Bachelors Degrees in Psychology and Sociology, specializing in
• FEMA Crisis Response certified.
• Serve on Crisis Response Teams (now include Comfort Animals to assist in crisis counseling
during disasters, both natural and manmade).
• I was a full-time Counselor prior to being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
• After the diagnosis of MS, I became a Medical-Psychological-Crisis Technical Adviser for movies and tv shows; and became a member of SAG/AFTRA after Director of the film Selma, Ava DuVernay, wrote a small role for me in a Medical scene since I was the production’s
• Avid Animal Rescue Activist, including raising awareness to end Animal Abuse, Cruelty, Neglect, Hoarding, Puppy Mills and Dog Fighting.
• Due to being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at a Disability Level in 2014, my main goal in life is to match Veterans and People with Disabilities with Service & Therapy Animals, with
animals coming from Animal Rescue Shelters.
• I credit my late father, Dr. Dennis Young, for my unwavering purpose of incorporating animals into the lives of our Veterans with PTSD and other Disabilities, as well as in the lives of people
with disabilities. My Dad was a psychologist and trained a Service Dog to better help Vets, law enforcement, kids bereavement camps and hospitals. The dog my Dad trained, his 4-legged best friend “Diesel”, was the only Service Dog in the United States certified to pull carts for Veterans and people with disabilities to participate in parades, 5ks or to just outside of a hospital for fresh air.
My Dad passed away in 2016; Diesel passed away two months later from a “Grieved, Broken Heart”.
•I’ve chosen to dedicate my life to carrying his torch.
I am in close proximity of a military base and counties, even my own, have kill-shelters and ironically, after a year of research, I wrote a program for Veterans & people with Disabilities that
would match them with Service Animals that would come from kill-shelters. Through contacts, the program was endorsed by an official from the White House Administration and it was sent to
the Secretary of Veteran Affairs. I say “ironically” because my vision was the same as this organization without even knowing if
this incredible Service Animal LLC.
I understand having PTSD from cruelty of the world & about a disability that changes life. It’s a struggle to find your purpose. It was our rescue pets that helped me find a purpose and rejoin
family, friends and community.
I’m honored to be a part of this extremely important organization.
•22 Veteran suicides a day is unacceptable. We’re given gifts for a reason. Mine is that even with MS, I can combine my education, experience on Crisis Response Teams and experience
as someone who’s life was changed by an illness beyond my control and save lives of both people and animals in need.
•I’ve always been the girl who gets turtles out of roadways, carries dog and cat food in my car and never leaves an animal behind.

Still in need of a Trademark attorney that will go to court in Texas, Arizona, Arkansas, and Georgia. Florida headquarters. Maybe if I social media blast that Veteran Rescue is a registered trademark of Animal Rescue & Veteran Support Services, Corp enough times people will stop stealing it.
