MICHELLE PAGE, Founder
In Michelle"As a teenager I was diagnosed with Hydrocephalus, meaning excessive fluid on my brain, and a fancy way of saying my brain doesn’t function the way it should. Unfortunately, the only treatment for this condition is surgery, which I underwent at age 16.
Physically this condition affects my life through partial blindness, anxiety, depression and Narcolepsy. This in itself defined the course of my life, leaving me unable to work or even be left alone. My condition worsened in the spring of 2013 and I knew something had to change.
Soon after, my first service dog came home and my life has been forever changed. She gave me the ability to live my life the way I’ve always dreamed. As a mother of 2 children, a college student, and the wife and caregiver to a disabled war veteran, my dog saved more than my life, it saved my family. Passionate about sharing this feeling with others facing disabilities, I became a service dog Trainer. I love bringing to other families the hope and better quality of life a service dog brought to ours."
Our Organization is run in Michelle's Memory. She passed away in December of 2017. She was the rock of this organization and had an ability to bring people together. We all do this in her honor. We know she is looking down at us
Beckie Mossor, RVT
My passion for animals was apparent at a young agel. I spent summers horseback riding for 4H, begged my parents to let me keep just about every animal I came across. Eventually, this passon turned into my career as a Registered Veterinary Technician.
As a RVT have enjoyed a very diverse background working with everything from wildlife to large animals. I have enjoyed experiences in academia and management and just about everything in between. Eventually leading me to meet Michelle in the summer of 2015. In a very short time we knew our experiences combined could make 3K9 the most well rounded and divers training organization possible, and the rest is history so to say.
When I am not behind my desk or training dogs, I travel the country speaking and training other veterinary professionals in various areas of veterinary medicine and professional development, as well as speaking about service dogs, their needs and the rights they and their handlers have. I am a student at UNCP and married to a USMC veteran. I enjoy writing for various professional journals, teaching Pet First Aid and CPR, and teaching K9 Fitness as a K9 Fit Club Certified Master Trainer.
