I was born in 1988, I'm mother of two teenagers. Our herd also includes cats and sheeps. We live in Finland at the Pihtipudas countryside in an idyllic over 100 years old farmhouse.

Animals have always been a part of my life more or less, nowadays much more. First they were an interest, then a hobby and little by little they became a way of life.

I have signed the Finnish Kennel Clubs breeder commitment and received kennel name Blessed Beast's in 2017.

I got my kennel counselor qualification in June 2023, I work mainly in the kennel district of Central Finland.
