Cecelia Ziman-DeStefano, BA
Cecelia grew up in Philadelphia and is a recent transplant to beautiful Austin, Texas. She has always loved animals and begged for her own dog since she could talk.
She has many passions in life, and after getting her BA in Psychology from Millersville University, she realized that she wanted to use all of the techniques she had learned to teach and train dogs. She then graduated with honors from Animal Behavior College and worked with dogs all over the Philadelphia area including training in the behavioral department of the Pennsylvania SPCA and a program that worked with released inmates on how to train rescue dogs. She has always been fascinated with animal and human learning and motivation, and how to instill new skills and behaviors both quickly and effectively. She loves teaching humans and canines and seeing the moment a new skill clicks in their minds.
When not spending time with dogs, she performs improvisational comedy, is a local potter, and explores new hiking trails and restaurants.
