I tell dog stories.
For as long as I can remember I have been reading and telling dog stories. I grew up believing that a girl and her dog could save the world. After working over 30 years in health care, I discovered I was right .
Now I write about dogs,the human-animal connection, and animal assisted therapy. My experience as a retired professional in Health Care Quality and Humane Education Specialist informs my writing. My work has appeared in books, journals, magazines,blogs and print media.
A member of the Dog Writers Association of America, I am proud to be a past winner of the DWAA Maxwell Award for Best Blog . My new book DOGS IN HEALTH CARE is about the pioneer dogs of health care and moments in history when the human- animal bond propelled health care forward.
Dogs in Health Care Now Available at McFarlandbooks , at Amazon in paperback and Kindle
About Jill Lenk Schilp
I am a non fiction writer. I write at the intersection of dogs and human health. My canine partner Junior is a Golden Retriever who is a retired therapy dog and full-time muse. We are proud to say we live in the great state of Texas. Junior and I are Cub fans and enjoy supporting Golden Retriever Rescue, reading dog stories, and peanut butter- but not necessarily in that order.
Thank you for stopping by my site. After a period of challenges during the pandemic, I have come to a new appreciation of the comfort and support provided to us by our dogs. I hope you have a dog by your side as you read my blog and books, or at least a dog in your heart.
I am working on a new book about more notable pooches and more blog pieces in 2022 and sharing our journey. In the meantime, lets connect and keep our paws up.
