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 Certified 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.

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 visiting my site and I hope you will check out my blog posts here at Jill Schilp.com, watch for news about my new book release events, and read about how dogs transformed health care and the humans who share their lives with our canine partners.

Peace, Love, and Paws Up,

Jill (and Junior)
