Writing at the intersection of Dogs, People and Mental Health

Stories of Connection-Dog By Dog


I tell  dog stories.

For as long as I can remember I have been  reading and telling dog stories. Now I  write stories about dogs,the human-animal connection, and animal assisted therapy. cropped-8d524621-ed76-4023-8d5c-9e01c8c011bc.jpgMy background as a masters level psychiatric nurse, 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. I am the author of a book on using performance data for health care improvement. 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 latest project  is a new book about the pioneer dogs of health care.

Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you will check out my blog posts here at Jill Schilp.com and watch for news about my new book about how dogs transformed health care- coming in 2019.
