One of the wonderful things about Taurus is how much encouragement they provide to their employees to learn and grow. With the Learning Levels Program, we are able to expand our knowledge and increase our awareness in order to excel at what we do. This program has been a key component in assisting us in creating happy households. With this opportunity to grow, Taurus maintains its progressive nature and is constantly willing to evolve. It makes me proud to be a part of an organization that pushes me to be the best that I can be. I'm excited to see what the future holds for Taurus!

Our HQ campus houses our learning center and administrative offices. Taurus’ learning center is a hotbed of new ideas, where we dialogue, discuss, learn, and grow. While we do not have dogs at this location, we are happy to answer training inquiries and direct you to one of our other facilities.
Originally from Massachusetts, Jeff has been with Taurus since 2010. Jeff has a strong background in psychology and received his Master's in Biology. He utilizes both in his training work, and appreciates that this combined experience has led to positive training results and a fuller appreciation of animal behavior. He enjoys board and card games, hiking, and marathon viewings of TV shows on Netflix.

Kassy finds every day at Taurus to be fun and challenging. She loves getting to know the dogs’ personalities and figuring out why dogs do the things they do. When not at Taurus, you might find Kassy with her dog Sadie Mae, walking the Town Lake trail or on the patio of a local Mexican restaurant, eating chips and queso and enjoying a margarita. Kassy loves indie rock and folk, so she is very happy to be in Austin!
With a B.S. in Zoology, a lot of experience, and a tremendous amount of talent, Wallace is often called upon to mentor the rest of the Taurus Pack regarding training and behavior. Wallace loves staying close to the heart of downtown and enjoying all it has to offer. Wallace has 3 dogs of his own, and a "dog in a cat suit” named July. When not involved with dogs (which is pretty much all the time), Wallace can usually be found in the company of good friends.
Chief Learning Officer
As an Austin native, Michele has 20+ years of accounting experience and loves working at Taurus Academy because who doesn't love being surrounded by dogs? She has a super sweet Greyhound mix named Leyla and a lazy, tuxedo cat named Chad. Even though Michele has spent a lot of her career working in numbers, she has a creative side! She is a freelance photographer and spends her weekends shooting events and pets, but mostly has a niche photographing roller derby teams and events. And when she isn't photographing roller derby, she plays too!
