Eileen Anderson writes about learning theory, her life with three dogs, and training with positive reinforcement on her own blog and for other publications. She brings to bear on these subjects a science background, critical thinking skills, and teaching experience. Eileen has worked professionally as a writer and academic editor, a network administrator, a remedial college math instructor, and a trainer of computer skills in academic and workplace settings. She has a long-standing interest in making technology accessible to women, people with limited literacy skills, and other underserved populations. She is now channeling that same urge to translate and illuminate in service of the humane treatment of dogs and joyful companionship between dogs and people. Her goal is to make training accessible and learning theory comprehensible to pet owners.She holds bachelor's and master's degrees in music performance and a master's degree in engineering science. She received a Certificate of Excellence for completion of Susan Friedman's applied behavior analysis course for animal professionals, Living and Learning with Animals, in 2012.
