Cabell Youell, Executive Director with St. Francis Service Dogs, spoke to our membership on the fine subject line of Emotional Support Animals vs. Service Animals. Ms. Youell outlined how St. Francis Service Dogs are trained and what they do for their disabled person. These amazing dogs go through two years of intensive training. There are some dogs that don’t complete the program. St. Francis dogs often bridge the stigma gap that society views the disabled person and can often draw other people to the disabled person in a positive way. Emotional Support Animals offer comfort and/or emotional support for a wide range of mental disabilities.

You could say I was driven to RPM. I was working 12-hour days selling cars, and I knew it wasn’t the long-term career choice I was looking for. When I became a new mother, I also needed a new career with flexibility. I joined the residential property management (RPM) industry in a part-time leasing position and grew fast in the job.
