Krista Goodsitt

Krista grew up in Phoenix Arizona where at an early age she learned to ride horses from the infamous late gunslinger, Black Bart (Charles Gold). She later rode and competed in AQHA western shows, as well as hunter jumper competitions, while raising and caring for the family dogs, guinea pigs, lizard, rabbits and cats. Wild, wild west, indeed.

The only thing equaling her love of animals was her love for dance, and during her last year of high school she earned a scholarship to the prestigious Edge Performing Arts Center in Hollywood CA. She moved to Los Angeles to pursue her dreams in the television and film industry. Krista danced for many world-class acts, including Jennifer Lopez and Janes Addiction. She also appeared in dozens of TV shows and feature films, earning a 1999 Screen Actors Guild award for her role in Sam Mendes, American Beauty.

During this time Krista adopted her first rescue dog and became involved in volunteering for Los Angeles animal rescue and advocacy. Working as a volunteer at rescues and shelters she realized that making animals her life was the direction she wanted to go, so she started attending Animal Behavior College, earning her CBCC-KA certificate in canine behavior from the Council for Certified Pet Dog Trainers.

Krista currently works as a private canine behavior consultant in the Los Angeles area, specializing in transitioning and keeping rescue and adopted dogs in their new homes, and working for at risk youth and shelter dog programs.
