Walking with Prada

The Power of Love for Dogs and Humans

Monday morning live with Natasa Denman featuring one of her amazing authors, Silvia Mesa.

Silvia Mesa was born in Barquisimeto, Venezuela. In 1989, her family decided to move to Miami, Florida seeking a better life.

Silvia got married to Miguel Mesa and had two children, Cristina and Carlos. She graduated from FIU in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Currently, she works as an administrator for her dad’s real estate company.

In 2017, Silvia became a therapy dog handler and team up with her Golden Retrievers Prada, Charlie Brown and Lalique. She loved her work so much as a therapy dog team that she got a certification from Oakland University in Human-Animal Intervention.

After 6 years working as a volunteer in libraries with her therapy dog Charlie Brown, Silvia decided to look for a certification that could facilitate her to work with children. In January of 2023 she obtained a certification from Adventure in Wisdom, a program that helps kids with their mindset skills.

Silvia is also now a Life Coach for Kids with her partner therapy dog Charlie Brown. Together they run Charlie’s Wags of Wisdom. Just recently, she published her first book, Walking with Prada, which became an Amazon bestselling book.

Key Takeaways:

1. Overcoming struggles and find ways to succeed
2. Understanding the deep connection between humans and dogs and how both benefit from each other
3. Finding purpose in life and doing what I love helping others specially children
