Tim Link is president and CEO of Wagging Tales and is a practicing animal communicator. As part of his passion for helping animals, Tim also has mastered Reiki – an ancient art of energy healing – which he uses on animals.
Tim has recently been featured in numerous newspaper, television and radio shows including the Associated Press, “The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet,” “Good Day Atlanta,” Forsyth County News, The Bronx Times, Species Link, “Live Your Legacy”, “Cumming Home”, Luxury Las Vegas, Woman2Woman, and remains a regular guest on three internet radio shows. Since May 2008, Tim has been a featured AJCpets.com expert for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Tim grew up in Richmond, Ind. He married his high school sweetheart, Kim, and graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in sales and marketing. After graduation, he built a successful twenty plus year career in sales management for the telecommunications industry, earning numerous awards and promotions for his achievements. He was living his dream as an all-American guy.
In February 2004, Tim learned (with great surprise) that he could communicate telepathically with animals. Until then, he had no idea he had this ability. Initially, Tim never intended to let many people know about his newfound gift. He practiced with his own pets and those of his family and close friends as well as those boarded at the local rescue shelter. As he continued to practice on more and more animals, he noticed his gift was getting stronger. One day while volunteering at the shelter, a friend “outed” him and recommended that he help another friend who was having a situation with a pet.
Since his gift continued to expand and could not be ignored, he decided to embrace this new way of helping animals. Tim officially formed Wagging Tales in November 2007 to communicate with animals and their owners, and to perform Reiki energy healing on pets. Tim also volunteered as the past president of the Humane Society of Forsyth County – a no-kill shelter. He enjoys spending time at home with his wife and their many pets in Cumming, Georgia
