    About Me

    I have always been a dog lover and have lived with a pack my entire adult life. So when the opportunity arose to build a Camp Bow Wow in Westlake, it was a perfect fit! I can bring my pups to work, be my own boss, and work with people who love dogs as much as I do. Before Camp, I worked in various positions, most recently as the Director of Human Resources in a small hospital system.

    Fun Facts

    What I love most about my job: I love our customers - both two and four legged ! And I love the fact that I am in a position to help homeless dogs by fostering for the local rescues. But probably the most rewarding aspect of Camp is seeing a shy, under-socialized dog become an outgoing, happy camper!

    My pets: Four rescue dogs: Beaker, Colby, Peppi & Iris the Bloodhound

    Camp Opened: March 2009
