Growing up, I always wanted a dog and love animals. In 2021, I started volunteering at HAWS and fell in love with that world. In 2022, I got my first dog name Sumomo, a senior Shiba Inu. I met her while volunteering and felt an immediate connection. In college, I went to UW-Stout for Graphic and Multimedia design. While there, I worked for the school’s website and photo studio. After graduation, I found myself in product design and development and did a variety of tasks. After being there for 10 years, I left that world to try a new challenge and join the “new” animal world that I have been passionate about. It has been fun learning all about dog training and canine sports.
Why I Love My Job
I love the variety of projects I get to work on. Designing new graphics for the website and emails is probably one of my favorite tasks. It is really fun to come up with new marketing events that both make clients smiles and also give back to the community. I also enjoy photographing and filming dogs because I love seeing how happy they are while at Think Pawsitive, and I usually get a bunch of kisses as a bonus.
