Come listen to an impressive panel of Professionals from Central MN who have been part of establishing a successful business in the area. These individuals are the hustlers, dreamers, doers, movers, and shakers that have built brands and communities of their own. How did they do it? What did they learn? What advice do they have for others?
I graduated from SCTCC in Advertising and Design because they didn’t offer a degree in Animal Rescue but then again, nothing can prepare you for a side gig in animal rescue. My passion for animals was inherited from my late Grandpa Pat who once fixed a ducks leg with a popsicle stick. After having to explain to my husband what it all entailed to start a dog rescue, his only request was we start that adventure after our wedding. We got married on August 7 of 2015 and Grey Face Rescue launched on August 8th, 2015. I’ve been in this biz for 3 years, saved nearly 200 dogs and have provided well over $200,000 in veterinary care to give these senior dogs a second chance. When I’m not receiving an exceptional amount of smelly dog kisses, I’m at home with my kiddos (11 and 1), my husband, 3 cats and a dog, working full-time as a Marketing Director or blogging about being a stepmom on my blog Covered In Pet Furr.
