CEO & Co-founder

Where do you live?
I’m originally from Virginia, I now call Murfreesboro, TN home.

Why are you involved in
The idea of providing a vehicle to ease the pain of others and provide some comfort during a stressful time was my motivation. How many times in life are we given that opportunity?

What would you say you have learned from your pets?
Wow, that’s a heavy question. I believe pets help children comprehend responsibility for starters. From that point on the bond is developed and the unconditional love develops. I still have problems catching a Frisbee in my mouth.

Do you have any pets now? Tell us about them?
I have a mix of a Jack Russell and a Beagle. I call him a Brussle. His name is Buck and he enjoys watching the Redskins and listening to live music.

I also have a cat named Jinx, besides being Buck’s best buddy, Jinx likes to bring home “gifts” such as moles and the like. I think it’s hilarious how cocky a cat can get!

What have you done in the past that has brought you to this point?
Lived, loved and laughed.

Who is your role model?
My father will always be my role model. He treated everyone with respect and dignity. My two sisters have taught me that faith, love and hard work can conquer anything the world can throw at you.

Do you have a quote that describes how you see the world?
After thinking about this question and quotes from Albert Einstein to John Lennon…I can honestly say I don’t, and if I did it would change quite often.
