One happy Goldendoodle: The inspiration

Inspired by Chloe, a 9-year-old happy-go-lucky Goldendoodle, our vision is to celebrate and nurture the bond between dogs and the people who love them. We hope to share as much joy with others as Chloe shares with us.

Our brand promise is simple and founded on what Chloe and our fun-loving four-legged companions do best: Fetch Joy®.

If you’d like to know a little more about the other half of the team behind Happy-Go-Doodle®, I’m Chloe’s sidekick—the one holding the other end of the leash on our dog-loving adventures. I’ve dedicated the last 10 years to learning everything I can about helping Doodle dogs (and their parents) enjoy a more joyful life.

In addition to imagining what’s next for our blog and lifestyle brand, I’m a marketing communications consultant, mom, and dog mom. My professional background is in communications and product innovation, but I grew up making mud pies under a big oak tree and running through alfalfa fields on the family farm. As a child, my pets were the heroes in all of my outdoor adventures. Today, dogs are still my heroes.

After 20+ years of experience creating emotionally-relevant content for a major social expression corporation, I envisioned a new path—one where I could have my dog by my side. Now, in addition to creating all the content for Happy-Go-Doodle®, I also serve as Editor-in-Chief for an award-winning veterinary dog blog, Dr. Buzby’s Bark. 

My accolades include receiving a BlogPaws award for best new pet blog, multiple Dog Writers Association of American Maxwell nominations and an award, and editing a best-selling humor book. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in journalism and media graphics from Drake University and am a member fo the Dog Writers Association of America. 

Together my Goldendoodle dog and I are the hands and paws behind Happy-Go-Doodle®.
