Our Shawn is a native Californian who got her degree from Fullerton in criminal justice. As a West Coast girl at heart, she came a long way to Connecticut, but she has been here for 22 years now, so she’s pretty well acclimated! Shawn is Poochie-Pets’ people person. She met Cheryl, our president and owner, many years ago when their daughters were in the same elementary school. Shawn has now been with Poochie-Pets for eight years.
Working in the Pet World
“As the sales liaison at the office who has direct contact with all of our 2,000 plus accounts, I get to meet different people all the time. With Poochie-Pets being 10 years old, we’ve had the opportunity to create relationships with people all over the world. I particularly love working in the pet industry because the people in it are really great; they are interested in getting to know you personally. And of course I love the team here at Poochie-Pets! My favorite product we make is the dry sponge; it is so awesome, it cleans up all the dog hair in my house and car, and it’s reusable.”
Shawn leads a full life—aside from a busy work schedule, she enjoys being very active in her church and spending Sundays with her grandson. She and her husband live with their Border-Terrier Basset Hound mix Haysea. Shawn modestly says “I’m a normal person,” but we couldn’t function without her!
