Nancy graduated from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa with a degree in Marketing and found herself in the world of promotional products where she met her husband of six years. They adopted their first dog in 2007 and Nancy never looked back. She delved into training and dog behavior research, realizing her dream of working with dogs. In March of 2013, she completed a six month behavior and training program at CanineLink, and she enjoys agility classes with her lab. Nancy also volunteers at the Marshall County Humane Society in Indiana and works closely with the director placing dogs in rescue groups. She is currently the Executive Director of PPAChicago, a non-profit regional trade association for the promotional products industry. When she is not working, Nancy enjoys reading for her book club, cooking, athletics and spending time in Indiana at her lake house.
