I started my career as a food scientist in 1992. I have been involved in pet food product development, quality assurance, manufacturing, and ingredient supply for over 21 years. Early in my career, I realized the responsibility of pet food manufacturers to manufacture safe, nutritious, and tasty pet food. Our pets are reliant on us for the food they are fed. As a pet parent myself for many years, I recognize the role I can play in making a positive and meaningful contribution to the industry.
