Originally from the east coast, Kath spent 3 years working and hiking extensively in the Italian Alps. Golden, CO was the clear choice for her new home, as she couldn’t resist its proximity to the mountains. These days, anyone who knows Kath, knows where to find her at 5am every morning….doing what she loves, hiking in the great outdoors with her guy Malcolm & their 2 dogs Henry & LuLu.
Throughout her highly successful corporate sales career, she honed her ability to connect with people. Her attention to detail and customer satisfaction resulted in long term relationships with her clients. But as a busy professional & dog parent, Kath found it difficult to provide her dogs with the attention and exercise they deserved and needed when her work schedule caused her to be away from home.
Her extensive business background combined with her enthusiasm for the care and health of dogs, has driven Kath to co-found Hike Doggie. She has spent several years immersed in dog education, including Dog Behavior, Dog Language & Dog Group Play. She is a Certified Dog Walker (CDW) and holds certifications in Pet CPR & Pet First Aid.
Kath also enjoys snow-shoeing, picnicking in the mountains, reading & walking dogs at a local dog shelter. If she had to pick a favorite pastime it would be hosting Colorado style lunch & dinner gatherings with her family, friends and…LOTS & LOTS OF DOGS.
