About The Dog Face Team - Meet Jess!


Jess joined our team in September, 2016
Group Training Class Assistant

Hey There! My name is Jess. I am a Madison native with passion to create a great community. My education has focused on people and recreation, but animals have always been an important part of my life. I earned my bachelor's degree from UW Madison in Community and Environmental Sociology and studied human/environmental interactions in Mexico, Ecuador and Costa Rica. This led to an amazing adventure researching whales and turtles and then pursuing a master's degree in Recreation. 

I think play and recreation is an essential component to a happy life....and I can't think of a better way to spend play time than with my dog!  Dog Face classes have been an incredible asset to training my own dogs and finding new ways to build our bond and burn some energy! I'm very excited to expand my work to our furry community members and their families as a member of the Dog Face Team!!

My husband and I have 3 dogs - Hilo (Havanese), Ojai (Lab/Elkhound) and Thea (Lab Mix) and 2 kitties (litter mates) Coral and Baja.
