Portia (with Yumi and LeelooDallas)
Portia left the hectic world of internet marketing to join the Central Bark™ pack in 2006. From her pre-school days helping her next door neighbor - a Siberian husky breeder - to training with an Olympic equestrian trainer in her teens, Portia has been involved with large and small animals for her entire life. In fact, she reports that she can't remember a time in her life when she didn't have at least one four-legged creature to feed before her dinner!
After surviving the internet bubble burst in 2001, it was only a matter of time before she realized that she needed more than a few pixels on a page to keep her motivated. When she began searching in earnest for a business to help her realize her dreams of working with animals - and dogs in particular - she quickly decided a doggy day care - and Central Bark™ - was the way to go.
Portia is pictured with her two dogs, Yumi and LeelooDallas. Not in the picture are her two cats, a rotating population of exotic frogs and her husband, Anthony.
