About Central Bark Jacksonville

Mark is a 22-year veteran of the United States Marines and has lived in Jacksonville for 25 years. During Mark’s tenure in the Marines, he served in many places both in the Continental United States and overseas. After retiring from the Marines in 2005, he worked for Randstad North America, one of the largest staffing companies in the world. His most recent position was Regional Vice President for their In-house Services Division where he managed accounts throughout Florida and South Georgia.

Mark became a Central Bark Franchisee because of his love for all animals, specifically dogs. Mark’s goal as a Central Bark owner is to give back to non-profit rescue animal organizations in the Jacksonville community as a testament to the dogs who have given so much to him and his family.

Mark is the proud parent of three daughters; Rebecca, Rachel, and Kori. His daughters are all grown and parents to their children or fur babies. Mark has two puppies Riley, a 10-year-old Mini Australian Shepherd; Monty a 4-year-old mixed breed rescue, and cat siblings, Tom and Quincy.
