Since moving back to the midwest from San Francisco 18 years ago with her Pugs, Jaclyn has been previously involved at the executive level for two companies that sell consumer products worldwide. A writer and philanthropist at heart, she has always wanted to create a product line that is Entertaining & Educational for pets and their loving humans.
“In the last 22 years not a day has gone by when one of my Pugs or one of the many kids I’ve mentored, has not made me smile simply by looking at them. I am finally able to combine my passion for animals and the people who love them.”
Kyrstin has earned a BFA in Media Arts and Animation, and currently works as a freelance artist. She has collaborated on a wide array of projects outside of Pug Story, including TV storyboards, character concepts, traditional paintings, and graphic design. A dog owner her entire life, Kyrstin resides in the Chicago suburbs, and is the happy owner of a Shiloh Shepherd named Blade.
