It was a HUGE honor to have been named a “Women of Influence” in the March issue of Pet Age Magazine!! Every day I feel so grateful to work in a profession and industry that I love so much! I often shy away from attention, but I thought it would be fun to share my complete interview with Pet Age Magazine with you here… Thanks again, Pet Age Magazine editors and staff!! You really made my day! -Kerry Pet Age: What inspired you to get into the pet industry? Kerry: Working with animals inspired me to get into the pet industry, and working with pet industry people keep me in this industry.

We sustain long-term, successful client relationships because of our very personalized approach to PR that ultimately produces meaningful results. When we’re successful, our clients are successful. And, when our clients’ businesses grow- that grows the industry as a whole. Pet Age: What is something you are totally passionate about and why? Kerry: Since launching this agency in 2012, I’ve worked hard to curate a repertoire of emerging and global brands that my team and I are truly passionate about. We only work with brands we are obsessed with; brands [...]
