An ambassador is someone who shares in a mission and helps support it every step of the way. Each year, BlogPaws selects a group of pet bloggers as ambassadors to the conference. They are chosen for their professionalism and talent, and this year’s group is no exception in their exceptionalism!
Please welcome your 2018 BlogPaws Conference Ambassadors (in alphabetical order):
Jenise Carl is sidekick and best friend to her happy-go-lucky Goldendoodle, Chloe. The team of two (pup and pet parent) are the hands and paws behind Happy-Go-Doodle, a blog and brand of feel-good quotes, quips, and cuteness for people who love dogs and believe they bring out the best in us. Through Happy-Go-Doodle, Jenise hopes to share as much joy with others as Chloe shares with everyone she meets. Their brand slogan? Fetch Joy™. After receiving the award for Best New Pet Blog at the 2017 BlogPaws conference in Myrtle Beach, Jenise returned home to Kansas City where the duo celebrated their favorite way…endless games of fetch. Jenise is also a brand strategist and communications consultant specializing in the pet industry and small business. She is passionate about building brands and bringing people together through messages that inspire, connect, and motivate.
