NOTE THIS TALK WAS RESCHEDULED FROM APRIL 16 TO MARCH 28. Dogs have always been a part of Cindy Dunston Quirk's life. Cindy was successful in sales and marketing after completing her Bachelor’s in Marketing from Georgia State University. It was gratifying, but her creative side was itching to get out and run. Cindy turned heavily to writing as a professional wordsmith and editor, forming her creative firm in Anderson, Indiana. In 2009, she made another pivot that combined her business, marketing, and creative skills. Her German Shepard’s allergies inspired her, and she founded her pet treat company, Scout & Zoe’s. Her products, naturally shed elk antler treats and chews, are now available in over 10,000 pet stores across the globe. It’s a dog’s life, and Cindy wouldn’t have it any other way.
