Gerry Gestapo received her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from the University of Oregon. Throughout college, Gerry worked with a local veterinarian. She found this work enlightening and challenging. Upon graduating, Gerry knew that she wanted to work with animals. She considered dog obedience as a way of combining her love for dogs with her psychology degree. She moved to Portland and got a job at a large dog obedience school to gain experience in the field. While she was learning the ropes at the organization, Gerry did a lot of research on the subject recognizing that this was something that she wanted to pursue. After one year of work, Gerry felt that she had enough insight to open up her own school and began working on this business plan.
Gerry will be the sole employee.
