Colby grew up with dogs and horses. She worked for fifteen years in the horse industry teaching, training, and showing horses. In September of 2007 she decided to take a break from riding and began working retail at Especially for Pets in Wayland. In 2010, she became assistant manager and shortly thereafter became manager. She currently manages the Shrewsbury store.
Colby is mom to Betti, who was rescued from the Dominican Republic. The most satisfying part of Colby's job is discussing nutrition with customers so they can make healthier choices when purchasing food and treats.
