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 of the Wayland store.
Colby currently has no pets but enjoys borrowing friend's dogs for a run or walk at local conservation areas and dog parks. The most satisfying part of Colby's job is discussing nutrition with customers so they can make healthier choices when purchasing food and treats.
