Welcome Ashley Schmitz to the team!

Ashley will be starting March 2nd as the Backyard Boarding and Playcare's manager

Hello, my name is Ashley Schmitz. I grew up in the Perham community and after graduating from UW-Stout with my bachelor of science in Merchandising and Management I moved back to this great community with my husband, Jonnie. When I’m not at work I enjoys spending time with my own fur babies, volunteering at the animal shelter, teaching dance and enjoying the lake in the summer. On top of having my own dogs I have been volunteering at the local shelter for five years. We also fostered numerous dogs over this time and have helped countless dogs find their forever homes. Dogs are my passion and I am so excited to have this opportunity to work with them every day.
