Perryville pet boarder finds balance between life, business

Story for the MPW.67 here

Sept. 27, 2015

Through my studies at The Missouri School of Journalism I had the opportunity to volunteer at the Missouri Photo Workshop two years in a row. For my thrid year, I became the first recipient of the Ray Wong and Mardy Fones student scholarship, supporting me as a participant in the workshop. Under the guidance of Dennis Dimick and Beth Nakamura, I spent the week photographing Colette Germaud, a third generation pet boarder struggling with anxiety and the weight of her business.
