Carol Smock is a CRM Consultant with Microsoft Gold Partner, Tribridge. She currently lives just outside Phoenix AZ and enjoys traveling with and without her pups, Toffee Nut and Beignet. She cooks for her Wine Club twice a year - creating a multi-course wine dinner to pair with wines her friends want to showcase. She loves databases, wine and dogs... not necessarily in that order!
While the story of "Brown Dog" is about Chocolate Chip, Carol credits Buster with reigniting her passion for dogs. Despite his anxiety, Carol always seemed to calm the gentle giant. He was just a little misunderstood by most, but found a connection with Carol. If Buster hadn’t been lost to her, Carol may never have sought the companionship of Chip.
Carol divides her time between working full-time and volunteering with the Foundation. She plans fundraising campaigns and events, represents the Foundation at expos where they educate pet owners about insurance, alternative treatments and more. She processes all of the grants right now, sometimes spending upwards of 3-4 hours trying to help people find alternatives. Carol expects to re-dedicate herself to growing Brown Dog Foundation during her retirement years.
