Using traditional farming and modern science to create simple solutions to complex problems
For the past 15+ years Kathy has enjoyed working alongside her daughters, Chelsea Kent and Logynn Hailley, to build Hero’s Pets into a prosperous, thriving business. Through hard work, passion and diligence, they’ve been very successful business owners and are now ready to take it to the next level with Solutions Pet Products.
Over the span of Kathy’s personal career, she developed strong project management, IT and management skills. Kathy has extensive experience with business administration, large scale fundraising and IT administration. She gained a wide range of these skills from working at National Jewish Medical & Research Center in various positions over 26 years. Kathy is a high-level operational problem solver.
In her free time Kathy likes to apply those problem solving and project management skills to making ambitious travel plans to see the world a reality for her family.
Kathy looks forward to the new challenge of building Solutions Pet Products into something great! She wants to make a difference in this world and Solutions Pet Products has all the right “ingredients” to do that!
Roxanne earned her bachelor and master’s degree in nutrition and food science with a minor in chemistry from Utah State University. She worked in the human food industry for 12 years before becoming disenchanted with the conventional practices of the corporate food industry and the use of confinement animal feeding operations. Her desire to contribute to organic and sustainable agriculture led her to leave the corporate food industry in 2004 to start Cascadia Food Consulting, an independent food and nutrition consulting company. As a consultant, she could better support the growth of biodynamic, organic and regenerative small family farms along with traditional agricultural practices based on pasture centered livestock. Roxanne made the transition to the pet food industry when her sister Jacqueline asked her to consult for their newly founded family pet food company. Roxanne was responsible for product formulations, ingredient sourcing, research and development, overseeing manufacturing, product education and quality assurance. To further the acceptance of raw pet foods within the regulatory arena, she attends the yearly AAFCO meetings, to represent and advocate for raw pet food manufacturers. Roxanne is a member of the Animal Welfare Institute. Also, the Weston A. Price Foundation and Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund, which are dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the American diet through education, research and activism. Roxanne resides in Eugene, Oregon with her husband and their two Alaskan Malamutes, Ame and Tsuki where they enjoy camping, hiking and skiing in the local mountains.
Angela comes to us from Austin, Texas via Mississippi, Louisiana, and Middle Tennessee! She relocated to Colorado in 2018 to make her life all about dogs. Angela has a graduate degree in Music Education and was a Director of Bands for several years before exploring new experiences in the animal industry.
She loves pet nutrition and holistic approaches to health and wellness. After working as an Education and Training Specialist for Hero’s Pets, a raw food specialty boutique for cats and dogs, she has seen firsthand how diet can not only improve but extend the life of dogs and cats. Angela decided to take a permanent commitment to pet health by gaining experience as a Veterinary Practice Manager and co-owner of ParsleyPet.
