Charity Profile: Puppies Behind Bars

Combs & Co Logo 11-16 (2)This December, Combs & Company, LLC decided to show some love to different charities that are making a different in our community and in the world.  Our first feature is Puppies Behind Bars. Founded in 1997, Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement.  Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 24 months.  As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it. PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year.  The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve.

What’s the good news, ladies? Mentorship!

GoodNewsMarch2017

Very excited to share this month’s installment of “What’s the Good News, Ladies?”  This month you get to meet three women who are very near and dear to my heart. These are three women that I have had the pleasure of mentoring in my career, and I would have never met them if it wasn’t through the opportunities I received in volunteer leadership in serving on the National Board of Directors for Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS).

I have always felt passionately about mentorship — no one in this industry got to where they are today without the assistance of someone looking behind and helping to pull them up. I continue to have amazing mentors and advocates in my career, and I have chosen to pay it forward by mentoring others.

Click here to let me introduce you to Mary, Krystyl and Ashleigh, three bright stars that I am happy to call mentees, colleagues and most of all friends!
