Roxie

Chief Barking & Security Pawficer

My job is to keep the office staff in check and keep the Tulip team focused on me. I may bark, jump on you, or even ask you to rub my belly. I don't let a crumb hit the floor and never turn down a treat! I occasionally show up for meetings but mostly nap. I love to be at the center of every strategy meeting and play with my neighborhood puppy friends, Savannah, and Brie’s fluffy puppy, Leia. My sisters, Kate & Lily, are always with me if they aren’t at school or soccer. I take my pawficer role very seriously and serve as the daily welcoming and farewell committee.
