Angie grew up in a small-town country home where she was surrounded by animals. She grew up with a love for dogs and became passionate about their well-being. Her early career led her to the Twin Cities, where she spent several years in the legal industry as a paralegal at a downtown Minneapolis law firm. Her business mindset led her to a change of pace when she co-founded Deckci Décor, a company that provides event décor and planning for hundreds of weddings and events each year.
Opening The Woof Room was a long-term dream for Angie, as she is able to utilize her business skill set while pursuing her love of dogs. When she is not at The Woof Room or decorating events, Angie can often be found walking her Yorkie-Poo, Westin, around one of the area lakes with her husband Joe.
