Kate Speer - CEO

Kate Speer now enters her third year leading the team at The Dogist. An accomplished sales and marketing professional, she is known for her expertise in digital storytelling, social media strategy and narrative marketing and her unrivaled hustle. Over the course of the last two years, she has transformed The Dogist Instagram into a fully fledged mission-driven e-commerce company and media site. Though she feels The Dogist has many years of growth to go before making the impact she hopes for, she is thrilled to be leading the team as it tackles another year. When Kate is not running her team, she can be found in the woods of Vermont adventuring or advocating for the many health benefits of dogs - a gift she experiences first-hand through her partnership with her PTSD service dog, Wafflenugget everyday. Kate currently splits her time between New York and Norwich, Vermont where she owns a home with her husband, Dave Lutz. Kate graduated from Middlebury College in 2011 with a BA in Environmental Studies and Creative Art.
