Dr. Christine Beck has been in the animal industry for over 20 years, and is a successful business owner in multiple industries.

She is a passionate visionary who just recently launched Waggle Mail, a filler-free subscription box for dogs and their humans that contains vet-curated information and products to support dog’s health and wellbeing, no matter their stage in life. Her vision is to build a community of empowered dog owners taking the best care of their dogs.
