2017 Volunteer of the Year: Lynsey Smith

Lynsey Smith hit the ground running since joining Paws & Think in 2015. She has been an instrumental member of the Marketing Committee helping with writing articles for the eNewsletter, organizing outreach event including book drives, stress-relief events, adoption events, and more. She answers our phone messages, helps with database management, and she was a leader in implementing our new online calendar and Frequently Asked Questions page. Besides the behind-the-scenes work, she also helps with programing like volunteering at our therapy skills classes and evaluations and at evening care for our Youth-Canine Program. She even adopted a dog from the program, Stevie Licks! Lynsey is Kelsey’s right hand woman and helps whenever she is asked. She is the reason we have been able to get so much support from Ascension including being ready to rally the Ascension troops when we need it. Beyond her amazing accomplishments, Lynsey give 100% of her heart in the work she does with Paws & Think. Her can-do personality has made so much possible!
