Going to the Dogs: The Dog and I, LLC
Carlson, Priscilla
Exceptional Parent, v38 n10 p20-21 Oct 2008
How do you go from being a successful mechanical engineer or the manager of an optical store to giving up the security of those positions and caring for man's best friend? Just ask the mother and daughter team of Diane Holstein and Lisa Ferrerio, co-owners of The Dog and I. Everyone has the dream of doing a job they love, but not everyone can make that happen. To compound the difficulty of the situation, Lisa was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (O.I., or brittle bones) and uses a manual wheelchair for mobility. This article profiles Lisa who, despite disabilities and tragedies, was able to turn her dream of developing her business, a daycare and hotel for canines, into reality, and thus proving that even those with a disability as precarious as O.I. can successfully manage a business.
