Meet Our Team
Our Barkologists play an integral role on the Shift•ology team, whether it’s protecting the human Shifters from the perils of Springfield (i.e. the UPS man or our maintenance guy) with their ferocious barks or helping us to get in the right frame of mind with a relaxing snuggle sesh on the white couches during a brainstorm. Chances are, one of these fur babies will be here if you ever stop by our office, so be sure to have some dog treats and a lint brush on hand!
