Krissie Newman was concerned that whenever she gets around Mike Arms, executive director of the Helen Woodward Animal Center, and other animal welfare advocates, she comes home armed with bigger plans and a “can do” spirit that overwhelms her husband NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Ryan Newman.
Krissie’s spirit is huge, and with extra encouragement, she is a force that knows no bounds.
Krissie and Ryan founded the Ryan Newman Foundation in 2005 with the goal of educating and encouraging people to spay/neuter their pets and to adopt dogs and cats from animal shelters; to educate children and adults about the importance of conservation; and to provide college scholarship funding through the Rich Vogler Scholarship program to students interested in auto racing careers.
I heard Krissie speak about marketing, social media, and community education to an audience of bloggers at BlogPaws. The seminar was a shortened version of the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s ACES (Animal Center Education Services) program. It is a free program that teaches animal welfare workers how to run an effective animal welfare center.
Following is part of Krissie’s talk about community education.
