Piper Zuick
Piper Zuick
Chief Barketing Officer

As the newest member of the 360 Team, Piper Zuick is excited to take on her many duties as Chief Barketing Officer. Piper is well-versed in motivation and building social engagement. She enjoys boosting morale and is quite the team player, as evidenced by her unanimously being awarded Employee of the Month every month since joining the team. And rightly so, as she is a very good girl.

Piper is passionate about her duties, from alerting everyone when the mail has arrived, patrolling the office, and keeping a wary eye out for rogue squirrel invasions. A miniature Aussie-doodle with the mindset of a Great Dane, she is quite the guard dog. Piper is happy to walk the extra mile each day and literally jumps through (hula)hoops for this team!

Piper’s credentials are quite impressive, including formal education and agility training at Kennelwood Pet Resort. A continuous learner, Piper enjoys weekly swim lessons taught by her big brothers. Engaged in the community, Piper volunteers as the (un)official mascot for the school’s after-care program. In her free time, Piper enjoys car rides, spa days, family movie nights, and afternoon naps. She is a self-proclaimed foodie and is quite fond of the occasional gourmet snack.
