Meet our Hippies!
Owner & CEO
Andrea Harris founded Hippie Hounds in December 2019. She has always had a deep love for dogs and spent her earlier years working as a dog trainer and handler. Andrea attended the Veterinary Technology program at Arkansas State University Beebe before launching her career in general practice. Her experience took her to several general practices, shelter medicine, critical care, and emergency. The highlight of Andrea's career took place in the summer of 2018. She traveled to Northwest University in Mahfikeng, South Africa to teach animal technician students. In her time there she lectured on client communication, performed vaccine outreach in local villages, and teamed up with the local SPCA to teach students how to train canines and change animal behavior through bridging the gap between human and animal communication.
Andrea is a certified veterinary cannabis counselor and a certified instructor with the American Association of Veterinary State Boards. She is an international speaker on veterinary cannabis and provides continued education for veterinary professionals. Hippie Hounds full-spectrum hemp tinctures are being utilized for an international clinical trial on atopic dermatitis at the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina (UFSC) in Brazil.
Stacy Dick, COO
"My name is Stacy Dick and I am a 23 year old who was born and raised in Arkansas. My journey with cannabis started when it became, quite literally, a life saver for my mothers Ulcerative Collitis. I sat forth on my path to educating myself and ended up getting a Masters of Marijuana certification through the Cannabis Training University in Colorado in 2017. I got the opportunity to move to Washington State in 2018 and knew I wanted to do something in the Cannabis Industry. I landed a job as a budtender with Floyd's Cannabis Co and ended up becoming a Certified Medical Marijuana Consultant through Seattle Central University. After my employment there I began working at Herba Cannabis, a cannabis farm in Washington. I plan on getting a Bachelor's Degree in Sustainable Hemp Business Management in the near future. I am excited to begin my new career with Hippie Hounds and discover what cannabis can do for all of our furry friends! "
