Jeff Voelpel grew up in Cincinnati and graduated from the University of Cincinnati
with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. After working for Kroger and
Federated Insurance, Jeff left the corporate world to pursue his passion in the
animal care industry. Jeff attended Melody Manor School of Dog Grooming in August
2002. He then opened K-9 Kamp in 2003 offering daycare and grooming. As business
at K-9 Kamp boomed, Jeff faced the danger of running out of space, and thus the
partnership opportunity with Terry Rath was appealing. Jeff is in charge of the
day-to-day operations at The Pet Spot.
It was during his work at K-9 Kamp that Jeff met his wife Erin. Together, they have
two beautiful daughters and two dogs (Capone and Diego/Rottweilers).
Terry Rath grew up in Indianapolis, IN and graduated from Indiana University
with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. He went on to earn a Master’s
degree in Business Administration from St. Louis University. Terry owned and operated
a scrap metal recycling yard in St Louis, MO from 1996 to 2001. He sold the business
in late 2001 and moved to Cincinnati, OH in February 2002 to work for The David
J. Joseph Company as Vice President, Metals Group, a position he holds today.
Terry is married to his wife Kate who is an IT specialist. Terry and Kate have two
daughters and one dog (Angus, a black Great Dane).
