Ryan brings over 25 years of building successful cultures and developing leaders to Blue Heron Consulting. Ryan has held numerous leadership positions in a variety of retailers including Best Buy, Circuit City, Office Depot, and Petco. With an affinity for people development, Ryan has mentored numerous leaders throughout his career.

Ryan was raised an animal lover and grew up with multiple family dogs. Their impact on his childhood continued into his career. His time as a district manager at Petco helped him understand the need for educating pet parents. He realized there was a large knowledge gap within pet health; filling that gap gave him the sense of purpose that was missing in his career. Ryan was able to grow his market by offering products and services that pets need to live a healthier lifestyle, so that they have a better chance of living a longer life alongside those who cherish them. Having the opportunity to work in the veterinary industry has allowed Ryan to continue his passion for animal care in a more substantial capacity.

When not at work Ryan enjoys golfing, live music, and spending time with his family and his cats, Iris, Leia and Vader.
