2017 Jim Barker Award - Patty Hasselbring

The 2017 recipient of the Jim Barker award is a woman who has tirelessly represented the suri industry at all levels, from welcoming newcomers into the fold with exceptional mentoring skills, to serving suri owners on the AOA board. 

Patty served the Suri Network as President from 2014 to 2016, a consummate professional who helmed the Suri Network through challenging times, leading us with grace and poise. She helped lead the way to a complete overhaul of the Suri Network Breed Standard during her tenure, and began negotiations with AOA for their use of our standard as the AOA standard as well.

Patty was elected to the AOA board in 2017, and she is looking forward to representing suri owners in that capacity.
