A lifelong Peorian, Lindsey Reck has made her dreams come true at the young age of 24. After graduating from Dunlap High School and Bradley University, she landed a job with AmeriCorps, where she realized she needed to make her passion her profession. After much research, Pooch Couture began as a kiosk at Northwoods Mall last November, before moving to a storefront at Junction City in January of this year. When not stressing out over the latest doggie fashions, researching the healthiest pet food or helping dogs pick out their next favorite toys, Reck can be found relaxing with friends and family, reading a good piece of fiction, or catching up on the latest reality TV.
