Lacie Nyenhuis, General Manager and Director of Operations

LaceyWith DAP since 2006

Hi, I’m Lacie! I was born in Charlotte, North Carolina, but I call Wadesboro my hometown, after moving there when I was about eight years old. As a young girl and well into my teens, my dream was to become a vet. I have always been an animal lover, and wanted to dedicate my life to helping any and all of this world’s interesting creatures. However, after a couple of years of studying at UNCW, I began to feel that being a veterinarian was maybe not my calling after all. I stuck with my major (Biology), knowing that I still wanted to pursue a career in the animal/environmental field. Then, the summer before my senior year, fate struck! My Nana showed me an ad in the newspaper… Dogs At Play was looking to hire a play yard attendant. I remember thinking “what an awesome job that would be!” And I was right! I worked here part-time through the rest of college, graduated with a B.S. in Biology in 2007, and then became a full-time DAP employee. Needless to say, DAP became very near and dear to my heart, as I have been here to greet you and your pups for over a decade! I am, and always will be, forever grateful for this business, it’s owner, it’s staff, it’s customers, and all of its many K-9 kids for helping me grow in so many ways!
