Geoff Lewit is the co-owner and co-creator of Brownstone Dog Walkers. Since childhood, he has been intrigued by animal behavior and more specifically, the bond between dogs and humans. After attending SUNY New Paltz and studying communications, Geoff took on a wide spectrum of activities including raising his first puppy (a Sharpei). After 2 years of working full time at Mohonk Mountain House (a national historic landmark hotel in New Paltz N.Y.), Geoff decided to return home to Brooklyn where he became and still is involved in the live music scene. Geoff became a dog walker in order to support his music and realized that dog walking was something he could pursue as a career. Since then he has helped raise 2 more pups to maturity and is ready to get moving with Brownstone Dog Walkers.
Heather Smith is a Canadian native who grew up in Connecticut. She has always loved animals and grew up with cats, fish, hamsters and a golden retriever. After graduating from a musical theatre college in Toronto, Canada, she returned to the states to pursue her career on the stage in NYC and moved to Park Slope, where she has lived for the past 3 years. She adopted a cat from the ASPCA upon moving to the city, and since she doesn't have a dog of her own, she is very excited to be able to spend time with the dogs of Park Slope. She loves the community of this neighborhood, and when she is not walking dogs, you can find her babysitting in Prospect Park or at one of her many favorite restaurants in the Slope.
