Name: Kari Solberg
Profession: Entrepreneur / dog trainer
Biography: Politics was never in the plan for me. I grew up in a low-income family that believed only the wealthy and predestined were capable of filling those positions. As I've grown and become more involved in my local community, though, I've realized that us "normal" everyday people are the ones that absolutely should be in office. Those of us that have personal experience in the trenches of life and understand that our government is not meant to be over the people, but by and for the people.
I came to Colorado from Oregon 17 years ago for college at Johnson & Wales University in Denver and never looked back. In 2015, I chose Douglas County as home and the place I wanted to open my first business. I started K-9 State of Mind as a small in-home business and quickly grew it into a successful dog boarding and training facility in the heart of Parker. Regretfully in 2020, I made the decision to close the doors to that facility and pivoted into other ventures as many of us had to do in pandemic times. I currently work for a dog training facility in Colorado Springs and do consulting and mentorship for trainers across the country.
I am running for office because I am deeply concerned for not just our community, but our country as a whole. If nothing else, I want to be an example that will encourage our next leaders to step out of the shadows and do something.
