LifePlan Financial Inc. team member Lewis

Public Relations

Lewis is an English Cream Golden Retriever. His resume lists his degrees in both Business and Marketing, although nobody ever bothered to verify the authenticity of those degrees. Nevertheless, his charming demeanor earned him his position as our Public Relations Specialist. It may have also been a blatant case of nepotism that landed him the job.

His hobbies include gourmet dining, swimming, napping in horse pastures, napping on the couch, napping on his bed, napping on the floor, napping on the job, and spending time with his sister Lily the Golden Retriever.
