I always say that my pup "accidentally" became Insta-famous.
Don't get me wrong - it took PLENTY of time and effort, but more on that later!
When we brought Hammy home, we never expected any of this to happen.
What started as a fun way to share pictures of our new puppy quickly took on a life of its own.
I realized I need to learn all the ins and outs of Instagram - ASAP!
The only problem? I had no idea where to turn for advice!
If I had known everything that I know about Instagram now
at the beginning of my journey,
I would have spent a lot less time trying any idea I could think of,
and a lot more time actually hanging out with my pup!
Who am I?
I'm Courtney - a first time dog mom, momager of @hammyand.me, an educator by trade, and a self-taught Instagram strategist.
Just like you, I'm so obsessed with my puppy that I want the whole world to see how cute he is.
I grew Hammy's Instagram account to over 25k followers in a little over 8 months - and I fell in love with the online dog community along the way!
Coaching is what I do!
With a B.A. in Psychology and a M.S. in Counseling, I've spent my career helping people create goals and work towards them.
I've worked with dozens of people come up with a personalized Instagram strategy to propel their beloved pup's account to Insta-fame.
