  • Hudson
    Hudson Office Manager

    Hudson was born and raised in Colorado and loves the mountain, but he is a bona fide water dog and loves the beach too.  Hudson has been hiking with his parents, Jenn & Brandon, ever since he was a youngster.  Hudson enjoys traveling by car, train, or airplane and has many destinations stamped on his puppy passport.  Since it is not practical to leave the mountains and fly to the beach all the time during the winter, Hudson discovered Jasper’s Splash Zone.  It is here that he learned the profession of Dock Diving.  Hudson trains every weekend and competes in the Dock Diving event at the Go Pro Mountain Games in Vail, CO.  Hudson just loves it and he’s become quite the competitor. 

    Hudson’s escapades continue as embarks on two new adventures:  obtaining his Canine Good Citizenship certification and becoming a big brother to Greyson, his little human brother.  The Good Citizenship Program is designed to reward dogs who have good manners at home and in the community.  Hudson also takes his job at Brightway Insurance very seriously.  He goes to work everyday and greets customers while overseeing the other Brightway employees.  Hudson loves cheese, belly rubs, and having the ball thrown in the park behind the office too.  Hudson would love to meet you if you stop by for an insurance quote!
