Maureen Royer leaves her 13-year-old dog, Rubie, at home while she works every day, but she doesn't worry that the dog walker won't show up. Royer gets an email every time Rubie's dog walker arrives that tells her not only when the visit started, but the route the Boston terrier/pug mix will take for her stroll, how long the dog was out and when she returns home. "I know my dog is safe," Royer says. And that has made her trust Ashley Woodall, owner of See Spot Walk, even more than she did when they first started working together about a month ago. Woodall, whose business is based in Baltimore, uses an app called Pet Check to let her clients know when and where their dogs are walked.

Founder and president, Transforming Architecture, Highland transformingarchitecture.com What sparked your interest in your career field? I am a registered architect with almost 20 years of experience but have been an architect my whole life. Since I was little, I have always loved building things. I got my first Lego set when I was 6. I always built houses, including all the room layouts. Since they were never perfect, I would take it apart and start all over again. Architecture was the only profession possible for me. It is the only one that combines math, science and art. I love them all, and I think something would be missing if I weren't able to do all three.
