Our Team

Lori Schnabel | Founder of fetch! Sioux Falls Pet Magazine
Lori is a Sioux Falls born and raised graphic designer and pet enthusiast. In 2010 the dream of fetch! Sioux Falls Pet Magazine became a reality.  Prior to the launch of fetch!, Lori received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of South Dakota.
When her dream of forming a pet magazine began, her family dog Tucker, and her dog Nellie, a Cocker Spaniel/Bichon mix known for her mischievous antics, were her inspiration.
She enjoys overseeing the production of quarterly editions of fetch!, planning fundraising events for local non-profit animal organizations and participating in community or networking events. When Lori is not working, you can find her and her dog, Nellie, hiking at our area parks or trying a new craft idea.
Jodi Hoyt | Account Manager
Jodi is a Minnesota kid, hailing from the small town of Milaca, MN. She brings a diverse background to the fetch! team, including a music degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and a business administration degree from the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND. She has worked for eight years in the pet industry so it’s no surprise her house is often referred to as the “Hoyt Family Zoo.”
 Jodi and her husband, Nathan, have been married for nearly ten years. In her spare time, she likes to spend her time outdoors. You can find her hitting the pavement with her five-year-old German Shepherd mix, Bergen; taking leisurely walks with Bergen and her canine siblings 11-year-old border collie mix, Grace and 9-year-old terrier mix, Jake; riding her motorcycle; golfing; or heading to the family lake home on Prairie Lake in Minnesota.
