  • The Green Spot

    By Daisy Hutzell-Rodman

    Glenwood native Jessica (Kamish) Ellis’ business, The Green Spot in Omaha, is a labor of love.

    The natural pet food business came easily to Ellis.

    “Her first words were not mama or dada, they were doggie, doggie, doggie,” said her mother, Dr. Jacque Young of Glenwood.

    That natural instinct for pets, and a head for business, was recognized this past May, when the young company was awarded the Small Business Association’s Small Business of the Year Award for Nebraska’s Second District.
