Meet the Team




Chewy, Chief Napping Officer here at PowerApps911, is the world’s best dog at building Power Apps and Flows. How did he achieve such an amazing level of success at only 3 years old? Osmosis. Chewy has spent the majority of his life sleeping at the feet of Shane absorbing as much as possible. When Chewy isn’t doing what he does best, making apps and taking naps, you can find him taking short walks or eating. You don’t get to be a 105-pound doodle without a lot of effort.
