Who Worldwide Publication

Lowell, MI, June 01, 2017 --(PR.com)-- Karen A. Markel of Lowell, Michigan has been recognized as a
Woman of Excellence for 2017 by Strathmore's Who's Who Worldwide Edition for her outstanding
contributions and achievements for over 35 years in the field of canine breeding.

About Karen A. Markel


Ms. Markel is the Owner and CEO of Majestic View Kennels, which is a canine breeding company in
Michigan that breeds and sells Native American Indian Dogs (NAID) and mixes thereof for their
hypoallergenic traits and their wolf-like appearance. In 1979, she bred her first dog by mixing an English
Setter with a Brittney Spaniel in hopes of a low key bird hunting dog. The following year she mixed a
Treeing Walker with a Beagle for a long legged, rabbit dog to help her manage in the Michigan heavy,
chest-deep snow. Since that time, Ms. Markel has dedicated her years to trying to provide the ultimate
canine companion for humans. Her criteria includes hypoallergenic dog breeds that also have good looks,
dogs with a thinking and functioning problem-solving brain, dogs that can be used for therapy and as a
handicap assistance, good hunting dogs, competitive heavy draught pulling dogs, search and rescue dogs
and dogs with a better sense of smell than your average bloodhound. She has worked with Alaskan
Malamutes, Siberian Huskys, German Shepherds, Chinooks, Collies, and many other breeds. She has also
done extensive research, hunting, visiting animal shelters, and adopting dogs that she thought would
make the ideal, all around, versatile working dog that the Native Americans would have and could have
utilized in everyday life. Ms. Markel has since recreated dog breeds, two of which, the Native American
Indian Dog(R) and the Sibercaan(R) which have been registered with the United States Patent Trademark
Association. She has also spent time breeding horses and as a horse trainer and 4-H leader associate.

Born on February 6, 1953 in Michigan, Ms. Markel obtained an A.S. in Biology from Delta College in
1986 and is a registered and licensed phlebotomist. She is also registered with the National Kennel Club
as a certified dog conformation and show judge for numerous breeds. She has spent time breeding horses
and as a horse trainer. Ms. Markel considers herself a small-time philanthropist, donating money to the
needy and sponsoring individuals by paying their airfare to fly them from Ethiopia, Russia and the
Ukraine back to Israel, their native birthplace, and also provides food and medical supplies. She makes
homemade jewelry and donates it to families who have lost everything in fires, tornadoes and other
natural disasters. Widowed since 2004, Ms. Markel raised 2 children (her daughter is now deceased). Her
son, Geoffrey Nostrant currently resides in South Korea teaching English to 1100 middle school students,
the police department, fire and rescue employees and emergency medical staff in South Korea's hospitals.
He also has a recording studio, and was S. Korea's number one male actor.

In her spare time she enjoys horseback riding, singing, antiquing, and tapping maple trees to make maple
syrup, fudge and candy.

Ms. Markel states, I consider myself to be very blessed by my Creator to be given the stewardship of
creating and breeding these totally unique and profoundly unusual canine companions. I am simply a tool
on God's workbench, striving to do and follow God's bidding while creating and refining the perfect
