Originally from the country-side of Tokyo, Japan, Chiaki had birds and fish as a child, but always loved and wanted a dog.
After moving to Detroit and getting married in 2000, she got her first dog Mickey, a Boxer. She then moved to Ohio to be closer to family.

Chiaki has two daughters and a Boston Terrier named Minnie. In her spare time she enjoys walking with Minnie and assisting her daughters with softball and crafts.

Chiaki's love for dogs has led her to Designer Paws Salon where she was trained to be a pet groomer in 2017. She has taken several Nash Academy classes.
