Surrounded by a PSDP banner and assorted educational materials laid out tastefully on a table, a woman with long brown hair laughs with smiling eyes at the camera. Notably, she has a small black and white dog in her lap, occluded by flyers in an acrylic stand. Even more notably, her face is painted in a silly, stylized way so that she looks like her dog!
