I believe that pet grooming is an art. I have been grooming since 2001, but as with any groomer, my years of experience can be just a number. You need to have a natural ability or artistic eye that can be enhanced by grooming schools or on job training. I learned techniques and skills early on, from years of personal training, in order to provide quality and safe grooming that reduce stress on pets and their groomers.
I believe that each dog is distinct. Pets have different personalities and temperaments that need to be accommodated. Therefore, I do my best to provide an individual approach to the care of each animal and their needs. It is my goal to make sure your pet feels as comfortable as possible in my care. Please let me know of any special needs your pet may have.
I believe in continuous education. I believe in continuous education. While I was a grooming manager at a well-known big box retailer, I started my undergraduate and graduate degrees in accounting. I chose to unify my knowledge and love of working with animals, along with the art of grooming. Additionally, I attend dog shows, and have set up informational sessions with veterinarians to obtain knowledge on pet care and techniques. I intend to continue my education in the grooming industry regarding safety and styling.
I believe in giving back. As a child, I spent my summers on farms spending countless hours with animals and nature. I am thrilled to be able to spend time taking care of animals while reducing my environmental impact when possible. My other interests include: hiking, gardening, carpentry, and fishing.
