Store Manager and Part Business Owner
Grooming is not just a profession for me, I am a true lover of animals at heart. From the time I was a little girl, i felt a special connection to animals. Dogs aren't just animals to me, they are true friends and I've called them that from as long as I can remember. It's no surprise that I ended up working animals. It was truly something I was meant to do. After years of working my way through school in the food service or doing other odd jobs, I took a job as a kennel assistant at a vet hospital in San Dimas. I worked with equine and small animals alike. I soon apprenticed at that hospital, became a vet tech and learned to do exams, shots, bandage wounds and help the veterinarian with surgeries. Some time later I began mobile grooming with a master groomer from San Dimas. I continued with my vet tech career but wanted to do something more creative. When I began training to be a groomer I knew that was my true calling. I love going to work every day, being creative and connecting with clients. Caring for animals and seeing their health progress through proper hygiene. Making just that small difference every day truly warms my heart.
I have always had a soft spot for animals, especially dogs. When I was younger my family owned lizards, turtles and cats so I was always surrounded by animals as a little girl. My career as a dog groomer started out as a bather and from then on was trained as a groomer and my love for grooming grew immensely. I'm so lucky to work with all types of dogs every day make sure the clients fur babies are as comfortable and as happy as possible while they are in my hands.
We have an amazing team of people here who work together as a team to make sure every dog has the best day ever, each and every day.
