I have been passionate about animals for as long as I can remember. Currently, I have a miniature zoo at home, with 3 dogs (Gunner, Dozer, and Kida) and 3 cats (Goofnut, Gimli, and Cleo). When I'm not working or tending to my pets, I enjoy spending time at the fishing cabin or planning tent camping trips.
My journey into the world of animals began with my first job as a bather at a small grooming shop in my neighborhood. I fell in love with the work and knew that I wanted to pursue a career working with dogs. After graduating from high school in May of 2014, I took some time to figure out my best course of action and eventually discovered Animal Behavior College. This program allowed me to become a certified groomer by September of 2015, helping me take my first step into the pet industry. Over the years, I've worked at various boarding facilities and grooming salons, gaining valuable experience.
Fast forward to February of 2021, and I found my way to Countryside Pet Resort. Here, I take pride in being a leader for our kennel and daycare attendants. My role as their supervisor is to ensure they meet our expectations and have fun while doing so. This includes ensuring that every pet under our care is happy, healthy, and comfortable while away from home. I truly enjoy getting to know each pet and owner, building a strong bond with them.
When it comes to grooming, I am proficient in all low-maintenance style grooms as well as more detailed grooms. I believe in being honest about my abilities, so if you are looking for breed-specific grooms involving cocker spaniels, westies, and some schnauzers, I would not be the groomer for you. I eagerly look forward to working with new clients and am committed to creating a beautiful finished look for your pet.
