I started simply, washing dogs for a local grooming salon and then moving on to an apprenticeship. Under the guidance of an amazing Master groomer I found my niche. With my God-given artistic strengths and love of all things furry, grooming was it! Work really doesn’t seem like “work” when you are passionate about it. For the last 18 years I’ve challenged myself to improve- not only in technical skills, but to also give the best care to each pet that I have the pleasure of working with. They are all such unique individuals, and I love figuring out their personality traits and quirks. I value having a trusting relationship with both pet and pet parent. It hands-down just makes my day if I can put a smile on someone’s face when they get to see their freshly groomed family member. I am glad to be part of the staff here at Carver Lake!
