I was born and raised in Muskegon, Michigan
In 1980 I went to work for my mother who owned her own Pet Grooming Salon. I started out just bathing dogs. After doing that for a while my mother handed me the clippers and said "start clipping" and that's how i learned grooming. When she retired she sold the business to me and i ran the salon for 20 years.
After 20 years i felt it was time to quit. I sold the business and moved to Florida. I had no intentions of grooming again but as things happen an opening came available in July 2009 and i accepted it.
Everyone here is nice to work with. The doctors are very caring about the clients and their pets. They treat them like they are family. It is very nice to see that.
I have 2 dogs. A black/ tan weiner dog who is 9 years old and a fawn/white boxer 2 years old.
