"I have 17 years of experience grooming all breeds of dogs and cats. I've acquired skills in clipper cuts, hand scissor cuts, stripping coats, and know how to get the look that fits the pet. Understanding what the client wants and communicating what is best for the pet are my priorities. I have worked extensively with special needs pets: senior pets, pets with physical challenges, and puppies that require gentle hands but also need to learn how to be groomed! My experience in both mobile and salon situations allows me to accommodate the needs of all sorts of dogs and cats. I enjoy attending informational seminars that keep me up to date on pet nutrition and health, and regularly attend and certify in breed style classes. Learning from other professionals has given me a wide variety of handling and grooming skills. And, of course, I am pet CPR and First Aid certified."
