As a long-time animal lover, I have always groomed my own critters, clipping fur and toenails, cleaning ears, and a whole lot of bathing and brushing. I currently have four large-breed All-American dogs, all rescues: Baxter, a St. Bernard mix; Tessa and Nelson, Samoyed mixes; and Bentley, a Black Labrador mix. I have been lucky enough to share my life with many other animals, both as family members and as foster care. In addition to my beloved dogs, I have hosted a varied menagerie, from cats and birds to iguanas.
I am a graduate of the Animal Behavior College and ABC Certified Groomer. I have been a foster parent to dogs and adopted from the Milo Foundation. In addition, I have been a volunteer groomer with Tri-Valley Animal Rescue during the East Bay Stand Down to groom the pets of homeless and at-risk military veterans
Born and raised in California, I am happily married and have called Livermore my home for over 25 years. I started out my working career as a medical/dental assistant, then worked in architecture for 28 years.
I have always loved working with animals and when it was time for a change, the field of mobile pet grooming offered a perfect fit for me. In addition to being personally rewarding, it provides great opportunities to make new furry friends – and to make them beautiful.
