I am a groomer with over 30 years of experience. I began my career as an apprentice in a salon in Pennsylvania. Over the years I have groomed in salons, kennels, and vet hospitals. At the last one, I wrote their manual for proper grooming procedures.
I am a Nationally Certified Master Groomer through the National Dog Groomers Association of America. This certification was completed in 1995. It involved rigorous written tests as well as hands-on practical tests of my grooming abilities on four different breeds of dogs.
I am a Certified Feline Master Groomer through the National Cat Groomers Institute of America. This certification was completed in 2010. The process to achieve the certification involved spending two weeks at a school in South Carolina. It covered two full weeks of lectures, covering all breeds of cats, their specific traits, and their various health specifics. During that time at school, I also was able to take classes in pet CPR, which I am certified in, as well. I groomed many different cats while in school.
In addition to my grooming I have also bred, raised, trained and shown dogs of different breeds. I have exhibited dogs in confirmation and obedience competition. I also teach dog obedience classes.
Currently, I own one Standard Poodle, Nicky. He has 3 levels of Obedience Titles and his CGC certificate. Also living in our home is Harley, a Domestic Long-haired cat.
