Professional Qualifications

As a professional and knowledgeable pet groomer, I take pride in drawing upon my wealth of experience to provide the personalized, detailed care your pet deserves. My resume includes these qualifications:

• Master Groomer Trained
• Member National Dog Groomers Association of America
Member National Cat Groomers Institute of America

Member California Professional Pet Groomers Association
Internship, Coat Care Science

I am fortunate to have trained with one of the very few Certified Master Groomers practicing in California at a private institute. While most groomers have received little if any professional training beyond a few weeks in a big box pet store, my training qualifies me to attend to your pet’s unique coat and skin care needs. Additionally, I have made the grooming and skin care of cats a focus of my work. I trained in Salt Lake City and Davis with Danelle German, President of the National Cat Groomers Institute of America.  I have developed a cat-friendly, safe and predictable environment and approach to the grooming of our feline friends.

I take pride in drawing upon my wealth of professional experience to provide the personalized care your four legged family members deserve. My goal is to deliver professional and loving services tailored to your special companion’s unique psychological, emotional and physical needs. Ultimately, I measure my success by your pet’s happiness and health as much as by their beauty.
