I have always loved animals and surrounded myself with every creature under the sun. I moved to Ottawa in 2006 working my way through various Breeding and sport horse barns in the area, training and showing my horse at the bronze level until leaving for College in 2009.
I returned to Ottawa in 2012 and shortly after started my grooming career. With 3 years of veterinary clinic experience and a lifetime of hands on animal jobs under my belt, dog grooming seemed to fit like a glove.
I trained briefly under a CMG in Dunrobin, Ontario, then continued grooming for her kennel as I learned the ins and outs of the industry.
In 2016, I started the process of certifying with Canadian Professional Pet Stylists, being tested on both my hands on and text book knowledge of CKC breeds, basic first aid, and complex skin conditions.
October 2017, I achieved my Certified Master Groomer certification, and continue to learn through private lessons and seminars.
June 2018 I entered my very first grooming competition in Smiths Falls, Ontario, grooming beside and learning from the very best Groomers in North America.
I continue to compete at the Novice level, and hope to advance to Intermediate during the 2019 season.
I’m so excited to open my doors and provide the pets, and their people of Ottawa, with the very best grooming in Ottawa!
