Jessica, Michael, and Kelsey 2009

I have loved animals my entire life.  This shows not only in my grooming work, but in my support and volunteering for local rescues including Little Paws Big Hearts Pekingese Rescue, Vermont Rabbit and Dog Resources, Poodle Rescue of VT, and many local charities as well.  My husband Mike and I are also an Approved Foster Family for Pekingese Rescue and Poodle Rescue of Vermont.

Mike and I and our daughter Kelsey live in Milton, VT with our Chihuahua, Olive; Schnoodle, Auto; and three Pekingese, Fluffy, Mojo, and Hank. We miss all the pets that have moved on from our daily lives.

I graduated with honors from Vermont Technical College in 1994 with an Associates degree in Veterinary Technology and passed National Exam for Veterinary Technicians.  I worked in Veterinary hospitals for 10 years before pursuing full time pet grooming after attending the Arizona Pet Grooming School in 2001.

I love all breeds but truly enjoy terrier breeds and hand stripping wire coated dogs. Many say I'm the Terrier Specialist here!  I also enjoy grooming special-needs pets or pets that may be "hard to handle."

I have a great affection for cats and cat grooming.
