I started grooming in 1989 in Madeira Beach, Florida, where I apprenticed with certified Master Groomer Cheryl Brown. One of the first breeds she taught me was the Springer Spaniel. They are not as popular as they used to be and I realized I have a affinity for the curly coats!

I took a little break from grooming when I first moved back to Vermont. During that time I became an expert on fish, aquariums and all things aquatic! I also rescued a lot of horses, competed in horse shows and taught riding lessons. It’s was fun and interesting but grooming called me back.

I joined the team at Doggie Styles in 2005. I am currently obsessed with Poodles, Shih Tzus, Cotons and Doodles. While Floof and Poof get me out of bed in the morning, I also love the occasional Collie or Golden!

I share my (haunted) home with my senior Standard Poodle, Viggo (he might live forever), and my spoiled princess Shih Tzu, Wicket, who likes to eat horse hoofs, and a gaggle of cats! We all rescued each other and live together on my small farm in Isle la Motte. Did I mention the 5 horses? Yes, 2 ponies, one Thoroughbred and 2 bossy-pants.

In my spare time, I enjoy riding and showing my horses, being sarcastic, playing golf, gardening and playing with my chickens (forgot to mention the chickens).
