I obtained my veterinary medical degree from Michigan State University in 1992, and worked as a veterinarian in Wisconsin, first in a primarily pet animal clinic and then as a nutrition consultant for a baby-animal nutrition company. After several years I made a career change and became a teacher of Advanced Placement Biology, Allied Medical Health and Anatomy and Physiology. I am now retired from both being a licensed veterinarian and a teacher and wish to refocus solely on pet grooming and care.
From a very young age I have connected with dogs and cats and they have connected with me. Even people’s pets that tend to be uncomfortable or nervous around strangers or specific people are most often comfortable around me. I was awarded an award in veterinary science from both the State of Michigan 4-H program and the National 4-H program. I began working as a veterinary assistant at the age of 10, working with multiple veterinarians, including my brother and brother-in-law who are both veterinarians. My love and care for dogs and cats has been strong since I was a child, and with my knowledge, training, and experience I am in a perfect position to refocus on pet grooming and care.
In addition to my degree in veterinary medicine, I am a Certified Pet Hygienist and a Certified Pet Groomer. I stand behind my service and understand that each pet has different needs. I am ready to listen and provide caring high- quality grooming and my insights as a veterinarian who cares about your pet(s).
I started this company with several goals in mind:
• to provide high quality grooming and care for beloved dogs and cats that improves a pet’s physical and mental health.
• to provide a convenient, caring service that reduces the time and stress (to owner and pet) of bringing pet(s) to a “brick and mortar” grooming shop.
• to be able to focus solely on beloved pets, one at a time.
• to provide more than what a typical pet groomer can provide, without the costs of a visit to a licensed veterinarian. In addition to high quality grooming, I offer basic pet care services, veterinary and nutrition advice, first aid, basic veterinary treatments and veterinary insight to help pet owners determine if they need to get additional veterinary services from a licensed veterinarian. *
I look forward to being your pet’s caring groomer who will look out for your pet(s) health and well-being!
