After working for many years in the corporate world, my love for dogs eventually led
me to a new (and most enjoyable) career as a professional dog groomer. I graduated from dog
grooming school in 2007, and certified in Pet First Aid & CPR through the PetTech ®
PetSaver™ program. I am also an active member of the National Dog Grooming Association of America, and
attend national grooming education seminars as often as possible.
I have a Jack Russell Terrier named Lucy, and a Rat Terrier named Holly. My
dogs are my "kids" now that my human children are grown, and are very
much adored! Below is a picture of my sweet girls.
Lucy, my Jack Russell Terrier went blind in 2004 and I
run a support web site for owners of blind dogs at: Blinddogs.net
I've done volunteer grooming for the Washington County Bonnie Hays
Animal Shelter, as well as Oregon Dog Rescue. Both have a wonderful selection of
pets waiting for a new home, so if you're thinking of adding a new fur-family member be
sure and check their adoption listings at these links: Bonnie Hays Animal Shelter, Oregon Dog Rescue.
I have also enjoyed being a foster parent to Rat
Terriers in Oregon through a national rescue organization called Ratbone Rescues.
