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 ® PetSaverâ„¢ 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: 

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 ShelterOregon Dog Rescue

I have also enjoyed being a foster parent to Rat Terriers in Oregon through a national rescue organization called Ratbone Rescues.
