I have always had a love for animals. When I was young, I was that little girl who brought home the stray, even when my father said no more! I started my career once my two boys began all-day school and now, twenty years later, I am still happily employed with Stuebner Airline Pet Resort & Spa as Groomer/Manager of the facility. I am very passionate about my work and I make sure to take special care with each pet I groom.
We always had poodles, my mother showed poodles, Labrador retrievers as well as other breeds. I partially grew up at dog shows and was lucky enough to be influenced and mentored by some of the best groomers and handlers in the business.
I have been a hairstylist for people for 30 years and about 8 years ago decided to combine my passion for dogs with my love of hair styling and attended grooming school and then joined the team at Stuebner Airline Pet Resort & Spa. I work one day a week as a groomer and four days as a hairstylist. I am often asked which I like better. I answer, “Both have their benefits. People sit still but dogs don’t complain.” The dogs bring me such joy and I smile and laugh all day.
Bio Coming Soon..
I have always had a love for animals, growing up my brothers and I ran a pet boarding business out of our house so we got to experience being around all types of pets. I attended the Virginia School of Dog Grooming in 2006 and have been grooming since then. I enjoy grooming all types of breeds but especially like doing Shih Tzu, Golden Retrievers and Doodles.
When not working I spend time with my 3 rescue dogs and my wife and newborn son
