I grew up in a pet orientated family, we always got our pets from my Grandma Turner who was a chairperson as well as the President of the Northwest Rhode Island Humane Society. She converted her house into the shelter to be able to provide for the homeless pets! Helping her in my 3rd grade year, walking dogs and riding along to vet visits is definitely what started my love for animal care. As a young adult I started bathing and brushing in a small shop in Cheyenne, WY. After graduating from high school I moved to Eugene and started training under a groomer with 25+ years of experience. She pushed me to go visit the world of dog showing and there I fell in love with Basenjis!
After a few years of showing then breeding, 16 years of grooming with the help of my Grandma Sherman I decided to bring the grooming salon to my home! Since then my main focus is continuing education in grooming. I have taught seminars at trade shows, I am Safety Certified through the AKC, I have Pet First Aide and CPR certification and am currently working on my pet Esthetician Certification.
I look forward to meeting you and your pets!
