I have been grooming since 1983. I owned my own business until approximately 2011. After a lot of consideration I sold my business and started working as a groomer for Suite Dreams.

I groom all breeds of dogs including full scissor work and some show clips. I also groom well-mannered cats. The safety and well being of your valued pet is top priority, and I always do my best to give your pet the haircut you will be proud to show off.
