She wanted to open a salon that would build a family instead of just a clientele base. Known as the “dog whisperer” she can find her own language with any personality to make sure that the grooming process always goes smoothly!
She has experience grooming all breeds and temperments and has worked on show dog grooms. In her free time, she likes to spend time outside with her dogs, visiting the Botanical Garden of St. Louis, swimming, or doing yoga.
