Hi everyone. Thank you for visiting my blog page. I have been a four time member of Groom Team USA and ranked one of the top groomers in the country. I am a multiple Best In Show and Best All Around competitor. An International medalist winning a gold and bronze medal in Barcelona, Spain in 2004 and a gold medal in Milan, Italy in 2007 competing among 13 countries of world renown groomers. In 2005 and 2006 I was awarded Best American Groomer. I captured the title of World Grand Champion in the Oster Invitational Tournament of Champions. This tournament was by invitation only. Forty-two competitors from around the world were invited, and I was thrilled to take the Championship title. I am currently a speaker and contest judge traveling nationally and internationally educating groomers here and abroad. I love to educate groomers around the world. I hold seminars, workshops and training sessions for groomers who want to perfect their skills. I am a two time Master Pet Stylist.
