I have been working in the grooming industry since 1987. I began my career working with a variety of breeds of dog at Rocky Glen Kennels. It was here where I developed my passion for working with animals. I was mentored by many talented people and quickly developed my skillset.
My love for dogs and cats has always been strong. My passion, dedication and love for new industry knowledge prompted me to open 4 Paws Grooming Ltd in 1991.
I have owned various dogs and worked with a number of breeds throughout the years, and have developed a particular fondness for Golden Retrievers and Bernese Mountain dogs.
I continue to educate myself and further my knowledge, acquiring certificates, attending seminars and improving my skills and knowledge of the latest techniques and equipment.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my fur babies Annabelle and Wilber (both Golden Retrievers) and Dewey my ragdoll cat, and of course, my human family. I also love heading to BC to enjoy lake time which includes swimming and dock diving with the dogs. When I have extra time, I volunteer with the PALS program which enhances the lives of people through pet therapy.
