A Little About Me

I started Doggie Works Mobile Grooming in March of 2008 and have enjoyed my work every day since.

In 1995, I began my grooming career as an apprentice at an upscale grooming salon in Northern Virginia. I have gained a lot of knowledge in the areas of skin and coat care, AKC breed standard grooming, animal behavior, and humane handling from excellent instructors and leaders of the grooming industry.

I regularly attend continuing education seminars across the country to keep up with current styling trends, equipment, products, and animal health and care. I am certified in animal first aid and CPR, I am an AKC Safety Certified Groomer, and my mobile salon is AKC Safety Certified. Click here to view my certifications.

I appreciate the concerns many pet owners have for the safety, comfort, and humane treatment of their pets. I have a few dogs of my own, an adorable Chihuahua mix, a spunky Cocker Spaniel, a very affectionate disabled hound mix, and a quiet (lazy) senior hound.
