How long have you worked at Pampered Pets?
I joined the Pampered Pets team around 3 years ago. I started as a bather and then trained as a groomer which I really enjoy. I have always worked with animals and was happy to find a position at Pampered Pets that allows me to do something I care about. I am now the Grooming Manager.
What are some past positions you’ve had that involved caring for fur kids
In the past, I worked for a pet store caring for the puppies. I also worked at other grooming salons doing both bathing and some grooming. Additionally, I spent 7 years doing a little bit of everything at a vet office: walking dogs, cleaning up after them, washing/grooming, medicating animals, helping with x-rays and prepping for surgery.
You have quite the menagerie of critters at your house. Tell us about your four-legged kids!
Well we have three dogs, two shelties and a Brittney mix. Fire is a Sheltie who will be 11 this year and Rain, who is 13, and then there is Leo the Brittney mix who is just a year old. We also have four rats, Bastion, Cloud, Rico and Curly. And, we have two cats, Riku and Gizmo. There are also lots of chickens, ducks and one 34-year-old horse!
What are you most thankful for this holiday season?
I am most thankful that I have a loving family, a roof over my head and that I am surrounded by my furry critters, a husband and family from a far.
What’s your favorite thing to do with family this time of year?
Enjoying dinner with family.
