I have spent my whole life living with animals. I grew up on a farm in Nebraska and for as long as I can remember we had an indoor dog or dogs.
When I was 21, I decided that working with animals was what I was destined to do. I went to college to become a veterinary technician. Shortly after this I met my wonderful husband and moved to Oregon.
I got a job at Petco in the grooming department, not knowing that this would forever change my future. I learned the ropes first bathing and brushing, then moved on to being the dog trainer, and finally went through their grooming school, at which I was top of the class. I have been grooming since April 2006, I have found my passion. You see I have always enjoyed the world of art and now I get to combine my artistic ablities with my love of dogs.
Now my journey is taking another turn. After 12 years in the industry I am opening my second shop in Hastings Nebraska . I have the passion, tools, and skills I need to be the best pet stylist in Hastings and the most important skill of all, I care about the pets. I have three dogs of my own they are my kids, my life. I know most of my clients feel the same about their pets.
I continue to grow my knowledge by going to grooming trade shows, reading our trade magazine, and I am about to start working on my master grooming certification. I believe you should never stop learning, the world around us is always changing and I enjoy learning about the new ideas and trends in my field. I hope you come see me and give me the opportunity to show you how great your dog can look.
little Heidi was just as pretty as she thought she was. It really perks her up to get her groomed. She comes home wanting to be loved & pampered. Great job Ashley, my little Heidi girl came out looking beautiful. Nancy
