Minnesota Rising Star Aims High
Anna “Änu” Peterson has excelled at her grooming work! Fresh out of Paragon’s Level 1 Groom Tech program, Änu continues to sharpen her skills at Pet Supplies Plus in Vadnais Heights, MN. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
From Mentor Mikaela Campbell: “She did wonderfully throughout the course and really shows that she is passionate about learning and her grooming career. I really enjoyed seeing her skills progress with each photo submission.”
Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?
I’ve always loved dog/all animals, and I’ve been cutting and dyeing my/my friends’ hair for the last 12 years. Dog grooming is like a combination of both of those loves!
What did you enjoy most during your coursework?
I really enjoy doing blowouts on heavy coated dogs! (Mostly huskies, we can sing together!) I also really enjoyed doing natural feet, and I’m looking forward to learning and doing more styles of foot trims!
Are you currently employed, or still looking?
I am currently employed at Pet Supplies Plus. It’s a great fit. 🙂
What are your future goals?
Once I finish my schooling, I’m planning on continuing to work for Pet Supplies Plus for at least a few years, and then potentially opening a mobile grooming business of my own.
