Cassie Roland finds peace in pet grooming. She discovered her passion as a veterinary technician, and began grooming at Petsense (Tractor Supply) in Thomasville, GA. She just graduated Paragon’s Pet Groomer – Level 2 course, and we’re so proud!
From Mentor Jen McCarthy: “Cassie has been an outstanding student for her whole program. Not only getting great grades on her coursework, she also displayed such an amazing talent for grooming! Awesome prep work, beautiful clipper and scissor work. Cassie is on her way to being a shining star of a groomer! I am so proud of Cassie!”
Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?
I chose the grooming career because I knew I wanted to have a career that included animals. I worked in the Veterinary Technician field but it just wasn’t for me. I discovered that I really enjoyed grooming by helping the Groomer at the vet clinic weather it was washing a dog or drying a dog for her. I just really enjoyed it. I am at peace when I am grooming.
What did you enjoy most during your coursework?
I enjoyed being able to learn new skills and information.
Are you currently employed, or still looking?
