Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?
I choose dog grooming as a career because I enjoy taking care of the needs of pets. Pets are protective and caring and I believe they deserve the same. I love making dogs feel well taken care of and making their owners happy.
What did you enjoy most during your coursework?
I enjoyed the stylized legs photo submission the most. I love that it was challenging me and I didn’t give up. My mentor Shelly Fledderjohann, kept me interested throughout the submission. She sent me videos and labeled my photos with corrections that’ll help me succeed in the program. I would say my mentor hyped me to keep going because she knew I could do it and I did.
