Utah Star Follows Passion for Poodles
Rising Star Stefanie Nolazco took her poodle to the groomer – and she came back with a whole new career! Following her love of dogs, Stefanie grooms at The Gray Dog in St. George, UT, and just completed Paragon’s Level 2 – Pet Groomer course. We’re thrilled to see her shine.
From Coach Jilly Mucciarone: “She just completed Level 2 and showed exceptional talent and growth throughout both levels! Her finish work is fabulous, as is her attention to detail and dedication to her education!”
