Why did you choose dog grooming as a career?
I chose dog grooming as a career because I’ve always had a strong connection with animals and I know that it will be a fulfilling career for me. Paraphrasing Marc Anthony, when you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. Dog grooming is my calling and so far every day at work has been joyful.

What are your future goals?
My future goals are to continue my education and attend in-person seminars to sharpen and improve my skills.
Any advice for aspiring groomers?
My advice for aspiring dog groomers is to be kind and patient. Animals can sense your emotions and customers can read if you are in a good mood or not.
