As a child I grew up in the rural Ottawa Valley surrounded by animals big and small. Most of my fondest memories growing up were spent with my pets. From a very young age I always had a deep connection with animals and knew one day I would follow my dreams of helping them and their people.
As an adult I have continued to follow my passion for animals dedicating time to foster for local dog rescues, volunteer grooming for shelters and rescues, as well as social networking to save lives of pets on death row.
After many years of a less satisfying role in customer service bars and restaurants I pursued employment in a veterinary clinic setting. Although rewarding, I began to pursue other animal care interests. This led me to the NCGIA in Greenville, South Carolina where I graduated as a Certified Feline Master Groomer. It was upon my return that I opened the first and only feline exclusive mobile grooming spa to come to Ottawa!
In my second year I added another mobile spa, one to be canine exclusive to meet the needs of my ever growing clientele with multi-pet households.
I could have never imagined I would have the opportunity to expand my horizons even further and open a brick and mortar shop in one of the most historic and community focused parts of the city.
I am proud to bring you an amazing team of animal enthusiast professionals that will bring to you the best in care for your furry family members.
