As you get older you start to focus on what is really important. you stop sweating the small stuff, and enjoy life even more. I have always been this way, but now even more than ever I look back and Thank the good Lord for leading me into a grooming salon when I was 19 years old, in Texas and little did I know by getting that job as a bather and working my way up, that it would turn into my true love career. I regret absolutely nothing in my career so far. I have struggled, grown, made mistakes, studied, practiced, learned and and then learned more. Traveled to shows, seminars, and talked for hours on end with other people in our industry. I worked late nights, extra time on certain dogs to perfect scissoring, or techniques. I have built amazing relationships with clients, and I have started a group for continuing education for groomers in Montana. I have connected with Groomers from all over the state, and many other states as well.
I am to the point in my career that I can help other groomers better themselves, give advice, and try to pass some knowledge along. I still learn everyday but if I can help to pass along things I have learned, well - nothing else makes me happier. I have always hated that people in the same industry don't want to talk and help each other out. There are more than enough dogs to go around, and we should all have a good working relationship. Vets, Dog trainers, Dog walkers, Dog sitters, and Groomers. If I can help to build that bridge, then I will.
Thank you all for supporting me the last 10 years! Here's to 10 more!
