For as long as I can remember, I had a love for animals, especially dogs. I knew I wanted a career with dogs so in 1995 I received my grooming certificate from The New York School of Dog Grooming.
I began grooming at Hastings Farm in Lebanon Pa with a Poodle Breeder. After a few years, I decided to leave because I had a great opportunity to take over and run CM Kennel in Frazer. PA. The owners had left and moved to Ocean City, MD so they rented the business to me. I successfully ran the kennel and grooming for two years giving me the experience of running my own business. When the owners decided to sell it, I tried to purchase it, but ended up not having enough funds.
In 1998, I started my own business again in Frazer called Personal Touch Pet Care, Inc., located on Route 30. I was there for 4 years, but had to move out because the building was renovated. I then moved to 363 East Lincoln Highway in Exton and had a grooming shop there for five years. We did grooming and also sold retail. I had a clientele of about 3,000. I moved out in 2006 and started a mobile grooming service going door to door in a fully equipped grooming van. In 2011, I decided to open up another shop in Exton, PA to accommodate my clients hit hard by the economy and could no longer afford our mobile grooming service.
Now we have two successful grooming salons and a mobile service that I am so happy to be a part of. It’s rewarding to take care of pets and I find it so satisfying to see our pet parents so pleased with our grooming and services.
