This is Michelle. She grew up in Oviedo. Her family had a large assortment of animals when she was a child: from the typical domestic pets such as dog(s), cat(s) and snakes(s) to farm animals such as duck(s) and chickens(s) as well as an Iguana and a turkey named Tom, who ironically turned out to be a female. When Michelle was young she believed that she was going to be either a veterinarian or a writer, she still enjoys writing in her free time. Before becoming a groomer Michelle worked for a camera shop. Michelle attended a grooming school in 2008. She decided to become a groomer when she sat in on a grooming class that was offered at her college. Since then Michelle completed her grooming studies and has been grooming for three and a half years. Her favorite part of the day is when a groom is complete and the pet looks happy to have been spruced up along with owner's satisfaction. As a result of Michelle's grooming abilities she is sometimes called Edward Scissorhands because scissoring seems to come very natural to her. One of the funniest things that Michelle has experienced on a groom is that one of her regular clients (a dog) runs and hides from her every time she comes, when Michelle finally catches her and picks her up the dog will always poo and it will always land in Michelle's front pocket, what are the odds.
This is Mary. Mary grew up in West Virginia. While searching for a nanny position Mary came across an available groomer position.

This is Kitty. Kitty knew from a very young age that she wanted to pursue a career with animals. If she sees an animal on the side of the highway during evening traffic she would stop to help it. Kitty has been a groomer for the past three years; she attended a local grooming school in 2010. Kitty decided to be a groomer when she was studying to be a veterinarian assistant and was asked if she was comfortable putting a dog down, she was not. Kitty's favorite part of the day when she is grooming is the haircutting process. She loves the challenge of breed clips and figuring out new and creative ways to groom an animal. One of the funniest things that Kitty has experienced on a groom is when she grooms one of her regulars, a golden retriever, he walks halfway to the van and then drops to the ground and acts like he is dead. Kitty also has a dog that enjoys the groom so much that she ends up falling asleep during the groom. A tip Kitty would give to pet owners would be to do research on what type of pet they want to get, make sure pet owners fully understand the costs of the pet.
