Meet Our Groomer

For as long as I can remember, I have always had a passion for animals. My first job with animals was at a boarding facility called Camp K9 and I really enjoyed my time there. I worked one on one with multiple dogs at a time and really got to learn their behaviors. When I saw the opening at Piper Glen Animal Hospital, I jumped on the opportunity. I began working in the Boarding department and loved every minute of it. I really enjoyed working with all the different types of cats and dogs. I eventually was promoted to a Boarding Shift Supervisor. This position taught me so much and was a lot of fun, but I wanted to expand my knowledge and cross-train in different departments. After discussing this with the Practice Manager I started working in Reception learning many new things such as booking appointments and reading doctor's notes and x-rays. Not long after that, Piper Glen Animal Hospital was in need of a Groomer, so the opportunity presented itself and I was ready for the next step. The support from my fiancĂ©, daughter, family and work family made me feel overjoyed and after much consideration, I started my research. During my search I found the South Charlotte Dog Grooming School and applied. I was accepted and eager to start my courses. I quickly found that this is my true passion. The best feeling is seeing the owner's face when picking up their animal with a brand new look. I look forward to meeting all my new clients and their furry ones and getting the opportunity to not only get to know the pet but to continue to see the owner's excited faces. :)  - Kathy
