We are now celebrating 20 years in the same location. Wow!
My background is actually in business management and public relations. I managed the local grooming school prior to opening my first salon. Having had dogs and cats all my life (and actually attempting -lol- to groom my own poodle as a child) it seemed a natural progression to become a professional pet groomer.
I started my first salon on the east side of Tucson. After approximately 8 years I sold that shop and moved to the west side in May 1993. It has been a whirlwind since then.
Being a single woman in the business world has not been a detriment. Business has continued to grow each year. We have made some great friends over the past 20 years.
