Since high school I have always connected with animals and wanted to be in the industry. My first opportunity came, I was officially bathing dogs. As time went on I chose to pursue the grooming trade. Eighteen years later my family and career grew. My son Joshua now 17 and daughter Tabatha 15 are great and get along well with my fiancé Shannon and his children. Our happy family includes 3 dogs and a pig. My dog Mavrick was a stray I found and rescued with broken leg and tail. Toby came into our lives when his pet parent passed. Winne came into my life when Shannon and I got together. Lastly our Buttercup our potbelly pig is just cute with her little fat belly. With all that said I came on board with PetSuites a few months after Bradenton opened. I really like it here the team is helpful and great.
