KD Grooming Studio. Balsam Farm


About me

I am the Owner/Director of KD Grooming Studio a Dog & Cat grooming commercial studio as well as a training centre. I am very passionate about my job, groom to a high standard, treat each and every one of our clients & there beloved dogs as individuals. I also deliver level 2 & level 3 City and Guilds approved dog grooming courses as well as being the only training centre in the South West offering the Certificate of Competence in Cat Grooming. In addition to the grooming courses we also deliver the C&G Level 2 Dog walking qualification.

I have been grooming since 2002, starting my career as a work experience student in a well-respected grooming and training school, in conjunction with an animal care course. I was soon offered a job as a bather, I completed my Level 3 in Dog Grooming and Teacher Training and from there I gained my LCGI (Licentiate of the City & Guilds Institute) and my Higher Diploma in Dog Grooming. After nine years in my well-loved job I joined a partnership with an established grooming studio before branching off on my own and opening KD Grooming Studio.

I love my work and I am incredibly passionate about teaching, education and continuing to raise the standards in the industry. Thus taking on the role of Director of the British dog groomers association from 2015-2017. My role as a higher diploma examiner is an important role for me. As well as offering support to the more experienced groomers I’m really keen to encourage the younger generations to get involved with grooming. This coupled with the fact so many people have asked me to run an event in the South West for years, has led me to hosting Supergroom SW in July.

My love for the job also spills over into my home life where we own a Bedlington Terrier, a Miniature Poodle, a Pekingese and an Akita. We also have horses, tortoises, a bearded dragon, hedgehog and rabbits! My parents run an animal rescue centre with many horses, ponies & shetlands to look after so this certainly keeps me busy! I enjoy entering grooming competitions in England and in Europe. I am always attending seminars and workshops to keep up with growing and ever-changing trends in the grooming industry. In 2017 I had a proud mother moment when my 6-year-old daughter Darcy won second place as the youngest competitor at Crufts so it seems like it definitely seems to run in the family. I am not one to rest, always coming up with new and exciting ideas to promote and improve the industry so be sure to keep an eye on our FB page to keep up to date with all of my plans ahead.
