About me

After initially pursuing a career in the equine industry gaining a BTech Higher National Diploma in Horse Management from Sparsholt College, my passion took a detour towards dog grooming. Starting out as a bather/brusher in a friends’ salon I absolutely fell in love with the job and knew I would never want to do anything else, 9 years later I was employed by fellow Groomer Spotlight member and owner of Shampoodles Carol Thorpe.
Since joining Shampoodles in 2014 I have gained my City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Professional Dog Grooming in which I received all high merits and distinctions. Studying for my Diploma made me more determined to expand my knowledge by attending a canine first aid course and many seminars and demos and gave me the confidence to start competing. Earlier this year I placed 3rd in my class at Mastergroom 2018 shortly followed by a 2nd place at the British Dog Grooming Championships, i look forward to furthering my knowledge and gaining more invaluable experience at future competitions.
I take a lot of pride my in work and strive to provide a high quality of service to both animal and owner, I understand the importance of building good communication, trust and compassion in order to maintain good groomer-animal-owner relationship.
