About me

Having worked in office administration for 22 years as a secretary, personal assistant and receptionist, I was made redundant for the third time and decided to pursue my interest in dog grooming. However with dog grooming being unregulated, I felt it was important to have an industry recognised qualification.


I trained at Brooksby Melton College in 2013/2014 where I passed my City & Guilds Level 3 Certificate in Introductory Dog Grooming. Then during 2017/2018 I went onto complete the full qualification by passing my City & Guilds Level 3 Diploma for Professional Dog Stylists with Summit Groomer Training Group at The Muddy Paw in Northampton.


I try to continually expand my knowledge and skills by attending courses, demonstrations, seminars and workshops.


I have my own salon based at home which is purpose built, modern and fully equipped including a hydrobath. The hydrobath massages and stimulates the skin providing a therapeutic water massage, which helps with blood circulation and relieves tired muscles. I offer a one to one grooming experience for your dog with no distractions, with only one dog in at a time or only dogs from the same household. Which in the current situation helps with being COVID-secure, as I don’t have dogs from different households in the salon at the same time. I prefer to use natural shampoos on my own dogs to promote a healthy, hydrated skin and coat and I use the same products in my salon, For All DogKind.


I have a particular concern for animal welfare which is why I am involved with the local dog rescue and give my time voluntarily by providing grooming to those dogs that come into the rescue that require it.


I was brought up with English Cocker Spaniels and currently have two working Cocker Spaniels, Roxy and Isabella. Aside from grooming my other passion is dog agility which I have been doing since 2010 and I enjoy training and competing on a regular basis with my own dogs and my Mum’s Cocker Spaniels, Poppy and Ruby.


Dog agility has also lead to me having an interest in the fitness and conditioning of my own dogs. Which has in turn helped me understand how to deal with dogs that have orthopaedic issues and the different level of knowledge required to handle dogs without exacerbating a condition.


I am extremely proud to be a member of The Groomers Spotlight and for what it stands for and of my qualifications.
