Meet Our Pet Groomer

Hi, I’m Kiera!

My love for animals has been lifelong and stems from my childhood, growing up on the family farm in Snowflake, Arizona. By the age of 8, I was milking cows, feeding cattle, horses, chickens, rabbits, dogs, cats, pigeons, and let’s not forget the pigs. One of which was named Sweetie, whom I adopted as my best friend. From a very young age I knew that my passion in life was in helping and caring for animals. Luckily for me, many of the paths that I have had the opportunity to take in life, assist me in fulfilling that passion.

Licensed Cosmetologist

I have had the opportunity to work as a professionally licensed hairstylist in both Arizona and California over the past 10 years. This training has allowed for me to excel in master scissoring, which I am able to apply in the pet grooming world.

Bachelors Degree in Psychology

Due to my interest in the human psyche, I was able to obtain my BA in Cognitive Psychology from the University of CA Irvine. It was such a rewarding experience and I learned so much that I am able to apply in my interactions with people daily, but more importantly during my studies I was also able to study with an emphasis on animal behavior. Those classes have been invaluable to me, as they allow me to better interpret the emotions and physical needs of the animal I am grooming.

Grooming Certification

I had been grooming my families, friends, and of course my own fur babies for years, but decided that I would like to be certified and provide others with the knowledge and skills I have obtained. I was certified in grooming and pet styling, by Amber Lewin of Animal Planet’s Groomer Has It. Amber is such an amazing teacher and gave me the tools that I needed to take my craft to the next level.

When I am not grooming I enjoy spending my time with my husband Ben, our sweet daughters, and our fur babies, Beau (Chocolate Lab Mix), Colby (Lab/Mastiff Mix), Peppa (Pitbull). I also spend a lot of spare time volunteering at number of different animals rescues. We love to go on cruises whenever we have time off. So far we have been to Mexico, about a dozen Caribbean Islands, and Alaska. We are hoping to go to the Mediterranean next.

So now that you know a little bit about me, I look forward to meeting and getting to know you and your pets.
