Heather, started in the grooming industry when she was 17 years old. Since she was little, Heather knew she wanted to work with pets and have her own business. When she was 10 she started a pet sitting service in her neighborhood and that started it all. At 17 she quit school and became a pet bather and learned all she could to become a pet stylist. She became the top pet bather/prepper very quickly, and a few years later apprenticed as a groomer. Shortly thereafter she opened her own mobile salon in 2008 at the age of 26. For years now, Heather has taken much pride in that she is able to bring her professional skills to the homes of dog owners across the Low Country to provide a high level of care and attention to each pet she grooms.
