Melissa has had a life-long love for animals. As a child, Melissa knew she would be working in the Animal Care field. In 2009, Melissa began her journey as a pet groomer. Working under a Master groomer as an assistant for 4 years, Melissa learned a wide variety of techniques and grooming styles.
In 2013, she attended a grooming academy and completed her training. Prior to opening Good Dog! Grooming, Melissa worked as the Salon Manager at a Veterinary Hospital, where she furthered her education on Dermatological and General Medical aspects of Dog Grooming and Pet Care.
Over the years, Melissa has developed into an outstanding professional. She says that she “loves grooming because every day is different and every dog has such a unique personality.” There is so much flexibility with grooming different coats and you develop such a unique and wonderful bond with each pet and their owners.” She says.
