I am a third-generation, Certified Master Pet Groomer with 25 years of experience in grooming all dog and cat breeds. My entire life has been dedicated to my children and our family pets, always with a passion to make their lives a better place. I was raised to give the utmost respect and care to all of our pets. That in return, has brought me to where I am today! I have a great love and passion for our family pets and a respect for their owners.
I have turned my passion into a business, earning my Certified Master Pet Grooming Certificates in Minnesota, as well as, traveling all over the country showing terriers and raising Grand Champion Miniature Schnauzers. I now own two grooming shops; Glen Lake Groomers in Minnetonka, Minnesota and North Pine Pet Grooming in Becker, Minnesota.
I have been grooming for about four years now but have been working with dogs since I was very young. I am a second generation pet groomer and have grown up in this exact company. I have been bathing, drying and brushing dogs since I was about eight years old. I currently own three dogs; two boxers named Macy and Rose, and a cute mix named Nordy. I also have a bearded dragon named Smaug. I love working with animals and couldn't imagine my life without them. I love meeting new dogs and getting to see their personalities. I like building the trust it takes for an owner and a dog to trust a groomer to take care of their family member. I know how hard it is to trust someone to take care of your pet and I always treat your pet like I would my own.
I am the fourth generation groomer in my family. I have been grooming for two years now and am currently working on receiving my grooming certifications. Although I only have two years of grooming experience I have been raised around grooming and dog showing. I apprenticed under my mother, Corey Martell, beginning at a young age.
In my earlier years I would spend my summers traveling to different states to participate in Junior Dog Showmanship. When I wasn't showing I was helping prepare my grandmother's champion miniature schnauzers for the ring. I have always had an appreciation and passion for animals and I knew from a young age that when I grew up I wanted to continue the family business. I have always been told to find something you love and turn it into a career - that is exactly what I have done. I look forward to meeting and pampering your beloved furry family members!
I grew up on a house farm and I have been around animals all my life. I attended Cutting Edge Pet Grooming School where I received my pet grooming certifications and have been working in this field for over 22 years. I have now been working at Glen Lake Groomers for the past 22 years. I am a very gentle and patient groomer.
