Stacey has been part of our grooming family since 2017. She was a hairdresser for 25 years until she decided to pursue her true calling and that was dog grooming. With her sweet demeanor and loving words, her favorite thing to do is sing to the dogs as she grooms. During her downtime you will find her talking to and hanging out with the other dogs in the studio. Stacey grooms all breeds but Yorkies hold a special place in her heart. Nervous, anxious and shy dogs seem to take a liking to her as she works with them to gain their trust and learn that grooming can be fun and relaxing. On her days off you can find her at one of her favorite places, the dog park, doing what she loves most, which is playing with other people's dogs! There is not a dog that can walk by her without her saying hello and showing them some love!
As long as Ashley can remember she's loved animals. Throughout high school and college she volunteered at local SPCAs to help take care of homeless dogs, and when she graduated she knew she wanted to keep working with animals. Lucky for her, a local shop was hiring groomers, and she jumped at the chance to make dogs look and feel their best. She loves working with all dogs, especially dogs that are nervous, shy or fearful, and that might need a little extra love and attention while they're getting pampered. Ashley also loves working on her Doodles from large to small! She's a proud fur-mom to her two cats Stella and Oliver.
