Meet the team
My passion for dog grooming was sparked when I just 14 years old and volunteering at a family friend's shop. By the time I was 17, I knew that this was what I was supposed to do. I have been a professional groomer for
13 years. After working in other people's shops for most of my career, I opened Shampooches in 2015 with the support of my family and so many members of the amazing Alton community. I, along with my husband, two daughters, our beagle Jessie Ann and rescue pit bull Flo Jo, are happy to call Alton home.
I love being able to help dogs feel better after a day of pampering. But my absolute favorite thing about my job is the bond that I build with each and every one of my clients. I love them as if they were my own! Going to work and being greeted by wet noses and wagging tails has helped me cope with some really tough losses. I always say it's impossible to have a bad day when your job is as cute as mine.
I'm a wife and mother from the Alton area. I have a bearded dragon and a dog who I consider a best friend. After starting out as a bather, I was trained and certified as a dog groomer in 2013. I've worked with countless dogs of all breeds and sizes.
I enjoy getting to know my K-9 clients and their owners, and growing a friendship. Every day I feel grateful to be able to work with dogs. Although we don't speak the same language, it's incredible that we can still understand each other.
