the pet industry, responsible for overseeing a grooming salon where she became very interested in learning dog grooming.

Keri decided that it was time to pursue a new career where she could share her passion and love of dogs, and really look forward to going to work every day! Keri left her retail job and attended the San Diego Grooming Academy, graduating as a Professional Dog Groomer and Stylist and she

has been grooming full- time ever since!
