About Me

Life is about change.  And sometimes life hands us just the opportunity we need to turn certain chain of events around in our favor.  In my case it was a career change from a corporate professional, where in hindsight, the daily tasks at hand were fast becoming, boring, unrewarding and unchallenging.  So faced with an opportunity, I chose to get back to what I know and love and that is working with animals.  In June of 2007, I enrolled at Canine Clippers School of Pet Grooming, in Dumfries, Virginia and graduated in September of 2007.  In October 2007 I created Love the Dog! mobile dog and cat grooming salon, and the rest is history!  It is funny though, as much as I wanted to abandon the paralegal field, I have come to find out how those paralegal skills are still with me today and I haven’t changed that much.  I still am a stickler for attention to detail, but just now applying it to our 4 legged friends!  Now that is what I call a Beautiful Change!
