What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I use to be a licensed cosmetologist and I am certified by The Cleveland Grooming Academy for grooming. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

How did you get started in this business?

I have always had a huge passion for animals since I was a child. With my knowledge in cosmetology, I combined two of my passions into a full time career and couldn’t be happier. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I had a customer come to me and explained her newly adopted dogs story to me. He was in a home where he was neglected and unloved. After they surrendered him to this amazing lady, she came to me and asked for my help and any pointers I could give her. He was a very scared little guy, but I gave him a snazzy haircut and was able to tell her any issues I noticed afterwards. 

A few days later, the lady came to me and hugged me with a huge thank you. She then told me that she named him after me, Tory!

I enjoy helping animals in need. It is my passion and I’ll always be a voice for animals and help owners too! If anyone ever has a question about your pet, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

The best advice I can give a customer who is looking to hire a professional is to always checkout the businesses domain (Facebook, website, google, etc.) And read the reviews. Then from there see if they have a portfolio or someway of them showing their quality of work. After, of course, check out the businesses pricing to see if it is in the range you are looking to spend. Remember, cheap isn’t always quality and quality isn’t always cheap! Lastly, contact the professional and chat further. 

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

• What they are looking for

• An estimate on when they would be looking for the service

• What they are looking to spend

• Any questions that gather more detailed info about the business
