Hi. I’m Lauren.
I began grooming rescued dogs for Compassion Without Borders in 2017 where I have served on the board since 2013. In 2017, I received dual certification in pet hygiene and pet grooming from the Master Grooming School, and apprenticed with master groomer Lancy Woo at VIP Grooming in San Francisco, CA.
Wet Nose Style is my private studio providing 1:1 grooming in a kennel free environment in Sonoma CA. This studio is especially well suited to dogs not able to go to the local shops, such as older, nervous, and special needs pets (not aggressive).
In August 2020 I completed the master-level training at the Paragon School of Pet Grooming, the top-rated grooming academy in the US, earning the title of Pet Stylist. It seems that putting quality grooms on special needs dogs is my passion.
Prior to dog grooming, my career has been on the business side of clinical research, using my MBA in finance and management to help teams develop drugs to help patients in need of treatment.
