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.  From 2017 through 2020 I groomed at Casey's Place honing my skills and enjoying every moment of being a member of a very special grooming team.  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

Wet Nose Style began as a home studio and hobby to offer top quality grooming to older and infirmed dogs unable to go to a busy shop.  Now, in an attempt to meet the demand for grooming in Sonoma, Wet Nose Style is partnering with the Sonoma Pet Center to offer full service grooming.  Grooming for special needs and homeless dogs remains my passion and will continue to be addressed on a case-by-case basis.


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.
