Olivia, Groomer

started grooming as a profession in 2007. She grew up with rescue dogs and had to groom them herself, so grooming was a natural choice. She joined Kingsbury in 2017. Her favorite dog to groom is a doodle, but loves grooming complicated dogs that require scissoring. She lives in Illinois with her husband and their six dogs Bernice, Brutus, Henry, Krum, Coal, and Penelope. She loves the outdoors and crafting. 

Ryan, Groomer

She first attended Hancock High School where she became the first girl to win a state wrestling champion in her weight class. She has officially been grooming for about two years but has grown up in a grooming salon. Her favorite dog to groom is poodles because of the different style cuts and their general intelligence. She and her three dogs, Hammy, Loki and Odin, call Saint Louis home. In her off time, she enjoys painting and spending time outside.
