Melissa was born with a strong love for animals. Growing up, Melissa says her home was known as the "neighborhood zoo." From iguanas, birds, squirrels, rabbits, chickens, dogs, and cats, Melissa's childhood home was always filled with new friends. As a teenager, she prepped and bathed dogs for a corporate grooming company for a few years. Melissa recently turned her dream of working with animals from a dream to a reality by attending the Tampa Bay Area Grooming Academy. Melissa is our newest grooming team member, but that certainly won't stop her from making your pup as cute as it possibly can be!
