About Me....


Originally from Nova Scotia, Canada; I came to Palm Springs, California in 2001. While I was there I decided to go to a grooming academy and graduated that same year.

At first, I planned on becoming a photographer and graphic designer; which I attended college for. Life took me into a different direction, so I thought it was a good idea to combine my creative nature with my love of animals into a pet styling career.

I've spent most of my career working as a groomer in a veterinary hospital so I learned a lot about animal health related to grooming.​

Experiencing first hand how animals react to being at the grooming salon all day;  my dream was to open a mobile grooming pet salon to keep pets happy, beautiful, and stress free.  

I started Luxe Paws in 2013. I constantly strive to educate myself on the latest styles, techniques, tools, and products in this fast-paced and ever changing world of pet grooming. 

This is how my clients can have the best luxury service at the highest level of convenience.

I have always treated my client's pets as if they were my own. 

Their safety and comfort are my first priority. 


I look forward at the chance to give your pet the very best spa treatment.
