Charity has been grooming professionally for over 6 years. She began her career in Las Vegas, NV with a Corporate salon and relocated to New Mexico in 2009.
As a professional Pet Stylist, Charity is dedicated to taking her services way beyond the typical “Shave-n-Bathe”. Her education is on-going and includes attending out-of-state Groom Industry Seminars and Tradeshows. She is a contributing member of several Professional Groomer’s networks and a Member in Good Standing with the International Society of Canine Cosmetologists.
Her specialties include handscissored Styles for Poodles, Bichons, and other breeds requiring a polished finish. She also offers minimal Handstripping and clippered Terrier and Spaniel patterns according to AKC Breed Standards. For Busy Pets with Active Lifestyles, she offers customized “Easy Maintenance” Personality Trims according to client preference.
In September Charity will travel to Las Vegas, NV to enter her FIRST GroomTeam USA-sanctioned grooming competition! She will be competing with her own Standard Poodle, Bonzai.
Through a matter of chance, i was selected for spotlight as First Time Competitor! This just means I was interviewed and had my first competition filmed and streamed live, unfortunately i didn’t place. The woman who “found” me on PGF, Jeanette, was incredible and extremely knowledgeable. So I was interviewed before and after and from what I hear, given plenty of camera time during competition.
It was the biggest adrenaline rush of my life! I am so happy for the opportunity and I can’t WAIT to get out there and do it again!
