Olivia grew up with dogs and cats of her own since she was a child. Her love for animals got her involved in rescuing and fostering dogs from an early age. Her interest in grooming started after she adopted her two family dogs who would not let anyone else groom them except for her. Her passion for grooming was sparked when she helped her professional groomer friend give a haircut to their Schnauzer dog. The outcome of the look totally amazed her and she enjoyed the time working with her professional grooming friend. She decided to change her career after this experience and joined PDL Grooming School to obtain the professional skills she needed to be able to work with dogs. After she got her Certificate and started her professional career as a groomer, she has never been this satisfied and happy working with lovely dogs each day and transforming them to look great and shiny when they walk out.
