I started grooming in 1973. Initially this involved approximately 3 years in training, learning the techniques for all breeds of dogs in order to become an all breed dog groomer.
Punctuating this time I have had a few breaks from grooming to raise a family and pursue other activities.
I have worked in various veterinary clinics for over 20 years, and I have worked for the Eltham Central, Montmorency and Box Hill Veterinary Hospitals since 1997.
I am a registered Feline Control Council (FCC) cat show judge and have judged all over Australia as well as internationally.
I have also breed and shown Minature Poodles and Persians for many years.
My love for animals has led to a rewarding career in grooming and veterinary nursing as well as enjoyable hobbies in breeding, showing and judging.
