Marissa has been grooming for 5 years and working with animals for 7. She always knew she wanted to work with animals every since she was young; he volunteered at her local humane society when she was in 6th grade, and she immediately knew she was meant to care for animals. She helped most with washing the intake dogs and that's where her passion for grooming started.
After she moved to Virginia, she saw an ad that Petsmart was looking to hire a grooming trainee. She went through their apprenticeship and got certified in basic grooming. After that, she advanced her skills working closely with advanced stylists, and eventually began training all the new groomers that came to Petsmart.
She enjoys everything about grooming, but her favorite part is getting to build relationships with people and their pets. There's nothing more rewarding to me than caring for a pet through all stages of their life, and being someone who is trusted to care for your best friend.
