My family moved to Hummelstown when I was in third grade, and with the exception of a few months after graduating from high school, I have lived here ever since. I started working as an apprentice pet groomer in 1985, and have been working with animals ever since. I have enjoyed time in the dog show world, continuing to expand my knowledge of grooming and handling of animals. I was fortunate enough to join the Hershire staff in 2013 part time, and I have been happy to meet and help our clients. My husband, Tom and I, have a daughter, Tara, currently living in Japan. We live in Hummelstown with our 2 Dobermans, Tucker and Tia, and Standard Poodle, Gotcha.
I grew up in Lebanon County and have two daughters, Katelyn and Katrina. I also have 3 dogs, two German shepherds and a vizsla, two cats, and a chinchilla. I love working with animals. I look forward to working at Hershire and meeting all of the clients. Please come in and say Hi!
