About The Groomers
Kimberly grew up in rural Matteson, IL on the family farm. Her family has always owned dogs (and cats and sometimes fish) and she always wanted to do something with animals. Kim graduated high school from Rich East in Park Forest a semester early to attend grooming school in Frankfort, IL. She has been grooming and eating up any information on our domestic friends as much as she possibly can since then! Her favorite breed to groom is the Bichon Frise and she really loves to deshed as well! Outside of grooming, she enjoys spending time with her and Devin's babies, sewing, drawing and writing.
Devin grew up all over the United States - starting with his birth place of Florida. His family has always owned pets be it dogs, cats, rodents or snakes. He graduated from Denton High School in Texas and started working at CVS Caremark. He moved to Illinois to be with Kimberly in 2009 where he caught the grooming bug and began to attend grooming school. Devin enjoys and excels at handstripping terriers - a dying skill, but an important one in the grooming world. In June 2012, Devin quit working at CVS to work with Kimberly full time. Outside of grooming, Devin enjoys being an amazing daddy (according to Kimberly, Cassidy, Torben & Merrick) working on cars, cooking, writing and playing video games.
We support education for pet owners and strive to provide the best care for our client's pets. We believe in health for pets inside and out and work with our clients as a team.
We attend as many seminars and still try to make as many connections with groomers with skills that exceed our own. This is a constantly moving profession and we want to be sure we are moving with it in the right direction!
Our first two legged child was born at home with a midwife team on December 5th, 2013. Her name is Cassidy (or Cass.) She is incredibly rambunctious and an absolute social butterfly who is very intuitive. She enjoys anything to do with animals (especially horses,) reading, climbing trees and making stories.
Torben was born on August 7th, 2015 at home. He is incredibly inquisitive, engrossing himself in a task, but his smile can light up a room. He's a sweet child who loves anything with wheels, art and building.
Merrick (or Mack) was born on May 7th, 2020 at home with an amazing midwife! He has been a light during a such a tumultuous time with Covid-19 happening. Mack is an absolute moose - he loves to eat and seems determined to catch up to his older siblings!
Jake AKA Jay Bird, is a 15 year old Cream Standard Poodle. We received him from a very sweet groomer who rescued him from a hoarding situation. He's been in our family since March 17th, 2012. He loves snuggling with Mommy and playing with any person!
Huey is a 8 year old 9lb Terrier mix. He was rehomed to us by a long time client whose situation changed in December 2017. He's a rambunctious little snuggle bug and a terrier through and through!
