My name is Suzie and I am the owner of Suzie SoftPaws. My love for pets started when I was very young. However, I did not have my first dog until I was 14 years old. My mother bought a miniature poodle and named him Babyduck. I was always fascinated when Babyduck came home from the groomer because he was so pristine, and his feet were AMAZING, so round and fluffy. That was how my love for grooming started. I always knew I wanted to be a groomer, but my life didn't work out that way until later in life. I was a Navy wife for about 8 years and then joined the Navy myself at the age of 28. After 12 years on active duty, I separated and went for my dream. It has been the best decision I have ever made. This was my calling, and I am so glad I made the plunge. Taking care of dogs is my passion and making sure they are as comfortable as possible is my most important job.
My name is Kyle and I have been a dog groomer for 7 years. I love every moment of it. I have loved animals my whole life and always wanted to work with animals. I got my wish in the grooming industry. I have had an interest in grooming for a long time and was lucky enough to start my career at PetSmart. I had a wonderful teacher and manager that taught me all the skills I know now. I have learned quite a lot since I started and am still learning new things every day. I love my job and love taking care of people's fur babies. I am so excited to be on Suzie's team and provide one-on-one attention for my fur clients!
My name is Miranda and I am at the beginning of my grooming career. Suzie has taken me on as an assistant to not only help but learn. I have always loved animals and always wanted to help them. I love that I can make them feel better and more comfortable. I believe they understand and say thank you sometimes and that warms my heart. That makes it all worth it. It doesn't feel like work when I can help these souls. I hope to help as many souls have the best lives possible because they make our lives better! My goal is to own my own business with my twin sister and groom and help as many animals as we can. I want to do as much good as I can for as long as I can and keep it going! I am so excited to be working on Suzie's team as an assistant so I can learn as much as possible!
