    Grooming Salon Manager

    Corey has been grooming family pets for over 15 years and the last 10 with Animal House. She began her career as a groomer in the corporate sector which has given her a wide spectrum of experience and knowledge. Prior experiences include managing and re-organizing multiple large salons as well as training new groomers at large grooming facilities. Following her heart, she transitioned to the non-profit sector with Animal House and loves that her hard work supports homeless animals.

    Corey specializes in working with dogs that are elderly and with special needs. She takes her time to ensure that each pet is safe and treated with respect. She also enjoys grooming cats! She loves hand scissoring and constantly strives to improve her grooming abilities.
